Deploying an Addon Collection

To deploy an addon it must be rolled-up into an add-on Collection. A collection is a single zip file that contains all the resources for one or more addons. For this example we will first make a small add-on, then create the addon collection for it.

To Create a simple Addon

If you already have an add-on to deploy, skip this step

  1. Log on to the admin site and open the navigator to Navigator >> Manage Addons >> Advanced >> click on Add-ons
  2. Click Add to create a new addon
  3. Fill in the following
    • Set the name to Hello World
    • Set the HTML field to "Hello World"
    • Click the Placement tab and click "Place on Pages"
    • Click OK
  4. Test Your add-on by editing any page and selecting it from the add-on menu. It will render as Hello World.

Create a Collection for your add-on

  1. Log on to the admin site and open the navigator to Navigator >> Manage Addons >> Advanced >> click on Add-on Collections
  2. Click Add to create a new Collection
  3. Fill in the following
    • Set name to Hello World Collection
    • If your addon has any files that need to be included, add them in the resources tab. For instance, if you created a DLL called helloWorld.dll, add "helloWorld.dll" in the executable file list. If your add-on(s) needs the image "myImage.jpg" in the images folder of your website, add "/images/myImage.jpg" to the www File List.
    • Click OK to save the collection.
  4. Now go edit your add-on and select "Hello World Collection" for it's collection.

Deploy the Collection

  1. Use the Collection Manager to install the Collection Exporter if it is not already under Tools.
  2. Open the Navigator to Tools >> Export Collection
  3. Select your Hello World Collection and click OK.
  4. Save the resulting .zip file
  5. If you have created a Visual Studio Windows Library (DLL file), drag and drop it into the zip file as well.
