Introduction

Sometimes you may need to blacklist a specific extension from being auto-installed, for example:

  • the extension may not be compatible with the release of AIP Core you are using on your Node
  • the extension may be known to cause specific issues for your environment

Things to be aware of before blacklisting an extension:

  • you cannot blacklist a specific release of an extension, it is all releases of the extension or not at all
  • the blacklist configuration is performed at Node level, not global level (i.e. all Applications), therefore if you want to blacklist an extension for all Applications managed in Console, you will need to perform this action on all Nodes

Step 1 - Edit the configuration file

Edit the following file in a text editor:

≥ 2.x
%PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\AIP-Node\application-default.yml

1.x
%PROGRAMDATA%\CAST\AipConsole\AipNode\aip-node-app.properties

Locate or add the following lines in to the file:

≥ 2.x (this section needs to be copied into the file)
extensions:
  # Blacklist for extensions/plugins that are known to cause issues
  # Provide extensions or plugin id that should be ignored separated by ";"
  blacklist:

1.x
# ==============
# Blacklist for extensions/plugins that are known to cause issues
# --------------
# Provide extensions or plugin id that should be ignored separated by ";"
extensions.blacklist=

Add the IDs of the extensions you want to blacklist, separated by ";", for example (note that for ≥ 2.x, you must ensure that a space exists between blacklist: and the first extension ID):

≥ 2.x (this section needs to be copied into the file)
extensions:
  # Blacklist for extensions/plugins that are known to cause issues
  # Provide extensions or plugin id that should be ignored separated by ";"
  blacklist: com.castsoftware.dmtdotnetnugetresourcesextractor;com.castsoftware.wcf

1.x
# ==============
# Blacklist for extensions/plugins that are known to cause issues
# --------------
# Provide extensions or plugin id that should be ignored separated by ";"
extensions.blacklist=com.castsoftware.dmtdotnetnugetresourcesextractor;com.castsoftware.wcf

Save the file when you have completed the changes.

Step 2 - Apply configuration changes

Restart the Node Windows Service (or batch file) to ensure all changes are taken into account.
