After you have finished developing and testing your custom package and localizing any necessary strings or prompts, you can release and publish the package. When you release and publish the package, other users can then use your package in their own Identity Manager environments.
You can publish the packages to a server and have users configure Designer to point to that server for package updates. You can specify a Web server (http://), FTP server (ftp://), or file server, as necessary for your environment. Users can then configure Designer to go to that location to check for package updates.
You can only publish a package to a location on the local system on which you are using Designer.
Only packages that have been built and released can be published.
