When you are ready to deliver an update for your app, you can create and publish an AppManager LiveSync update.

When you choose to publish an AppManager LiveSync update, AppBuilder uploads your modified files in the cloud without re-building the application package. After you publish the update, your end users will receive an update notification on their devices when they re-launch or resume from background the installed AppManager LiveSync-enabled app. If end users decide to skip the update, the next time they launch the app, the update prompt appears again.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that you have published an AppManager LiveSync-enabled version of your app. Only users who have installed the AppManager LiveSync-enabled version will be able to receive AppManager LiveSync updates.
  • Verify that your subscription provides AppManager LiveSync.
