The service provides access to the accounts associated with an installed instance of the provider's content management system software. It does not perform actual content management functions within the instance, but it allows plug-ins working within that instance to interact with the provider's own capabilities. This function allows the Extend registry of working plug-ins to support them in completing their own tasks.
API methods support status checks for an applications registry listing and lookups or updates to registered plug-in filenames. Returned data provide operating parameters for the plug-in such as the CMS software version for which the plug-in was created and against which it has been tested.
