This article contains a description of changes to the Marketplace that affect developers publishing apps. Official Marketplace website: Creatio Marketplace.

Learn more about the development of Marketplace apps in the developer documentation: Development for Creatio Marketplace.

Overhauled rating and review system

Update date:

We are implementing several updates to our review system on Creatio Marketplace. Users used to leave feedback anonymously, and only Marketplace app developers had access to the feedback. In the future, due to new regulations to ensure the authenticity of our reviews, this process will be transparent and controlled. Only verified users, i. e., users who are currently using the Marketplace app or used it within the previous twelve months, will be able to leave reviews. This new system is designed to improve the visibility of reviews and let developers interact directly, thereby increasing transparency and building trust within our marketplace.

Key changes:

  • Public Accessibility. All reviews will now be publicly available on the Reviews tab of the listing page, encouraging the active sharing of insights and experiences.
  • Review Guidelines Update. Follow our updated guidelines to access and read reviews.
  • Ratings. Only verified user ratings will be included in the overall rating of the Marketplace app, providing a more accurate reflection of recent user experiences and feedback.

These changes take effect in May, 2024. We believe these changes will provide fair conditions for both users and developers. Learn more about updated rating and review system: Developer Guide: Ratings and Reviews.

Engage your users. We encourage you to actively involve users of your Marketplace app in the evaluation process. This involvement is vital to increasing your app awareness and obtaining valuable feedback.

Develop a new Marketplace app in Freedom UI

Update date:

Due to evolution of the Creatio platform, we have introduced new requirements for developing Marketplace apps in Freedom UI. Learn more: Requirements for Marketplace app.

Developers must create new Marketplace apps in Freedom UI. However, Freedom UI sections can include Classic UI section counterparts.

  • New customers are expected to use the Freedom UI shell with Freedom UI pages.
  • Existing Creatio users that have Classic UI shell are expected to use both Classic UI and Freedom UI pages.

These changes take effect on May 1, 2024. All existing listings exempt from migration to Freedom UI will be marked with a special label on the Creatio Marketplace, and no new Classic UI only listings will be published.

If your Marketplace app is based on Classic UI sections, we recommend migrating your app to Freedom UI to meet the new requirements.

New requirements for developing Marketplace app functionality

Update date:

Due to evolution of the Creatio platform, we have introduced new requirements for developing Marketplace app functionality. Learn more: Requirements for Marketplace app.

  • The Maintainer package property must include the maintainer specified in the public profile. Do not develop a Marketplace app using the Customer maintainer.
  • The Version app property must be numbered following the X.Y.Z format, e.g., 1.0.25.
  • Update the Version app property for each new release.
  • The Maintainer app property must include the maintainer specified in the public profile. Do not use the Customer maintainer.

These changes take effect on April 1, 2024. Ensure that your Marketplace app follows the new requirements.
