Packs & integrations

👉 What are Packs?

Packs are Coda’s version of integrations or plug-ins. They can connect your doc to the apps that you use every day so you can pull live data in or push updates out automatically. As an IT Admin, we understand the importance of how we manage your data through our integrations. To learn more about Packs, check out or watch the video below!

🔒 Pack security measures

Here’s the steps we’ve taken to ensure your information is secure with Coda’s Packs.

Restricted network requests

We ensure Packs only share data with the website they say they do. Some of our most popular Packs are integrations — connections to external data sources. Pack makers must declare which domains their Pack connects to, which is published for your peace of mind in each Pack’s Security tab, found on the Pack listing page.
Coda enforces that Packs can only ever connect to these declared domains.

Locked-down authentication

We never let developers touch or view users’ login details and always store them securely.
For Packs that require user authorization credentials, Coda handles credentials on behalf of the Pack, stores them encrypted at rest, and applies them to outgoing requests such that neither Pack code, Pack makers, nor other users of a doc ever have access to them.

Only what you share, and no more

When a Pack is executed, it only receives the data that the user explicitly provided — e.g. formula parameters — and no other content from your doc.

Rigorous evaluation

Packs run in a dedicated, secure environment. We execute Packs in a secure sandbox environment that isolates Pack executions from Coda’s broader infrastructure, data, and from other executions of Packs.
The infrastructure receives an annual professional penetration test and receives constant evaluation via Coda’s bug bounty program.

Covered by everything that already makes Coda secure

SOC 2 Compliant, data encryption, data access controls, and more all come standard with Coda.

🎛️ How do I manage what Packs my workspace uses?

Coda empowers admins to make the call on what Packs they support in a Coda workspace via our Pack approvals tool.
For Enterprise admins, team members can easily make requests for your review of an admin-disabled Pack from their doc. As the admin, you can view and manage these requests from the settings menu.

🧠 How do I learn more about specific Packs?

For specific Packs users can browse the documentation and security tabs of the Pack listing pages to see what the Pack does and what access types the Pack requires (e.g. read, write, offline, etc.). Coda also show what permissions it requests as part of the setup process for a Pack.
Domains
Under domains, you’ll see which domains the Pack can share and request information from. Coda restricts Packs from requesting or sharing information from domains that are not listed here.
Scopes
Under scopes, you’ll see what data the Pack has access to and whether it can read or write to the above websites. Packs are restricted to the data that you request, nothing more.
Authorization
Under authorization, you’ll see what protocol the Pack uses for logging in users, primarily oAuth2. Coda encrypts, stores, and executes credentials separately from Packs so nothing touches your log ins—including Pack code, Pack makers, and even teammates operating in a shared doc.
Here’s the Jira Pack’s listing page, for example:
