App Build Settings
In order to configure your build settings, click on the Settings button of the build menu, right next to the app name and version.
Every build has its own settings, however, some of the definitions are shared by all builds of an app.
App Distribution: Enabled or Disabled. When disabled the app cannot be installed and pending invitations will expire.
Auto-Update - when auto-update is enabled, all the previous installations of this app will be automatically upgraded to this version. The next time a user with an old version opens his app, he will get an 'updating' message and the app will be installed automatically. No email will be sent regarding this update.
Release Notes These release notes will appear in email invitations, landing pages and in the tester dashboard at my.testfairy.com. Release Notes can be set via upload api, manually on upload or in this page.
Tags Tags can be added to each build. They are comma separated text and can contain spaces.
Landing Page - link to the landing page. Click the
Configurebutton to change the landing page for this build.
Recording: Choose whether recording of sessions is
enabled only when WiFi is on. This is global and overrides all other settings.
Max Duration: you can choose a maximum recording duration of 10 min, 1 or 5 hour. When going to background, session will automatically end after 5 minutes the app is in the background.
Collect Logs in background (only in android): this option will enable collecting logs also when the app is in the background. Please note that this option may cause additional battery consumption.
Video settings - Changing video settings can be useful if you wish to decrease network overload:
- Enable / Disable video recording
- Application logcat/logs - collect the app logs from device.
In-App Bug Reporting - when enabled, testers can provide feedback simply by shaking their device and filling a form that pops up. On iOS, screenshot will trigger the same mechanism.
In iOS you will see the details of the build as detected by our service. You can see the certificate type you used to sign the app, as well as more details.
In android you will see build details and the hash of the signing certificate at the bottom.
