[Enhancement] Plugin Registration Tool - Display assemblies in alphabetical order RRS feed

  • Question

  • I'm not sure where feature requests go for SDK tools so here goes. :)

    REQUEST:  Please update pluginregistrationtool.exe to display registered assemblies in alphabetical order by assembly name or include a sorting mechanism for the user. 

    The following SDK versions display the unsorted lists: 7.1.0, 7.1.1, 8.0.0, 8.0.1

    REASONING:  The current application does not display assemblies in any logical order.  This makes finding a known assembly extremely challenging when working with systems with several dozen assemblies.  The search feature is not sufficient because developers may be debugging an issue on an unfamiliar system and scanning the list for assemblies with descriptive names may be a first step to identifying code to investigate. 

    Assemblies which follow a naming convention should be grouped together logically so a developer can easily identify related processes. 

    ActivityFeeds.Plugins

    ActivityFeeds.Filtering.Plugins

    Contoso.Crm.AccountManagement.Plugins

    Contoso.Crm.InvoiceManagement.Plugins

    Contoso.Crm.InvoiceManagement.Workflows

    Thanks!
