The id of the extension:
The extension's title. CAST recommends using a meaningful title. For example:
The extension version number. This must use the format defined by Semantic Versioning 2.0.0. For example: 1.0.0. Please follow the versioning policy defined within your own team.
Maximum length is 30.
The Stable versus Pre-Release versions is encoded inside the version itself, following the Semantic Versioning conventions also:
The author of the extension using an email address. Multiple email addresses should be separated by a comma. However in the case of CAST provided extensions the following values are recommended:
|owners||The owner of the extension. In the case of official CAST extensions the owner is always "CAST".|
Each extension must include a link to the related extension documentation.
The documentation, stored in a separate page (which MUST BE FREELY AVAILABLE ON THE INTERNET) must include the following information:
|description||A quick description of the extension. This description is displayed in the CAST Extension Downloader, therefore cannot exceed 200 characters. The description must contain a few details about the extension, which scenarios the extension can be used in, what results should be expected and how the results generated by the extension impact the results of the entire analysis.|
|releaseNotes||A link to a a description of the changes made in each release of the package. This field only shows up when the _Updates_ tab is selected and the package is an update to a previously installed package. It is displayed where the Description would normally be displayed.|
This element configured the dependencies required by the extension - i.e. which other extensions must be installed and which release of CAST AIP is required (this is mandatory). For example if an extension is compliant with CAST AIP 7.3.6 and/or 8.0.0 then this should be added here.
This element also provides the possibility to declare dependencies between extensions.
|licenseUrl||This concerns the type of license. In the case of CAST extensions provided by the Product team the license is a CAST standard license. In all the other cases, the author must add a link to a chosen license.|
A space-delimited list of tags and keywords that describe the package. This information is used to help make sure users can find the package using searches.
