The extension pack is a collection of extensions that support creating and deploying various IMaaS (Information Management as a Service) configuration models directly from within Microsoft Visual Studio Code. 

Several of the benefits of using the IMaaS tools for VS Code include:

  • Easily create new apps on top of IMaaS APIs or extend out-of-the-box applications
  • GUI components incorporating no-code & low-code modelers

  • Comprehensive tutorial for getting started
  • Easily report issues to get help from the OpenText Developer Community
