The Package Manager configuration allows you to manage the packages of Tizen Studio. With the Package Manager configuration, you can change the options for the package repository for the main and extension SDK, as well as the proxy settings to access the package repository. If you want to configure the Package Manager in the command line interface, see Updating with the CLI Package Manager.
You can set the configuration for installing or updating Tizen Studio using one of the following methods. Before changing the package repository, note that the installed packages may be removed automatically, and you may need to reinstall the packages from the changed repository.
The package repository is a server which stores all the packages that you are using or will use in Tizen Studio. Using the Package Manager, you can install or update packages from that repository. Rather than providing a single repository for the main SDK, several CDNs (Content Delivery Networks) are offered around the globe for your convenience. You can select the nearest package repository to install or update packages more quickly.

To set the package repository:
If you switch off the Auto Update option, you can select an earlier snapshot than the snapshot you are currently using. Be careful when doing this, since the update can cause entire packages to be removed to guarantee system integrity.
To install or update packages with the SDK image:
Enter the full path of the SDK image file in the Package Repository box, or click next to the combo box to open the file browser.
In the file browser, select the SDK image file, and click OK. When you select the image file, the image’s origin repository information is displayed below the combo box.
Click OK to confirm your setting.
If you install or update packages using an image file, the SDK image’s origin repository URL or distribution ID can be different than the current packages’ URL or distribution ID. Be careful when doing this, since the installation or update can cause entire packages to be removed to guarantee system integrity.
izen Studio supports extension packages from the extension repositories, which are developed and managed by external developers and companies. To configure the extension SDK, you must unfold the configuration panel by clicking Extension SDK at the bottom of the dialog box. To return to the package repository configuration, click Extension SDK to fold the extension SDK panel, or scroll up.
