Target a different version of the Windows Admin Center SDK

Applies to: Windows Admin Center, Windows Admin Center Preview

Keeping your extension up to date with SDK changes and platform changes is easy. We use NuGet Package Manager tags to organize the release of new features into SDK versions.

There are two SDK versions you can choose from and three which are deprecated:

  • latest – this SDK package aligns with the current GA release of Windows Admin Center and is the most stable
  • experimental – this SDK package contains the most recent changes and functionality, but might be unstable
  • insider – this SDK package has been deprecated, use latest or experimental instead
  • next – this SDK package has been deprecated, use latest or experimental instead
  • legacy – this SDK package has been deprecated, use latest or experimental instead

Targeting SDK version on a new project

When creating a new extension, you can include the --version parameter to target a different version of the SDK:

wac create --company "{!Company Name}" --tool "{!Tool Name}" --version {!version}
Value Explanation Example
{!Company Name} Your company name (with spaces) Contoso Inc
{!Tool Name} Your tool name (with spaces) Manage Foo Works
{!version} SDK Version latest

Here's an example creating a new extension targeting experimental:

wac create --company "Contoso Inc" --tool "Manage Foo Works" --version experimental

Note

We recommend developers building new extensions use the latest SDK version for stability.

Targeting SDK version on an existing project

To modify an existing project to target a different SDK version, modify the following line in package.json:

"@microsoft/windows-admin-center-sdk": "latest",

In this example, replace latest with your desired SDK version, i.e. experimental:

"@microsoft/windows-admin-center-sdk": "experimental",

Then run npm install to update references throughout your project.
