Package Management

The OPM (OTOBO Package Manager) is a mechanism to distribute software packages for the OTOBO framework via HTTP, FTP or file upload.

For example, the OTOBO project offers OTOBO modules like a calendar, a file manager or web mail in OTOBO packages via online repositories on our FTP servers. The packages can be managed (install, upgrade and uninstall) via the admin interface.

Package Distribution

If you want to create an OPM online repository, just tell the OTOBO framework where the location is by activating the system configuration setting Package::RepositoryList and adding the new location there. Then you will have a new select option in the package manager.

In your repository, create an index file for your OPM packages. OTOBO just reads this index file and knows what packages are available.

shell> bin/ Dev::Package::RepositoryIndex /path/to/repository/ > /path/to/repository/otobo.xml

Package Commands

You can use the following OPM commands over the admin interface or over bin/ to manage admin jobs for OPM packages.
