After you add an iOS app to App Distribution Portal, you need to publish it to make it visible to the members of its distribution groups. This article describes the process of publishing an iOS app through AppManager and goes through some of the specifics of code-signing iOS apps.
To publish an app, you need to have already added it in the App Distribution Portal and added all necessary information and files to it. If you still have not added an app, go through this article: Adding a New App.
To publish an iOS app:
In the Apps screen, click the app version that you want to publish. AppManager shows the App Details page where you can review the app and check its distribution groups.
Before you publish an iOS app, you might want to check its provisioning profile status and maybe re-sign it. You can do that from the same page. The process of re-signing an iOS app is described in detail in this article: Re-signing iOS Apps.
- Click Publish when you are ready to publish the app.
Check Send push notifications if you want to allow AppManager to send push notifications to all registered devices in the groups, assigned to the published app.
AppManager will send push notifications only to devices that support the app's minimum OS version.
To enable push notifications in the AppManager client app for iOS, you need to upload a push notifications certificate through the iOS settings page in App Distribution Portal.
Check Distribute app by email? if you want to send an email with a link to the app to all eligible users.
In case you want to send out distribution emails later, do not check this option. You can later select the app in the Apps screen and click Resend Email to distribute the app to your users.
