Versioning your app builds

When loading an app to Testfairy the service decodes the version number and name of the build and displays it in the dashboard.

Android

These are the two fields identifying a build:

  • versionCode - A positive integer used as an internal version number.
  • versionName — A string used as the version number shown to users.

These fields will be translated and displayed in the following fields on the TestFairy Dashboard:

  • Version = versionName
  • Version code = versionCode - displayed in (brackets) after the version field.

iOS:

These are 2 fields for identifying the app:

  • Bundle version - a string composed of one to three period-separated integers. Can only contain numeric characters (0-9) and periods.
  • Bundle versions string, short - a string.

These fields will be translated and displayed in the following fields on the TestFairy Dashboard:

  • Version = Bundle versions string, short
  • Version code = Bundle version - displayed in (brackets) after the version field.

For more information on app versioning see documentation for android versioning here, and for iOS versioning here.
