Extensions provide a simplified interface to perform automated workflows in AEDT. In AEDT, you can use the Extension Manager to add or remove extensions. For more information, see Extension Manager.

Extensions are generally tool-specific and are therefore only accessible given the appropriate context. The following sections provide further clarification.

You can launch extensions in standalone mode from the console or a Python script.
