Joget DX Available for Download

Joget Apps are packaged files that contain Form, Datalist, Userview, Process definitions, custom plugin and or app data. Apps can be exported from another Joget installation, or downloaded from the Joget Marketplace. Importing a new app into an environment with an existing App ID will result in the creation of a new App Version. You may also choose to retain or override environment variables and plugin default properties by checking on the checkboxes.
