# Action Packages#

You can package a set of actions in an action package. Action packages have 2 main advantages:

• They can be distributed using the Action Distribution System

• They can be enabled and disabled for the entire workspace

To define an action package set the type to package and provide a list of actions.

• A list of action ids is provided through the “actions” key

For workspace owners or administrators the packages show up in the Action settings for your workspace:
