Is it possible to include some common information or information about the respective point products extension, Like What is Extension , Why we are using extension. Pros and cons. etc ?

I am trying to find the information but no luck:

Everywhere it is mentioned that how to install/check-in from Master Repository and etc. etc. 

Everyone from support or on community will say and we also know that the extension is most important part for any product as the policies belongs to them and many more.

Can someone please have a look into this and add some content about the extensions ?

I am thinking if someone start using ePO and he is new or not knowing much about it then it will be bit tight situation for the Organization and for the candidate too.

If it's there and I am missing then please guide me.

I hope someone will consider it.

Re: Extension

I am not totally clear on what you are asking, but if you want the explanation of what extensions are vs packages, here is a quick rundown.

Extensions are basically the back-end management of the point products.  When you check in a product extension, it adds client tasks (if relevant), policies, queries and other supportability info on managing the point product.  That is entirely a server side function.

The packages are the install packages that get installed on the clients.  The extensions that manage the products should be the same or higher version than the installed version on the client to ensure management compatibility.  Packages are checked into the master repository whereas extensions are checked in under software, extensions.
