Disabling and removing App repositories

You can turn off IGB access to a repository by unchecking the Enabled box. This action removes its Apps from the list of available Apps in the IGB App Manager. To delete a repository, click to select it in the list of repositories and click the Remove button.

Refreshing a repository 

When IGB starts, it contacts each enabled App repository and requests its list of Apps. The highest version of each App that IGB is compatible with is then listed in the App Manager. However, if a higher version of an App is released from one of these repositories when IGB is already running, IGB will not show it. If this occurs, refresh the App repository to force IGB to refresh its lists of available Apps from that repository.
