Use the installCmd and unInstallCmd arguments to specify install and uninstall commands. If you do not specify install or uninstall commands, the default install or uninstall commands for the specified type of custom software package will be used.

If the installation/uninstallation procedure for the software package requires a support file, you must include a parameter that references the support file in the install/uninstall command. You must include this parameter in the paramSupportNameList argument, and specify the location of the support file that this parameter references in the supportFileList argument.

If the installation/uninstallation procedure requires more than one support file, you can use a comma separated string in both the paramSupportNameList argument and the supportFileList argument. Make sure that the order of the parameters in paramSupportNameList corresponds to the order of support file locations in supportFileList.

Use the urlTypeName argument to indicate the name of the deployable URL type. urlTypeName can be one of the following:
