The information below is an excerpt from IBM Connections Developers

To work with the Organization Extensions page, open a browser and sign in to your Connections Cloud organization as an administrator. Click Admin > Manage Organization, then click Organization Extensions in the navigation list.

Click the Add button.

Import an application: This is typically the simplest method for adding applications and extensions because you can model your code on existing examples and then import it into Connections Cloud without needing to fill in the entire dialog box. To import your application, click Choose File, browse for the JSON file containing the application, and select it. The code that you import is validated and error messages display in the editing pane, where you can make corrections.

Deploying extensions using the built-in endpoint

Verse On-Premises implemented a built-in endpoint to serve the application’s JSON data from a local file or an HTTP hosted file. If storing the applications JSON data as a static file works for you, this is the way to go.

Two data providers are implemented in the built-in endpoint:

  • Local file data provider: Serves the applications JSON data from a local file on the Domino server. This allows you to deploy extensions without dependency on another server. The path of the file can be specified using a notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Applications_Json_FilePath.

  • HTTP data provider: Serves the applications JSON data from an HTTP hosted file. This allows you to deploy applications.json to a centralized HTTP server. The HTTP URL of the file can be specified using notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Applications_Json_URL.

The notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Data_Provider_Name controls which data provider to use, either localFileProvider or httpDataProvider. By default, if none is specified, localFileProvider will be used. In either case, the data provider will periodically check the source applications.json file for updates, so you don’t have to restart the server after a new version of applications.json is deployed.

To use the local file data provider:

  • Make sure notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Data_Provider_Name is either clear or set to localFileProvider.

  • Deploy applications.json to the Domino server.

  • Make sure notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Applications_Json_FilePath is set to the file path of applications.json. For example:

    VOP_Extensibility_Applications_Json_FilePath=D:\data\applications.json
    

To use the HTTP data provider:

  • Make sure notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Data_Provider_Name is set to httpDataProvider.

    VOP_Extensibility_Data_Provider_Name=httpDataProvider
    
  • Deploy applications.json to the HTTP server.

  • Make sure notes.ini parameter VOP_Extensibility_Applications_Json_URL is set to the HTTP URL of applications.json. For example:

    VOP_Extensibility_Applications_Json_URL=https://files.renovations.com/vop/applications.json
