Integration Studio allows you to create an extension that can afterwards be used in any eSpace, after its publication in the Platform Server. How?

To publish a new extension you must be granted the Allow Extensions permission. If your extension exports entities, the Allow Extensions permission is also required. Check with the Service Center administrator for a list of your permissions.

How to create an extension:

  1. In the File menu or in the Toolbar, click New ;

In the Start Screen of Integration Studio, select the option New Extension.

  1. The "Select Application Server for new Extension" window is automatically launched and you must select the application server where the extension is to be deployed. How?

  1. Specify the following properties:

    • Name: name of the extension.

    • Application Server: indicates the application server where the extension is to be published.

    • DBMS: indicates the Database Management System (DBMS) type that the extension is prepared to work with.

    • Description: description of the extension.

In the Extension editor you can afterwards change the extension properties.

Extension Elements

After creating the extension, you define actions, structures, entities, and resources that correspond to the elements exported by the external component you are using.

Integration Studio automatically creates the necessary source files that allow you to start developing the behavior of the actions. You can check them in the Resources tree of this extension.
