    Hey Hidayat,

    Any apps you have installed would show up under your Admin>Apps>Manage page. You will have the option to deactivate the app for reactivation later, or you can uninstall the app completely so it no longer has access to your account. As for removing local data, that would depend on the app that you're referencing I suspect. Some developers may handle this information differently and in some cases these apps may populate ticket data.

    Let me know if there's any other questions you have!

    I have agents asking if the apps can start out hidden and they can click on the app button to unhide them when needed. How might this be possible?

    Hi Steve,

    This workflow can be accomplished by using Contextual Workspaces. With Contextual Workspaces configured, you can expand, collapse, and chose which apps open by default when working on tickets for your agents.

    This documentation should help you get that process started.

    Do you know if exist a way to read the settings from an app via API.

    I know we have /api/v2/apps/{app-id}.json but this is not showing the actual value from the settings just the defualt value.

    Can you help me with this?

    Hey Marco,

    You can do this from within the app itself by using the metadata method of the ZAFClient Api. Though calling from outside of the application isn't possible for security's sake.

    Have a wonderful day!
