What is the proper format of the extension URL? I wasn't able to find any docs about this REST endpoint.

We are developing custom hardware and a binding to go with it (not for the public just yet). We would like a way to "deploy" this binding automatically or programmatically to our ESH instances. Currently, we copy and paste the JAR file to the `addons` directory.

Using the REST endpoint /extensions/url/{url}/install seemed like a good solution for this. We have hosted our JAR file on Amazon S3 and we would like to programatically download / install the binding.

I tried the following

but it gives the error response
  "error": {
    "message": "The given URL is malformed or not valid.",
    "http-code": 400

I looked through the [source files]( but didn't find anything jumping out at me regarding URL format.

Any ideas? Is there a better way to distribute our binding file?

the URL has to be an Eclipse Marketplace URL pointing to a published extension. The REST endpoint is used by PaperUI to allow drag-n-drop from the Eclipse Marketplace. Custom jars are not supported.
