Product store

The product store and this documentation need to be rewritten, as of December 2017

The product store (type Product Store) provides a way of offering products to users. There is generally one product store per account authority, but there is no built-in restriction on product stores. The product store does not perform the install, but does the following:

  • It shows an icon view of available and installed products.
  • Using Product Display Script), it shows details of current subscriptions and of available products, and provides management functions.
  • It allows the user to see hidden products that they have installed, and to open products not listed in the store.
  • It handles the situation when the user is not signed on but has requested to install a product.

The actual installation process is handled by executing the user's account node (type Account), using the Install Method, which simply executes the Product Install Script.
