How to Define a Manifest

How to Define a Manifest

The information in this topic applies only to System Center 2012 SP1.

The manifest is used by the Virtual Machine Manager (VMM) console to determine what your add-in can do. It contains several pieces of basic information that identify the add-in, and then it defines all the components the add-in will supply to the console. For more information about manifests, see Manifests.

To create the initial manifest

  1. Create a new XML document named manifest.xml.

  2. Create the root XML node named ConsoleAddIn

  3. Add an attribute named Name to the root XML node and set the value to the name of your add-in.

  4. Add an attribute named Version to the root XML node and set the value to the version of your add-in. For example, the value of 1.0.0.0.

  5. Add an attribute named Author to the root XML node and set the value to the name of the add-in author.

  6. Add an attribute named Description to the root XML node and set the value to the a short and descript description of the add-in.

  7. Add an attribute named FolderName to the root XML node. Set the value of this attribute to a folder name that your add-in will be installed to. This must be unique across all add-ins installed in the console.

  8. Add an attribute named TrustLevel to the root XML node and set the value to Full.
