This article gives an overview of the key components of Fusing an app with Appaloosa. Appaloosa helps the mobile end digital team build, test and deploy their mobile apps with its simple and secure enterprise App Store. Customers can fuse the Appaloosa SDK with its full functionality using Appdome, rapidly, efficiently, and easily.
How to integrate the Appaloosa SDK using Appdome
To Fuse your app with the Appaloosa SDK, follow these simple steps. Note, the same workflow can be used for either an Android or iOS app.
1. Upload App to the Appdome platform
You will need to have your app binary available to begin. If you are running iOS, you can use a signed or unsigned .ipa file. However, if you are running Android, please make sure you upload a signed .apk file. The app you are Fusing on Appdome can be built with any tool such as xCode for iOS and Android Studio using any mobile development frameworks such as Xamarin, Cordova, and React Native.
If you have purchased an EXTEND or IDEAL account on Appdome, you have access to the App Publisher Catalog when importing apps. You can also request a trial.
- To begin, click Add New App
- Upload new app or choose an app from the Catalog and click Add to My Apps
Once you find the .ipa or .apk file you intend to use, simply select it. The file will be automatically added to the Appdome platform. Once complete, you’ll see a success message and automatically moved to the next step in the workflow.
2. Get ready to make your Fusion selections
After your app is uploaded to the Appdome platform, you are ready to make your fusion selections from the Fuse tab of the workflow.
Click Start Fusing
3. Select Management under the Fuse tab
To add the Intune SDK, you’ll need to enable or “turn on” EMM Services on the Appdome platform. Next, choose the EMM SDK you wish to fuse to your application – you’ll see the Appaloosa SDK listed in the drop down.
Click Management under the Fuse tab to get to the Fusion Settings.
4. Select the Appaloosa SDK
If you have an EXTEND or IDEAL account class on the Appdome platform –viewable on the bottom status bar– there are options available to select a 3rd Party SDK.
Next to EMM Services, move the slider button to the right which turns it on.
From the drop-down list, select Appaloosa SDK.
