Magnolia 5.7 reached extended end of life on May 31, 2022. Support for this branch is limited, see End-of-life policy. Please note that to cover the extra maintenance effort, this EEoL period is a paid extension in the life of the branch. Customers who opt for the extended maintenance will need a new license key to run future versions of Magnolia 5.7. If you have any questions or to subscribe to the extended maintenance, please get in touch with your local contact at Magnolia.

A module descriptor is a Magnolia-specific file that identifies and defines the module. 

  • For a Magnolia Maven module - the module descriptor is an XML file located at  src/main/resources/META-INF/magnolia/<module-name>.xml.
  • For a Magnolia light module - the module descriptor is a YAML file located at $magnolia-resources.dir/<module-name>/module.yaml.

Please be aware that the YAML-based file does not support all features which are possible with the XML-based module descriptor. For more details please have a closer look at the detail pages.
