Update Your Application

If your changes affect the content of your application, you can update your application at any time and instantly. If you use new PandaSuite functionalities or if you fix a bug, it is necessary to export a new file of your application (IPA, APK, EXE or DMG).

Update Content

Development and Production

When you create new project, this is a development version. When you decide to publish your project, this version is duplicated and the new one is the production version. Both versions co-exist at the same time. The production version is distributed.

If you want to edit your project, you must manually replace the production version by the new development version: this is the update.

How to update

Modify your project from PandaSuite Studio and save. 
Go to Publishing > Your app > Content Management
In the dashboard, the status {x} updated indicates that modifications have been made to your project. 
Click the Move to Prod button and validate the update.

 Note: Automatically, your content is updated wherever your application is available. Users who have already downloaded it are notified by an informative banner. An Internet connection is required to download this new version.

Add/Remove a project

Go to Publishing > Your app > Content Management

Click on the Add / Remove Project button.

Remove the project you want to delete from the list. Add the new project.

In the table, click on the Move to prod button and validate the update.

Export new file

If you use new PandaSuite functionalities or if you fix a bug, it is necessary to export a new file from your application (IPA, APK, EXE or DMG).
Follow the steps to update your content. 
Go to the iOS/Android or Windows/Mac tab and export a new file. The fields are already pre-filled but remember to increment the version and build number before generating your files.
If your app is directly downloaded by users (without app store), send them the link to the new version.

Submit New Version To App Store

In the case of a mobile application published on the App Store and Google Play, if you add new features or bug fixes to your application, you must generate and submit a new API or APK. 

On the Apple App Store

To submit a new API, you must upload it using Application Transporter and create a new version on App Store Connect.

Upload to Application Transporter

Open Application Transporter (instead of Application Loader, this is the MacOS software that allows you to upload your IPA files to App Store Connect)

Choose Create an app or drag and drop your API file directly.

Once your file has been uploaded into the interface, click Deliver

Create New Version (App Store Connect)

Open App Store Connect and select your app

Create a new version by clicking on +VERSION OR PLATFORM below the list and choose iOS.

Enter the version number you specified when generating the new IPA

Fill in the description paragraph: What's new in this version. This is what will appear in the App Store with the announcement of the availability of this new version.

In the Build section, choose the build you have just uploaded via Application TransporterFinalize the procedure
