This plugin serves to integrate the editor with an external file manager (an application that provides file browse/upload capabilities). It defines the protocol to associate the file manager application with any dialog window field that has a "filebrowser" property in its dialog definition.
Note: This plugin is only responsible for the communication between CKEditor and an external file manager. You need to either connect a custom file manager that uses an appropriate API, or use a ready to use file manager compatible with CKEditor like CKFinder.
This is an official plugin provided and supported by CKEditor developers.
The recommended way to install all CKEditor add-ons is to create a custom build by using Online builder. To do that, click the Add to my editor button on the plugin page. When you are done, click the Build my editor button on the right side of the page to go to Online builder.
Note: This add-on is already selected to be a part of your current build.

pluginsfolder of your CKEditor installation. Example:
