Overview

In addition to the Modules available for download within the core product, additional Modules are available from the Decisions GitHub page.

Each Module's repository contains a description of version availability and whether or not a module is considered experimental.

Installing the Module via Github causes the module's zip file to be added to the database so that the module can be restored on cluster nodes in a clustered environment.



Github Modules Available

The following Github modules are compatible for v8 instances:


Example

The following example will demonstrate how to add a module from the Decisions GitHub into the platform.

  1. Go to the GitHub Modules page and click on the desired module.

  2. Click Releases.

  3. Scroll down to the closest version installed, and select the zip file closest to download it.


  4. Copy the downloaded ZIP file to C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Server\CustomModules.

  5. Log into Decisions and navigate to System > Administration > Features. The module should automatically be installed. Otherwise, select INSTALL.

    Installing the module also adds the module to the C:\Program Files\Decisions\Decisions Server\modules. The Module is now available for use.



Updating Github Modules

Any modules saved in the CustomModules folder filepath including those found on Github may need further configuration to update.

For further steps, refer to the Updating Custom Modules article.
