The Apps Script code editor has a feature to "Deploy from manifest."
After creating and saving a new deployment version, a link is shown that states:
I can not find any documentation for what that does. I already know about documentation at: https://developers.google.com/gsuite/add-ons/concepts/deployments https://developers.google.com/apps-script/concepts/deployments
I've clicked the link to "Install add-on", and I get a message stating:
But I do not know what happened, or what the consequences are.
It obviously doesn't publish the script as an add-on, because that needs to be done through Google Cloud and the GSuite Marketplace SDK. And in the example shown here, I don't even have a GCP project associated with the Apps Script project.
I don't know if I need to click "Install add-on" in order to use that version in the add-on publishing, or whether it's not needed.
- What does it actually do?
- Is it necessary?
- Is there some benefit to it?
- Is there any documentation explaining what "Install add-on" does?
