Version 3

    Jive Daily for iOS and Jive Daily for Android can be made compatible with BlackBerry (formally Good) by using Appdome. To use Jive Daily with Appdome, you should publish the Daily app to Appdome App Library, and then download and test the resulting app build.

    Prerequisites

    • You need the .ipa package for iOS or the .apk package for Android. You can download the latest binaries from the Jive Mobile Release Binaries space.
    • For Android apps, you need a valid signing certificate stored in the Android development environment and the following information:
      • Keystore: This should be the same keystore file used to sign your Android app when distributing it via Google Play.
      • Keystore Password: The password used to unlock your keystore.
      • Key Alias: The name you assigned to your keystore.
      • Key Password: This is the specific password defined for your signing key.
    • For iOS apps, you need a valid signing certificate stored in the iOS development environment and the following information:
      • P12 Certificate File: A P12 certificate file is a certificate and private key concatenated into a single file, protected by a password.
      • P12 Certificate Password: The password used to unlock your P12 certificate file.
      • Provisioning Profile: A Provisioning Profile allows you to install apps onto your iOS device and includes the signing certificates, a list of supported device identifiers, entitlements, and an App ID.

    Publishing the Daily App on Appdome

    As an example, we are adding Jive Daily 9.0.5 for iOS to Appdome.

    1. Log in to Appdome.
    2. Go to the Dashboard (Profile > Fusion).
    3. Add the app. Click Add App, then browse for the binary or drag it to the Add New App Binary Here and wait while the app file is uploaded.

    4. Publish the new version to your Appdome App Library. Tap the Publish icon under the app list to open the Publish to Appdome App Library wizard.
    5. On the App Details step, add a description, and then click Next.
      You can copy and paste from the previous build version description.
    6. On the Release Notes step, add release notes by uploading a file with the release notes, and then click Next.
    7. On the App Configuration step, select the App Bundle checkbox, and then click Publish.

    The new build version is published.
