Hi There,


As i known that rm 8.0 server could implement distrubuted environment by assigning job agents accross instances. And there is also an agent to operate default queue named "agent-bundled" if you don't assign tasks to other job agents.

However, recently, i tried to install extensions for RM server following this instruction, after restart RM server, i found new extensions appear on web UI which is great. (Operator Toolbox & Text Processing)

But when i execute process on server using default queue, got an error said can't find "SMOTE UPSAMPLE" operator which is from "Operator Toolbox".

I have to manually put those extension into C:\RapidMinerServer\job-agent\extensions to be able to load those extensions when running default queue, seems like default queue won't refer to this parameter "com.rapidanalytics.plugindir" in system settings as below:

 What can i do if i want default job agent to take "com.rapidanalytics.plugdir" this parameter, otherwise i have to do it twice when adding new extensions?


Any suggestion would be appreciated.

    Hi @RayJhong,


    You can set the parameter

    jobagent.container.extensionsDir = <path-to-your-RapidMiner-Server-extensions-folder>

    in the .../job-agent/config/ file.


    This should solve the issue. We are aware of this and put it on our list.


    Best regards,
