Plugins configuration

Plugin configurations are stored in ./config/plugins.js|ts (see project structure). Each plugin can be configured with the following available parameters:

enabledEnable (true) or disable (false) an installed pluginBoolean

Used to override default plugin configuration (defined in strapi-server.js)Object
Optional, only required for local plugins
Path to the plugin's folderString

module.exports = ({ env }) => ({
// enable a plugin that doesn't require any configuration
i18n: true,

// enable a custom plugin
myplugin: {
// my-plugin is going to be the internal name used for this plugin
enabled: true,
resolve: './src/plugins/my-local-plugin',
config: {
// user plugin config goes here

// disable a plugin
myotherplugin: {
enabled: false, // plugin installed but disabled
💡 Tip

If no specific configuration is required, a plugin can also be declared with the shorthand syntax 'plugin-name': true.
