    explanation about extension

    yoann63

      Hi,

       

      i'm not totally sur of roles of extensions in the EPO.

      I'm a little lost with the extension part and the software manager.

       

      As i understood... I need to put the product i use in the check in part (in the software manager) and in a second time, download the extension of theses products contained in the manager and then upload them in the extension part (is that clear what i say ?)

       

      But i just put the quarantine manager in the check in software manager to test it, and it appear automatically in the extension...

      It's not clear for me

       

      Thanks for your explanations

          Extensions are what allow ePO to interact with a product: the package is what ePO can deploy to the client machines to install the product. Most products have two extensions: a "management" extension, which allows ePO to create policies and tasks for the product, and a "reporting" extension, which allows ePO to understand the events and messages that the point product sends back.

           

          So, if you want ePO to be able to control a product, check in the extensions for that product.

          If you want ePO to be able to install the product as well, check in the package.
