Hi Lavin,


You can refer to this documentation: https://success.outsystems.com/Documentation/11/Extensibility_and_Integration/Extend_Logic_with_Your_Own_Code/Managing_Extensions/Download_an_Extension

 @Gemi,

I don't see a guide in the link you shared, that details the steps that one needs to port an extension created in OutSystems 11 to OutSystems 10.

@Lavin, 

 I don't think there is such a guide. As the route forward is from version 10 to version 11, there will not be a lot of documentation available going the refers way. I do understand there are customers with versions older than 11.

First of all, did you try and load a v11 extension in v10 (i can't try as have no v10 to try out). But ok, when you'r asking for a guide, you most likely already tried and fail to do this.

I would think you need to do the following steps:

  1. installed the v11 extension in a v11 environment (like your personal environment
  2. open the extension in Microsoft Visual Studio (if you don't have it install the community edition 2019).
  3. in your v10 environment, create a new extension, define the same structures and actions
  4. start editing the C# code using Visual Studio, and copy/paste the C# code from your v11 version
  5. Fix any errors, build the application in Visual Studio
  6. Back in Integration studio publish the extension.
