Besides the creation of individual transports, there is a second approach to export your data to another system. By releasing your app after you finished your project or along the way for testing purpose.
Every time you create a new application, a transport file will be generated automatically with your app’s name. It is advisable to update this transport during your working process (add every feature you use).
For releasing the app, your transport has to be approved by an Admin in advance. If the approval was given, click on the “Release” button in the UI Designer to export your app. Next, you can add a release note.
|If your release was successful, you can see the current version of your app in the application Overview. Click on the “Show Releases” Icon for an overview of the metadata and a direct download option.|
Add Metadata to the Release
With this action button in the release overview, you will be redirected to the metadata dialog.
Here you can insert additional information like requirements, compatible devices or add screenshots of the application.
The metadata will be displayed in the Marketplace if you upload the app. You can maintain the metadata in German or English.
