The administration plug-in helps to organise the extension folder: Mainly to create and maintain protocols, error definitions, but also to upload new versions to the server (the latter functionality is currently limited to Mac OS X).

The tools window is opened:

The administration plug-in manages the application support folder. The tool allows the maintenance and creation of protocols (1), the definition of openBEB errors (2) and the semiautomatic upload of the application support folder to the server (3). Protocols are composed of three files: an initialization file (4), a collection protocol (5) and  a data-set protocol (6). The latter two are assembled from a library of controlled vocabulary items (7), which is shared between all protocols. An entry from the controlled vocabulary can be changed, and these changes can be automatically transferred to existing protocols (8).
