Hi!

I want to write a plugin that appears in the right panel on the flow, a bit like the GDPR plugin. The aim is to display information read from a separate REST web service.

I want a lot of flexibility over the format of the information I display. Can I do that? The GDPR type plugin doesn't seem to have any control over the HTML generated? Is there a down-and-dirty way I can do this?

    Hi,

    The plugin component Custom Fields allows to display custom information on datasets in the right panel. The GDPR plugin uses this component.

    As of today, plugins do not really allow custom HTML/JS (or it is very hacky) so you should use the backend (for example with macros) to update the values of the custom fields.

    I hope this helps.
