Hi @Sylvia lucy ,
1.Once uploaded extension, your extension ID is fixed and cannot be changed any more.
The ID is derived from the
.pem file that was created the first time you packed the extension in a
.crx file. When you load an extension in "unpacked mode", an ID is automatically generated in an unpredictable way.
2.You're ready to submit your app/extension to the extension Store, refer to the following steps:
1)Create a zip file containing your extension (important:
manifest.json must be at the root, i.e. "directory/manifest.json" is bad, "manifest.json" is good).
- Add the .pem file as
(this is necessary to preserve the extension ID)
- (Add) How to generate a
key.pem! 1.Go to edge://extensions/ and enable Developer mode; 2.Click on "Pack extension...", select your app/extension's directory and confirm; 3.You've got a .crx file and a .pem file. Back up the private key (.pem file).
2)Upload the extension to the Store (without the "key" field in manifest.json will reject any upload that contains a "key" field).
For subsequent updates, "
key.pem" should not be added to the zip file, because doesn't need it anymore.
