Yellowfin’s plug-in loader will accept standard JAR files, however any dependencies will need to be loaded individually into the same plug-in group.

An alternative to loading all JAR files individually is to create a YFP package. A YFP package is just a standard zip file renamed with a “.yfp” extension. This will allow the user to load all dependencies with a single file upload into Yellowfin.

When creating a YFP package all JAR files should be placed in the root of the YFP zip file. Only external dependencies should be included in the YFP file. Do not include Yellowfin build dependencies like i4-mi.jar.



Upload to Yellowfin

Once you have created your Custom Formatter package, upload it to Yellowfin using the Plugin Manager. Click here to learn more about this.
