How do you add plugins to the Xen Orchestra that was built from source

First of all, thank you for all your videos and this forum. I appreciate the knowledge that has been shared.

I followed your video https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=lf_tNVomBcE&feature=youtu.be “How To Build Xen Orchestra from source.” Everything went smoothly. I am backing up my VMs and wanted to enable email reports. It says I need a plugin, but the plugins page is empty. I have searched google about installing the plugins, but it really appears to be over my head. I tried following the instructions here: https://xen-orchestra.com/forum/topic/438/install-plugins-in-open-source-ed, but I could not get it working.

Is there a video I have missed where you install plugins?

Thank you so much for your help.

When using the https://github.com/ronivay/XenOrchestraInstallerUpdater you want to add the line PLUGINS="all" to the xo-install.cfg file and it will install all the plugins while building it from source.

I knew there had to be a simple solution, I just could not figure it out.
