Hi all, I have a question concerning widgets in Service Catalog.
We are currently running SC 14.1 inc2 and use widgets for presenting a number of offerings to the users.
I'm wondering if it's possible to invoke a plugin from Request widgets, or is the context for the plugin different in a way that makes it impossible?
We use plugins in some of our offerings, but they are accessed the "normal" way through the catalog GUI.
Thanks in advance!

Good Morning Karolin. When you mentioned "use widgets". Do you write/build these yourself or are these the widgets, used by the Unified Self Service(USS) portal/UI?When this is about the ootb USS-widgets, then the answer is no. Since these are all 'hard coded' so to speak. When self-written, I do not know whether you can execute/call a CA Service Catalog Plugin from within your code. Sorry for not having a useful answer on this for you.Perhaps some one in the community does have experience with this. Thanks for your understanding and with kind regards, Louis van Amelsfort.
When I talk about using widgets I mean creating a HTML-page and use the built in functions for creating widgets:
What I meant was, if i create a form and invoke a plugin from the form with invokePlugin, it works in the catalog. If i use the form in an offering, and open the offering from a request widget - it won't work?
Thanks for your answer
I will try to write a custom JS-function to invoke the plugin.
Thank you very much.
