Hi there,

Is there a way to control the usage/download of RM Extensions in client RM Studios from RM Server? As an administrator, I would like to only allow approved Extensions to be downloaded by Studio users.

    as Studio is not connecting to a Server by default, the user could always work locally and install extensions from the Marketplace or manually. So Server is the wrong place to control this.

    If you want to have this kind of control over Studio user behaviour, you'll have to do it on the individual desktop.

    There is indeed a way to enforce this as an administrator, however as Balazs said, you need to enforce it on the individual client machines.
    The so-called Administration Configuration allows admins to control in detail what individual Studio users can do and what they cannot do. See our docs page on this here: https://docs.rapidminer.com/latest/studio/administration/

    You have three ways of enforcing things:
    • Environment variable
    • A file in the installation folder of RapidMiner Studio (obviously users should not be able to write/delete that file)
    • A registry entry (for Windows)
    You have quite an extensive list of things you can control: https://docs.rapidminer.com/latest/studio/administration/settings/
    Also in that list is a whitelist for extensions: https://docs.rapidminer.com/latest/studio/administration/settings/extensions.html
