understanding between plugin and extentions

Can some one explain what exactly the difference is between Plugins and Extensions?
I have seen documentation on plugins and tool tips of each of them but could not differentiate much.

    Hi @chandu
    If you are referring to the Dataiku Cloud

    1) Plugins would be the existing plugin available in the Plugin store :
    https://www.dataiku.com/product/plugins/ Note some may not be visible in the launchpad or compatible/applicable to Dataiku Cloud.
    2) Extensions, on the other hand, would be used to install specific features like Automation or API nodes, Git integration or Spark-on-K8s etc. These actions would be performed from Administration for Installed DSS but as there is access to no Administration these tasks are performed from Extensions.
