Tutorial 2 - ExtensionProfile

Tutorial 2 - ExtensionProfile

Introduction

In this tutorial, you will study a new resource with a linking and reading strategy. You will see how data can be extracted from the out-of-the-box profiles representation and inserted into the ExtendedProfile's representation. This method can be used to customize the output of any Cortex API resource.

Warning: Before you begin

Make sure your development environment has been properly set up as described in Setting up your Developer Environment.
