How to change a marketplace module into a regular one?

I have an app containing modules marked as marketplace modules (blue icon). One of these modules i want to change into a regular module (gray icon). What is the best way to do this?

Use the mpr tool found in de modeler folder of Studio Pro to remove the Marketplace metadata from the module. Just load your app into the tool and select the module. You will not receive updates from the marketplace after this, so use with care. 





You can download the module from the marketplace website (instead of from within Studio Pro).  Then, you can import the module from the downloaded file and it should appear as a standard module.


I just re-tested this in 9.12.1 and it still works. 

  1. Download the .mpk file through the Marketplace website.
  2. In Studio Pro, right click in the app explorer below all you modules and select import module package.
  3. Select the .mpk file you downloaded.



If the reason you want to do this is so you can customize a module, I would caution against this.  It would better to generate separate extension module that contains all you customizations.  That way you can easily update the marketplace module as needed and not worry about losing customizations.
