You can update release notes:

  • During upload
  • In build settings
  • Via Upload API
  • Using Jenkins

During Upload

When uploading a new app or version on the dashboard, after the app is uploaded, enter the release notes on the last screen.

In Build Settings

After an app or new build is uploaded, open the build settings and, under App Distribution, modify the release notes.

TestFairy Release Notes

Via Upload API

The recommended way to upload apps is to use the upload API (see Upload API for more information).

To add release notes, use the comment field.
For example:

curl \
    -F api_key='your_api_key' \
    -F file=@sample.apk \
    -F symbols_file=@sample_mapping.txt \
    -F testers_groups='friends,beta' \
    -F notify='on'\
  -F comment='Put Release Notes Here'

Using Jenkins

By default, the Jenkins plugin (see TestFairy) uses the comments that included in every commit, in a pretty standard way. To add your own release notes, create a text file in the following location:


The content of this file will override the default changelog.

Stylizing Release Notes

Builds can include Markdown in the release notes and in the app description that appears in email invitations, on landing pages, and in the testers dashboard tooltips.
