Introduction

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

Things to be aware of before blacklisting an extension:

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.
