The dynamic plugins set in the operator config are not being loaded on console startup. Only plugins loaded in development mode are being activated. The frontend should initialize all plugins through the console proxy on load instead of loading the URLs directly.
1. Deploy console-demo-plugin on OpenShift cluster
[yapei@New_Mac dynamic-demo-plugin]$ oc apply -f oc-manifest.yaml
$ oc get pods -n console-demo-plugin
NAME READY STATUS RESTARTS AGE
console-demo-plugin-c9674944c-9r9fn 1/1 Running 0 5m4s
2. enable the demo plugin and save the changes
$ oc edit console.operator.openshift.io cluster
3. wait for new console pods created and running
4. check cm/console-config YAML to see if plugin settings are updated
$ oc get cm console-config -n openshift-console -o yaml | grep plugins -A1
5. open console URL and inspect window.SERVER_FLAGS.consolePlugins via browser console, it returns console-demo-plugin
