Starting from LimeSurvey 2.05, LimeSurvey officially supports plugins. Some plugins will be supported by the LimeSurvey team and will go into core. Some will be supported by others, outside the LimeSurvey team. If you would like to use them, check out the available third party plugins. We hope you will also add your own plugin there!

To access the current available plugins that come together with your LimeSurvey installation: Configuration->Plugin manager.

LimeSurvey supports at the moment the following plugins:


Export results to R



By activating this plugin, you can perform basic authentication against an LDAP server. Make sure your PHP configuration has LDAP support enabled.

Enabling and configuring settings for plugin AuthLDAP v2.05+:

  1. Enable LDAP in PHP.INI.
  2. Verify that phpinfo.php shows that LDAP is enabled.
  3. The location of LimeSurvey's built-in phpinfo.php is: Upper Right Menu -- Configuration -- Settings -- Global Settings. Then, below the table, you will have a link for "Show PHPInfo".
  4. Go to LimeSurvey Plugin Manager.
  5. Configure LDAP plugin.

LimeSurvey internal database

This plugin is the default and can not be disabled. It uses the built in LimeSurvey database. It is a fall-back mechanism so that you can always login to the installation when needed.



STATA export


This plugin leaves authentication to the webserver and reads the result from a configurable server setting. This method has been around for a while, and was configured from config.php. If you used this authentication, you should enable the plugin in the plugins menu and move your configuration from config.php to the plugin's settings.

{Box|Feel free to contact the team via the bug tracker or IRC channel if problems arise and some of the plugins are not working as they are supposed to.}


Developing an authentication plugin

If you want to develop your own authentication plugin, please read our whole wiki on this topic - authentication plugin development.

I want to install third-party add-ons
