Re: [p2-dev] Can we have p2 category classifications in installed features

Your assessment is correct, the category IUs do not find their way into the profile.

You can try to install a category IU but this may cause all the categorized entries to be installed. This would happen if the requirements from the category to the categorized element was “greedy”. You can try changing the category requirements to be non greedy but I’m not sure if this would address the issue.


Finally even if the categories are installed in the profile, they will most likely not show up in the p2 UI.

Hi Devs,

We use P2 Category publisher tool to categorize our features in p2-repo. But when we install the features, the categorization is not viewed in the list of installed features because category type IUs don't get installed at provisioning phase. Can we install category type features just as feature.group type IUs? Can we maintain the categorization of features in our installed features just like in p2-repo?
Appreciate your view on this.
