With the eLAB SDK you can tailor eLabJournal to your all-encompassing research data platform. The eLAB SDK allows you to customize, integrate or extend almost any functionality within eLabJournal, by creating ‘custom plug-ins’ called add-ons that become available in the in the Marketplace. The addition of new features or the creation of new buttons in which actions are combined is just a few examples of what you can achieve with the SDK. By using JavaScript and the API, you can create add-ons, that can easily be integrated into the ELN to tailor the application according to your workflow.


Before you can start developing eLabJournal add-ons, you first need to be listed as a developer in our developer programme. Please contact our customer support to register and provide you access to our SDK development environment.


Once you are enrolled in the developer programme, you will receive access to the SDK development environment with a developer account that can be used for SDK add-on development and testing. The developer account will be provided to you as a clean system installation in which you can configure your own set-up without interfering with your production environment or data.


In case your organization has a dedicated system installation (Private Cloud or On-Premises installation) with an acceptance server, it is also possible to use your acceptance server for SDK add-on development. For more information, please contact us.
