How to Manage Fusion Set Security Templates iOS/Android

Appdome enables customers to create Fusion Sets, which are savable, re-usable, and sharable templates that pre-populate all of the implementation choices made by the customer, as well as all required configuration information. Appdome provides the ability to share these Fusion Sets instead of maintaining them across all apps.

This Knowledge Base article provides step-by-step instructions for managing Fusion Sets on Appdome as part of a Security Release Management process.

How to Manage Fusion Set Security Templates

Appdome provides the ability to security templates (called Fusion Sets) across all apps in an account. This allows customers to scale their mobile app security releases more efficiently and to avoid repetitive tasks.

Follow these step-by-step instructions to manage Fusion Sets for any iOS and Android app.

When adding an app, a default Playground Fusion Set is created for each app. This Fusion Set is not shared and will affect only the app it was created for. Below is an example of a playground Fusion Set.

Sharing Templates Using Appdome-GO

If you want to share the Playground Fusion Set with another Team, you can make a copy of it.

  • Hover on the Playground Fusion Set, and click on the Copy button.
  • Name your new Fusion Set and press enter.

In order to save time for users, Appdome automatically updates every account subscribed to a specific Fusion Set upon each change, so if you turn on a setting in an app subscribed to a Fusion Set, every app that’s subscribed to the same Fusion Set will be updated as well, so you’ll just need to Build that app and the new settings will be added to it.

Manage Fusion Sets

Once a Fusion Set is created, there are several different actions you can take as part of managing the Fusion Set through its lifecycle.

  • Upload or select another app on the same mobile platform (iOS Fusion Sets can be shared with other iOS apps, and Android Fusion Sets can be shared with other Android apps).
  • Open the Fusion Sets drop-down, just as you did when you Created the Fusion Set.
  • Select the Fusion Set you want to use by clicking on its row in the drop-down.
  • Copy an existing Fusion Set which you can then rename and change.
  • Subscribe all apps of the same platform to the Fusion Set. This feature saves significant time because it’s not required to manually subscribe each app to the Fusion Set one by one.
  • Delete Fusion Set – if you no longer need it.
  • View details of the Fusion Set, such as who created it, creation date, including all apps subscribed to the Fusion Set and more.
  • Export the Fusion Set as a JSON file

Export and Compare Fusion Sets

When collaborating within an Appdome 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 Fusion Set settings:

  • Click the meatballs menu icon to review the Fusion Set details.
