1. Need to add 'New' label to added plugins.
2. When does it disappear? After used? After user navigates away from menu? After session?

This feature is added partially in this PR: https://github.com/caskdata/cdap/pull/5492

Things that have been added,

  • Ability to upload a JAR & a JSON for an artifact,

  • Ability to validate both JAR and JSON files (just the file for jar, as in just checking for extensions & validating JSON for 'properties' & 'parents' fields)

Right now backend doesn't provide the information of adding new plugins (artifacts) so once the user adds a plugin through UI we just refresh the view to show the list of plugins in the left panel in UI. So post add plugin functionality is not yet there but we can add once the backend provides that information.
