Summary: This section provides information about the tags that can be defined in the Extension description file.

Introduction

When defining your .nuspec description file for your custom extension, it is possible to define a set of tags to help identify, for example, what your extension does, what release of CAST AIP it is compatible with etc.

You are free to add any tag you wish to help describe your extension, however, CAST requires that you use at least one tag from a set of mandatory categories described below.

Where are tags defined?

The tags are defined within the <tags> element:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="utf-8"?>
