  1. Add an open square bracket ([) character to top of the file and a closed square bracket (]) character to the bottom of the file.  The plugin entries should be listed between these characters.
  2.  In the public extension.json file, search for the plugin monitor(s) that you want to include in your local extension.json file.  Each plugin section is encompassed by curly brackets ({ and }).
  3.  When copying plugin entries from the public extension.json file to your internal copy, ensure that the very last plugin entry does not have a trailing comma character (,) after the closing curly bracket.  The comma is used to separate plugin entries in the extension.json file.
  4.  For each plugin entry in your local extension.json file, change the git_file_target field from the public location to http://uptimehost:9999/PluginRepo/plugin.zip.  If you have an alternate plugin zip file storage location that is accessible by the up.time Monitoring Station, modify the link accordingly.
  5.  The icon_url field or grid_url_target fields should be left as is.

After creating your local extension.json file, place it in the <uptime_dir>\GUI directory (or another web location that the up.time Monitoring Station server can access).  If using <uptime_dir>\GUI, be sure that no other files are modified; otherwise, the up.time web UI may not work properly.  The web location of <uptime_dir>\GUI\extension.json will be http://uptimehost:9999/extension.json. 

Download Plugins

  1. Create the PluginRepo directory in <uptime_dir>\GUI on the up.time Monitoring Station server, where the plugin zip files will reside (or in another web location that the up.time Monitoring Station server can access).
  2. On a system that does have access to the internet (e.g. your desktop), for each plugin entry listed in your local extension.json file, browse to the grid_url_target address from the public extension.json file to download the plugin zip file
  3. Place these zip files in the <uptime_dir>\GUI\PluginRepo directory.  These zip files will now be accessible from http://uptimehost:9999/PluginRepo/plugin.zip, which should be the same address as the grid_url_target entry in your local extension.json file.
