Nuxeo Platform User Documentation

Using Nuxeo Gadgets from Other Applications

Updated: July 31, 2019

This add-on is deprecated since Nuxeo Platform 6.0.

When the Document Management module is installed on the Nuxeo Platform, it is possible to use Nuxeo gadgets in other applications, such as iGoogle.

This takes 2 steps, to make this work:

  1. your administrator must authorize the external application to access the Nuxeo Platform,
  2. you can add the Nuxeo gadget on the external application.

In this page, we will take the example of iGoogle, which is a pretty easy example. For more complex use cases, you can report to the page Using OAuth.
