Upgrading a Mobile App in App Controller

Oct 20, 2015

If a new version of a mobile app becomes available, you can upload the new version to App Controller. When you receive the updated app, disable the app in App Controller and then upgrade the app by clicking the upgrade icon in the app dialog box.

To upgrade a mobile app

  1. In the management console, click the Apps & Docs tab.
  2. In the navigation pane, select Android Apps or iOS Apps.
  3. In the right pane, click the mobile app and then in the dialog box, click the green disable button. When you click the button, App Controller disables the app and the button turns gray.
  4. Click the mobile app and then in the dialog box, click the upgrade icon.
  5. In the Upgrade Mobile App dialog box, under Select an MDX or APK file to upload, click Browse.
  6. Navigate to the app on your computer, click Open and then click Next. The app uploads to App Controller.

When App Controller is finished, the Mobile App Details dialog box opens and allows you to configure details and policy settings for the app. These settings are the same as the settings you configure when you upload the app for the first time. After you configure and save the settings, click the mobile app and then click the gray enable button. App Controller enables the app and users receive a message to upgrade the app on their device.
