Limit for number of plugins with SDL deployment

Wed Dec 20, 2017 9:16 pm

Hi. Is there a known limit to the number of oXygen plugins that can be deployed with a centrally controlled system like SDL Knowledge Center? My group would like to take advantage of a number of authoring optimization features in oXygen and DITA using plugins and extending the DITA framework.

Hi Jason,

I'm not sure if I understand the question. Oxygen does not have a limit for the plugins or frameworks which can be installed in it.
The installed plugins may sometimes not play nice with each other, for example one plugin may try to remove all entries from the contextual menu and another may try to add new items to it.
Plugins and frameworks can indeed be packed as add-ons and placed on an HTTP(s) server from which Oxygen can download and install them using it's add-on management support. Again there is no limit to the amount of add-ons which can be placed on a server.

Thank you, Radu. The answer in your response is what I expected. I was told that "oXygen only allows one plugin" but that didn't sound right and I found nothing in your documentation stating a limit. I just wanted to confirm that with you. I'll double-check with SDL that their extension will play nice with other extensions or plugins.

Hi,

The only one limitation is with framework customizations. If SDL customized the "DITA" framework and named the customization "DITA-SDL" and you customized the "DITA" framework and named it "DITA-Custom", only one of those frameworks will be used when an XML document is opened in Oxygen, so framework configurations are not additive, the first one which matches the XML using its association rules wins.
You can also extend a framework configuration from another but you cannot extend an extension.
