Installable with the Extension Manager


Since XWiki 9.8, the Notifications Application is replacing the old Watchlist Application. In order to not lose all the preferences of the Watchlist, this module provides a bridge that make them appear as preferences of the Notification Application.

Prerequisites & Installation Instructions

We recommend using the Extension Manager to install this extension (Make sure that the text "Installable with the Extension Manager" is displayed at the top right location on this page to know if this extension can be installed with the Extension Manager). Note that installing Extensions when being offline is currently not supported and you'd need to use some complex manual method.

You can also use the manual method which involves dropping the JAR file and all its dependencies into the WEB-INF/lib folder and restarting XWiki.
