How to Build Mobile Security Templates for all iOS/ Android Apps

 

Appdome users have the ability to create mobile security templates, known as “Fusion Sets,” to speed up and repeat mobile integration projects. Fusion Sets can include validated, approved or known combinations of features, services and configurations that users need to use and reuse across several apps or in successive integration projects on each new release of a single app.

This Knowledge Base article provides step-by-step instructions for creating Fusion Sets and using mobile security templates with mobile apps.

We hope you find this knowledge base useful and enjoy using Appdome!

How to Build a Mobile Security Template for All Apps

Appdome is a no-code mobile app security platform designed to add security features to mobile apps. Appdome’s no-code mobile app security platform offers mobile developers, DevSec and security professionals a convenient and reliable way to protect Android and iOS apps without coding. When a user clicks “Build My App,” Appdome leverages a microservice architecture filled with 1000s of security plugins, and an adaptive code generation engine that matches the correct required plugins to the development environment, frameworks, and methods in each app.

Using Appdome, there are no development or coding prerequisites to build secured apps. There is no SDK and no library to manually code or implement in the app. The Appdome technology adds the relevant standards, frameworks, stores, and logic to the app automatically, with no manual development work at all.

Mobile security templates automate mobile service implementations, ensure implementation consistency and accelerate integration time per release of each app.

4 Easy Steps to Build a Mobile Security Template for All Apps.

You can either use default Fusion sets or Create your own custom template.

Use Default Fusion Set Per App

Each app is assigned a default mobile security template or “Fusion Set” to save and store a user’s work on Appdome. This Fusion Set changes as the user’s feature and service selections change. Each time a user clicks “Build My App,” the services contained in this Fusion Set are applied to the app.

Create a Custom Fusion Set 

To create a Custom Fusion Set:

  1. Click the + icon to copy the default Fusion Set.

  2. Enter a name to identify the new Fusion Set.

  3. To Subscribe All iOS or all Android apps, click the * (star) Icon.
  4. To Subscribe individual apps, click on the app and then, chose the Fusion Set from the drop-down menu inside the Build Tab – under Appdome GO.

You can now add to your mobile security template by adding features and services to the Fusion Set and create custom implementations to suit specific use cases. You can also subscribe to new apps or remove apps from this Fusion Set to complete multiple projects in parallel.

Using Fusion Sets

With either the Default Fusion Set of Custom Fusion Set, adding features, SDKs and APIs to mobile apps is easy. Simply select the desired Fusion Set and Click “Build My App.”

Congratulations! When your build is complete, you will see the notice below.

Export and Compare Fusion Sets

When collaborating as a team, multiple people may work on the same Fusion Set – one creates the Fusion Set, someone else signs it, etc. You will probably want to review any changes committed on the Fusion Set, and you can do that by exporting its settings as a JSON file.

Even when working alone, you can compare your different Fusion Sets and monitor your work.

To export a Fusion Set settings:

  1. Click the meatballs menu icon to review the Fusion Set details.appdome mobile security templates ios and android
  2. Click on the download icon to export the fusion set settings as a JSON file.

That is it – Enjoy using Appdome Fusion Sets!
