Adding an App¶
To add a new App to the console click the primary action button while viewing a client.
Fill in the name of the App, and optionally, add a brief description or upload an icon. Click "Save".
You will now be redirected to the dashboard for that app.
Editing an App¶
From the Client dashboard, use the context action on the App card you wish to edit, select "Edit"
Make any edits you wish, then click "Save" to return to the Client dashboard.
Deleting an App¶
To delete an App, from the Client dashboard use the context action on the App card you wish to delete, select "Delete"
You will be prompted to confirm the deletion.
After deletion the App will be removed from the console.
Moving an App to another Client¶
To move an App to another Client, simply edit the App and select a new Client from the dropdown, click "Save" to confirm.
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¶
To enable a feature for an app, click the "Start" button on the app dashboard for the required feature.
This will then start the setup process for that feature. For further details, refer to the documentation for that feature. For example App Store Optimization.
Launching your App¶
Kumulos features are free to use on up to 25 test devices for 30 days (or 60 days for the App Build feature) while your app is in development. After this, or when you are ready to submit your app to the store, you should switch your app into production mode 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).
The first time you are ready to switch an app into production, you must create a new billing subscription.
Creating a staging environment¶
After an app is in production 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 on any App that is currently in production.
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.
