Installation in Verse On Premise

You may either download Huddo Boards applications.json file and use it as a localFileProvider or just copy the url for it and use it as a httpDataProvider by following the instructions below.

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
