What is the Appian AppMarket?
Appian’s AppMarket is a marketplace where Appian and its partners display a diverse range of business applications and technical applications or extensions that have been built on Appian’s platform.
What can I find on the AppMarket?
In general, you’ll find two categories of apps on the AppMarket.
An Appian product extension that can bring the power of other systems right into the Appian interface via a UI component
Plug-in (Connected System)
An Appian product extension that make it easy to integrate with enterprise systems and services
Plug-in (Function & Smart Service)
An Appian product extension to add a custom smart service to use in process models or custom function to use in expressions
Tools to facilitate Appian implementations or horizontally expand end-user capabilities
Line of Business Apps
Solution by Partner
Applications built by Appian Partners that address a business use-case in a repeatable manner while still allowing for customer specific requirements and configurations
How do I find an app on the AppMarket?
Search using key terms in the Community search bar or use the filters to find what you are looking for.
What does Compatible Version(s) mean? Will this app be supported in a new version than those listed?
Compatible Version(s) are the version(s) of Appian that the author has verified they’ve tested an app or plug-in with when submitting to the AppMarket. With a new version four times a year, Appian strives to make backwards compatibility a breeze. In general, plug-ins should work in all Appian versions newer than the minimum version listed. Remember that free, downloadable apps are provided as-is and on a use-at-your-own-risk basis, and their functionality is not guaranteed by Appian.
How does the Industry filter align with the types?
The Industry filter and categorization on an app primarily applies to Line of Business Apps. The vast majority of Technical Apps will be applicable to All Industries.
What does the Author - “Community Contributor” mean?
These are apps that have been submitted by a member of the Appian Community. They are not necessarily affiliated with the company the individual works for at the time of submission.
What about pricing?
Apps are classified as either Free* or Paid. Many of the apps on the AppMarket are free to use with a licensed product and are available to download for Appian customers and partners.
There are some free apps like the Appian Accelerators that are available to prospects and customers but are not immediately downloadable.
The cost of apps designated as Paid varies depending on the app and the author. More information on the cost model for these apps can be obtained from the author via a demo and/or follow-up.
How are Free Apps supported?
Free, downloadable apps are Community supported and should be tested thoroughly. Free, downloadable apps are provided as-is and on a use-at-your-own-risk basis, and their functionality is not guaranteed by Appian. The content is free to use with a licensed product, but it is made available as-is. Customers are responsible for validating and testing plug-ins before deployment in production, as well as validating plug-in functionality in their applications before upgrading to new versions of Appian Software.
How do I obtain one of these apps?
If you are interested in an app, the available action presented to you will depend on the app and your user type in Community. Note if you’re not logged in, you will be requested to log in first.
Free and Downloadable Apps can be immediately obtained by users with the Customer and Partner user type. Please click on the “Download” button to start the download.
Free plug-ins that meet the deployment guidelines to Appian Cloud sites can be deployed to an Appian Cloud environment directly via the Admin Console or via a support case.
In all other situations, you will see a “Schedule Demo” button. Clicking on that button will send your information to the appropriate Appian representative and they will contact you shortly about your interest and the next steps.
How does liking and rating work?
You can like an app and in some cases rate an app too. Like and rate access will be based on your Community user type and the app.
How do I submit an app to the AppMarket?
Free and paid apps of all types can be submitted through the AppMarket Submissions site. The submission process will guide you through the required content for submission. In most cases the description, screenshots, app icon and appropriate technical files are needed. New versions of existing apps can also submitted through the site.
What does the review entail and how long does it take?
The diagram below summarizes the review process for AppMarket submissions. Most submissions are reviewed and listed within 10 business days assuming there are no revisions needed. Please note that the process may take longer in certain cases depending on the specific submission. For plug-ins, the policies are described in the section below and for component plug-ins take a look at this documentation link.
Developers can extend the Appian platform using plug-ins that can add new functionality to your Appian applications. Plug-ins that are being developed need to adhere to the policies outlined below in order to be deployed to an Appian cloud environment and optionally be shared on the Appian AppMarket and downloadable via the Admin Console. The list is not all-inclusive, but instead it outlines the minimum requirements for a plug-in to be considered Cloud approved
More information and guidelines for Component Plug-ins can be found in the Integration SDK section of Appian documentation.
