metadata and artifact files getting removed after installing extensions

#1

Hi Team,

When we install any KNIME extensions, is there a chance that the below files gets removed?

knime/p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine/profileRegistry/KNIMEProfile.profile/.data/.settings/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.metadata.repository.prefs
knime/p2/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.engine/profileRegistry/KNIMEProfile.profile/.data/.settings/org.eclipse.equinox.p2.artifact.repository.prefs

We see these files sometimes missing (not always) after we install our Schrodinger extensions in KNIME using org.eclipse.equinox.p2.director.

Any insights are helpful.

Thanks
Ravikiran

Hm… tricky.

There is some code that will make sure the standard KNIME update sites are registered in the update site manager. I think the code is run when you bump the version of org.knime.product. The relevant code is here.

It should not affect other pre-registered update sites but may worth a try.
