Using the Force Install setting


The Force Install option is available for all extensions, at extension level. It allows you to force CAST Imaging to ALWAYS install a specific release of a specific extension in all of your applications. Set the release you would like and then enable the Force Install toggle:

CAST sets some extensions to Force Install by default and with the latest release (at the time when your deployment was installed) in order to provide additional features and behaviour - see Force installed extensions .

What is the aim of this option?

This option has two principal aims:

  • to ensure that every application you onboard gets a specific release of an extension, thereby ensuring analysis result stability.
  • to ensure that extensions providing specific behaviour or features are always installed in every application you onboard.

Can I see which extensions are set to Force Install?
