Extension Hub

From the Extension Hub dialog, you can do the following tasks:

  • Explore extensions that are available from the IBM® SPSS® Predictive Analytics collection on GitHub. You can select extensions to install now or you can download selected extensions and install them later.
  • Get updated versions of extensions that are already installed on your computer.
  • View details about the extensions that are already installed on your computer.
  • Remove extensions that are installed on your computer.
To download or remove extensions:
  1. From the menus, choose: Extensions > Extension Hub
  2. Select the extensions that you want to download or remove and click OK. All selections that are made on the Explore and Installed tabs are processed when you click OK.

By default, the extensions that are selected for download are downloaded and installed on your computer. From the Settings tab, you can choose to download the selected extensions to a specified location without installing them. You can then install them later by choosing Extensions > Install Local Extension Bundle. For Windows and Mac, you can install an extension by double-clicking the extension bundle file.

  • If you experience problems when connecting to the Extension Hub in the application, you can manually access the Extension Hub on GitHub (https://github.com/IBMPredictiveAnalytics).
  • Extensions are always installed, or downloaded, to your local computer. If you work in distributed analysis mode, then see the topic Installing local extension bundles for further details.
  • For Windows 7 and later, installing an updated version of an existing extension bundle might require running IBM SPSS Statistics with administrator privileges. You can start IBM SPSS Statistics with administrator privileges by right-clicking the icon for IBM SPSS Statistics and choosing Run as administrator. In particular, if you receive an error message that states that one or more extension bundles could not be installed, then try running with administrator privileges.
Note: The license that you agree to when you install an extension can be viewed at any later time by clicking More info... for the extension on the Installed tab.
