Deploying automatically to Google Play
You have the ability to automatically deploy to Google Play — either per build or on a set schedule.
First ensure you have completed the following steps:
If you have already completed the pre-requisite steps, follow along below to automatically deploy to Google Play!
Navigate to the Deployments page on buddybuild and select the Deploy to Google Play tab.
Next, select Connect Your Account.
Authenticate with Google Play by clicking select a file, and locating the Google Private Key (.JSON) that you created and downloaded in the previous step.
Once connected, you now have the option of changing the next versionCode. You can also choose to leave the default value and click Continue.
Next, select the track you want to deploy to, how often you want to deploy to Google Play, and from which branch and variant.
Once you’re done that, select Save Settings.
That’s it! You’re now ready to automatically deploy builds to Google Play.
If you’d prefer to manually deploy builds to Google Play, buddybuild allows you to do that as well!
