This article will guide you through the various administrative actions relating to the managing of extensions within your Appspace instance.
The Extensions listings page sorts and lists the extensions in a particular order that is reflected in various user interface locations on your Appspace instance.
From the Extensions page, click to select one of the extensions. The entire row should be highlighted to denote and help you confirm your selection. You should notice two arrows appear in the quick-launch shortcuts.
By using the Up or Down arrows, you should be able to rearrange and move the selected extension to the desired priority (appearance) order.
Disabling (and Enabling) Extensions
There are two different options for an administrator to remove access to an extension from a global level. If you have an extension on your Appspace server that you choose to remove (possibly for re-installation or upgrade reasons) – you should use the Delete option to completely remove the extension from the server. You also have the ability to Disable an extension which renders the extension inaccessible by all users on the server until it has been re-enabled. Disabling an extension will preserve all configurations, data files, and assets that are related to that extension.
From the main Extensions page, click to select the extension you wish to disable on the Appspace server (the selected extension’s row should be highlighted in light blue). Click on the Disable button from the quick-launch shortcut bar.
In the Confirmation dialog box, verify that you have selected the correct extension to be disabled. Click Yes to continue.
You should be returned to the extensions listing page where the disabled extension should be grayed out – indicating that it has been disabled. The extension will now be inaccessible and not appear in the extension stack drop-down menu.
To re-enable the extension, simply perform the same process as disabling but use the Enable button from the quick-launch shortcut bar.
Downloading (Exporting) Extensions
Within the Extension Manager page, you have the ability to download (export) an extension to your local machine. This is simply accomplished by clicking on the Download link under the Action column of the respective extension. You will be prompted to save the extension to your local machine in the .zip file archive format.
Managing Role Accessibility
Each extension will have (by default) certain role(s) associated with it that grants users with those role permissions the ability to access the extension. As an administrator, you have the ability to fine-tune these roles (add or remove roles) for each extension. Current roles with accessibility to each extension is listed under the Roles column.
From the main Extensions page, click on the name link of the extension for which you would like to edit the roles for.
You should be presented with the Extension Details page. Scroll down to the Roles section where you should see the currently assigned Roles. Click on the + (Manage Roles) icon to continue.
The Manage Roles window should appear and allow you to check/uncheck the boxes next to the various roles in the system. Once you have finished adding/removing roles for this extension, click OK to continue.
