The instructions on this page will explain how feature repositories can be added to a product and managed using the management console. All the features that are built into WSO2 products are available in the WSO2 Feature Repository. Therefore, if a specific feature is not installed in your product, you can install it using the WSO2 feature repository. Alternatively, if you have developed features, you can add them to the product by creating a new feature repository.

You can log in to the product's management console and click Features in the Configure menu as shown below.
Feature management

The Repository Management tab allows you to view or modify feature management settings.
