You can now save signing credentials.
Appdome now makes signing integrated apps even easier, giving users the option to store signing credentials on the Appdome platform. While some Appdome users chose to sign Fused apps inside their own environment (using in-house tools to complete the signing process), a growing number of customers have requested that Appdome maintain their signing credentials on the Appdome platform. The purpose of this feature is to make signing apps faster, more efficient and readily available for all users, including citizen developers who may be new to signing.
Saving iOS and Android Signing Credentials
The process for saving iOS and Android signing credentials on the Appdome platform is the same. After you Fuse services or SDKs to an iOS or Android app, you must sign the Fused app in order to be able to install it on mobile devices.
By default, Appdome does not store the certificate, certificate password or provisioning profile used for signing iOS apps, or the keystore, keystore password, key password, and alias for the signing Android apps. That is, once the user session is closed, all signing credentials are permanently removed. Now, you are given the option to save signing credentials on Appdome. This can save a ton of time, help organize sets of signing credentials, and help prevent signing errors by automating the signing process.
How this is done
Ater uploading a P12 signing certificate, Provisioning Profile and entering the P12 password for iOS, or after uploading the keystore and entering the keystore and key passwords for Android, you can select the option to save these signing credentials. You then enter a name for the set of signing credentials which can be selected each time you sign an app.

What’s even cooler is that now users can choose to store different sets of signing credentials for different apps, different sets of test devices, diferent development test cases, and for deployments.
So the next time you want to sign an app, you don’t have to waste time searching for the right set of signing credentials for the right tasks. Just select the credentials and sign!

Remember, the next time you sign in to the Appdome platform, just select from the list of signing credentials and go! This truly enhances the automation experience!
