Activity allows for the addition of a Wizlink Plugin to a scenario.

Plugins are custom software components that expand Wizlink’s capabilities and add extra functionalities to the scenario.


To use a plugin in a scenario, first choose a Plugin Source depending on where the plugin is located.

Local Folder plugins can be found in individuals folders at C:\ProgramData\Wizlink2\Plugins\Local. This location can also be accessed from Wizlink Folder->Plugins in Wizlink’s menu bar.

After clicking on the Plugin dropdown, a list of available plugins will be displayed. The circular arrow button will refresh the list, if necessary.


Direct File Path can also be used as a plugin source. Copy and paste a direct path to the plugin’s main .wll file into the Plugin File Path field.

Note: Direct File Path requires a Literal path, not a String variable.


Wizlink plugins can also be sourced from BCC. Plugin name can be filled in directly. Clicking on the arrow pointing down icon will also bring up a list of all currently available plugins.

Note: For more information on how to upload a plugin file to BCC see Plugins.

Instance is the custom internal name of a plugin. Giving each instance of a plugin an unique name allows for significantly shorter operation time and reduced memory consumption. It is especially useful if the same plugin will be called multiple times and used to handle large-volume files.
On the other hand, some plugins may require you to use the same instance name when calling multiple related methods in the same scenario.

Method allows for selection of an action/procedure that is to be performed. Selecting a method will usually bring up more, plugin-specific, parameters.


Note: see also Wizlink Plugins Manual.
