Installing Builds from buddybuild
As a tester or beta user, installing builds and submitting feedback is now easier than ever with buddybuild.
Typically, your App’s developers will send you an email containing the build they would like your valuable feedback on. Open this email and click on the 'Install' button.
If this is your first time installing builds from buddybuild, you’ll need to follow a short registration process.
Simply tap on the 'Start Registration' button and then install the profile. buddybuild uses this registration to identify who sent feedback on builds.
Download and Install Build
If you’ve already registered, you can download your app right away. Simply hit the 'Download' button and then tap 'Install' to install the build.
That’s it! Open your App from the home screen. Next, let’s leave feedback for your developers!
Enterprise organizations need to be trusted before their apps can be run. If you hit this error when opening your app, open up your settings and trust the organization’s profile before launching the app.
Install the latest successful build from a specific branch
As a tester, you may want to test a specific branch. For example, you want to make sure that you’re always running the latest version available on your "staging" branch. To achieve this you can create an install URL which looks like this:
:platform — the platform of your app. Its value can be "ios" or "android"
:app_id — the identifier of your app. You can find it in your browser’s search bar when you are viewing your app in the buddybuild dashboard.
:branch — the name of the branch that you want to test. For example "master", "develop" or "staging"
:scheme — (Optional) - the scheme to install. This is useful if your branch is building multiple schemes.
