Installation

The widgets are standard polarion extensions,  you need to follow a standard Polarion procedure to install the extensions.


PREREQUISITE. Download the distribution  from https://gantt.nextedy.com/download/ and unpack it. (You will find the installation instructions there as well).


  1. Unpack / Unzip the downloaded nextedy_gantt.zip

  2. Copy `com.nextedy.polarion.gantt` folder into `POLARION_INSTALL_LOCATION/polarion/extension` folder.

  3. If you already have production license, please copy the `gantt_lic.json` file to `[POLARION_INSTALL]/polarion/license`

  4. Delete `[POLARION_INSTALL]/data/workspace/.config`
    Make sure you perform this step also when updating the Nextedy plugins. .config does not hold any other data that caches about the installed plugins, it does NOT make polarion slower in any way as well. This step is actually recommended by Polarion support.

  5. Restart Polarion server

  4. And follow the instructions there
