why only controlled by Sys Admin?

    Hi Ari! That's an interesting idea.

    At the moment, installing plugins requires access to the Sisense server's file system (usually via RDP - remote desktop) and as such requires a higher access level than Designer users usually have.

    Additionally, plugins are system-wide. Turning off a plugin will turn it off for all users and dashboards, and this operation may thus break dashboards the designer performing it isn't aware of. Same goes for adding new plugins, that can have an effect on the entire application.

    Due to this, I believe it is sensible that only Sys Admin users are allowed to perform this action. However, if you believe other roles should, you can submit a feature request via the feature request forum, or by contacting your CSM.
