Mediakit - Install and Setup

Modified on Tue, 14 Apr 2020 at 10:44 AM


The Nextedy MEDIAKIT is standard polarion extension,  you need to follow a standard Polarion procedure to install the extensions.

PREREQUISITE. Download the distribution from and unpack it. (You will find the installation instructions there as well).

  1. Unpack / Unzip the downloaded

  2. Copy `` folder into `POLARION_INSTALL_LOCATION/polarion/extension` folder.

  3. If you already have production license, please copy the `mediakit_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

Setup  MediaKit Panel

The Nextedy MEDIAKIT brings a Work item for  extension:

  1. Open Polarion  Administration > Work Items > Form configuration:
  2. Edit the layout for a selected work item type:
  3. Add a media kit extension to the configuration
    <extension id="MediaFormExtension" label="Media Attachments"/>
  4. You can also use  parameters height (400) and mode (grid|table)
    <extension id="MediaFormExtension" label="Media Attachments" mode="table" height="300" />
