Deploying Server Side Extensions

Last Updated: 03/30/2018 Introduced in Version: 2.0
There are 2 ways that additional functionality can be added to the platform through the SDK. 
  • Deploy a dll into the Local module
  • Create and deploy a module
 
DEPLOY A DLL INTO THE ‘LOCAL’ MODULE
 
The Local module is a special module that has the same structure as a deployed module, but it is just a set of directories where custom items are placed to be loaded.
 
servicesdll

To deploy code using this method, compile your class project and copy the compiled dll to  C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Services Manager\modules\Decisions.Local\ServicesDlls, and then restart Service Host Manager service. (If the Dynamic Local Module Loading feature is enabled, a restart might not be necessary, depending on the nature of the deployed code.)

 
CREATE AND DEPLOY A MODULE
A module is a zip file that contains a number of elements (in directories) that represent different ways in which the platform can be extended.  To deploy this zip file, place it into  C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Services Manager\CustomModules.  Now your module can be installed like any other module, at System > Administration > Features.
 
The steps for creating a module can be found here: Building module (advanced)
