This document provides some tips on options installation in Service Desk Conventional Configuration. We will take an example of option mail_show_to_cc_list installed via Options Manager, but doesn't take effect.

This option mail_show_to_cc_list will add a Cc List Recipients to be visible on the email.   User installs the option mail_show_to_cc_list option. But, they don't see Cc field on the Manual Notify form (nf.htmpl). 

In below screen shot it shows that there is no Cc field on Manual Notify form.

To resolve the problem check the following:

1)Install options only on primary server. Never install on secondary via User Interface. It would not get installed status for the option.

2)After the option have status installed, check $NX_ROOT\NX.env file to see if variable existing in primary server. The variable would be  @NX_MAIL_SHOW_TO_CC_LIST=Yes 

2a)If you have secondary server(s), check $NX_ROOT\NX.env file to see if the variable exists.  If it doesn't you may need to manually copy the @NX variable/line from primary server $NX_ROOT\NX.env file to secondary server $NX_ROOT\NX.env file.

3)Restart Service Desk services. 

4)To avoid losing changes when you execute the pdm_configure command, copy the variable @NX_MAIL_SHOW_TO_CC_LIST=Yes  in NX.env_nt.tpl (located in the $NX_ROOT\pdmconf directory) file.
