Server Addons in the Customization Manager
Similar to the client manage addon form, each setting can be configured in an easy to use interface rather than modifying XML. Server Addons are administered within the Customization Manager from the Server Addons Tab. The following functions are available from the Server Addons ribbon:
Installing a New Addon
In the lower left details under the activation button, there is a permissions block that allows for the Addons to anonymize or delete users and their associated data based upon the criteria outlined in the Setting Name, Type, and Description. For more information on these permission please read the AnonymizeUser Command and DeleteUser Command guides.
Editing Server Addons
To edit the values in a server Addon:
The Reset Settings will restore only the changes in the Values column to the default settings when Addon was initially installed.
Updating A Server Addon
The updating process does include validations checks which will warn you if there are problems with the Addon update such as if you attempt to update to an older version, if required files are missing, or if a new version removes an existing value.
If the System manager uses an external assembly, you will be prompted to restart the System Manager.
If the Addon does not convert successfully, or a non-Atlas Server Addon needs to be added after 4.0 has been installed:
Exporting an Addon
Users may choose to export an Addon with the default settings. The default file name will be the Addon name with a zip extension. The initial directory is set as the last directory used when uploading or exporting an Addon. If the user has never uploaded/exported an Addon, it is set to the base path of the Customization Manager. The last used directory is saved as in user settings for the Customization Manager so it will be specific to each windows profile user.
