How to Install Storage in Senaite

Hello, I’m new Plone and Senaite, but I would like to know how to install the add-on.

So far, I’ve done the following:

The egg var on buildout.cfg is as follows:

eggs =

Develop is set as follows

develop =

However, I can’t seem to get the storage page to load on the sidebar.


Once installed, you need to activate the addon in Senaite.

  1. Log in as admin
  2. Go to “Site Setup”
  3. Under “Plone Configuration” go to “Addons”
  4. Under “Available add-ons” you should see Check the box and click activate.

You should now be able to use the addon!
It’s been a while so you may have already figured this out yourself, but I’m posting here b/c I had the same problem.

Thanks for your post, it helped me install initially (I’m also new to senaite/Plone :slightly_smiling_face:)

I am also trying to install the storage addon.
I added the same lines as hthompson to buildout.cfg (eggs and develop)
Unfortunately after running the buildout, it gave this error in the first line:

Couldn't develop '/home/senaite/senaitelims/src/' (not found)
Unused options for buildout: 'deprecation-warnings'.

Hope someone can help me.

Hi all,
I solved the ‘error about’.
However, i found that senaite-storage 1.0.3 is not compatible with senaite lims 2.0.0.

Any idea if and when this will happen?

Many thanks in advance for the great work!
