Publishing Add-on


(Ali Usman Net) #1

Hi, I want to publish an add-on but initially, I want to publish it as “On my own” option, but I would like to know if it is possible to change it to “this site” (Mozilla Add-ons site) at the later stage?

[ Would like to use “On my own” option to distribute it to tester etc ]

Cheers

You can always upload a listed version. The important bit is that the version you distribute on your own does not update automatically to anything, especially not the listed version.

There’s some information about distribution here: https://developer.mozilla.org/en-US/docs/Mozilla/Add-ons/Distribution

If you want the self-distributed “channel” to update, you’ll need to set an update URL in the manifest. If you don’t set an update URL, it will check for updates on AMO. So, whenever an AMO-listed version is available (with a higher version number), the self-distributed version will update to the listed channel and stay there.
