Frequently asked questions about the Nuxeo Marketplace.
Packages are sets of plug-ins for Nuxeo software, with additional resources such as install/upgrade/uninstall scripts, descriptions, license, graphics, etc.
Packages are not replacements for plugins, but instead a container for plug-ins to ease their installation and update. We encourage all plug-in creators to package them: it simplifies the provisioning / installation / upgrade significantly.
Also, Marketplace packages can be published on the Nuxeo Marketplace, thus giving them a great visibility.
Packages can have several support levels, and the support is indicated on package metadata.
Categories available are:
Supported by Nuxeo: The package is supported by Nuxeo's support team and is included in the Nuxeo Connect subscription.
Supported by third-party: The package is supported by an SI or other software provider and may be subject to different SLA and pricing. Support is not delivered through Nuxeo Connect Support.
Not supported: The package is offered "as-is" and is not supported by Nuxeo or any affiliated partner.
It's very easy. Follow the documentation for package creation and submit it to the Nuxeo Marketplace. When the packages are approved, they will be available for installation in a Nuxeo product, through the Update Center of the Admin Center.
A plug-in already created for the Nuxeo Platform (or related products), typically will take 0.5 - 1 day of integration-type work to package them for Nuxeo Marketplace.
The Nuxeo Connect team performs a quality review of the package: Provided documentation, set up process, checking the first steps works ok. Nuxeo is not responsible for any troubles caused by third party vendor plugin on your data and from a general perspective, you should pay attention to the following note.
Customers must validate packages on their own system and assess they are not causing damage on their installed system before going to production and putting any data at risk.
As a System Integrator, Can I Use the Private Packages Feature of the Admin Center to Deliver Updates (of Specific Code) to My Customers?
Yes. We have designed Private Packages to support this use case. We call this the "private marketplace channel". Contact us if you are interested in such a feature.
