The App Dashboard¶
The App Dashboard shows detailed information about an app, such as the API Keys required to authenticate that app, as well as the status of the features that have been enabled for that app. From here you can also access the files and links for that app.
Enabling features for Apps¶
Starting a 30 day free trial¶
Kumulos features are free to use on up to 25 test devices for up to 30 days while your app is in development. To trial a feature for an app, click the
Start button on the app dashboard next to the required feature.
You will now see some more information about that feature.
If you wish to continue click
Get Started or
Enable. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to begin a 30 day free trial.
Yes, proceed when prompted. The setup process for that feature will now start. For further details, refer to the documentation for that feature. For example Analytics.
Adding features to your subscription¶
When trialling features, the app dashboard will show you how many days of your trial you have left.
To add a feature to your subscription, click
Buy. You will be asked to confirm that you wish to add the feature to your subscription.
Yes, proceed when prompted. If this is the first feature you have bought, you will need to create a billing subscription by adding payment card details.
Launching your App¶
Kumulos features are free to use on up to 25 test devices for up to 30 days while your app is in development. After this, you must either switch features off or add features to your subscription to remove these device and time-based limits (and also allow you to create a staging environment for your app).
This should be done prior to store submission (so that your app is not rejected due to exceeding device or time-based usage limits during the approval process).
If this is the first feature you have bought, you will need to create a billing subscription by adding payment card details.
Creating a staging environment¶
If you have enabled and bought the App Build Mobile Backend-as-a-Service feature, it can be useful to create complete copies of the app so that bugs can be fixed on a test version, or new features can be added in a staging version of an existing app. This can be accomplished for any app for which the App Build Mobile Backend-as-a-Service feature has been bought.
While viewing the app from the client or app dashboard use the context action and select "Copy"
The create environment dialog will appear, prompting for a name for the new copy of the app. The suggested title will append '_staging' to the current app name. Click 'Submit' to start the copy process.
Once the process has completed the dialog will provide feedback and a link to the newly created app, simply click the button to open its dashboard.
If you want to promote any changes to API Methods from a staging environment to your live app, then please contact support who will be happy to do this for you.
