Application Details

With this type of application...Details include...

All apps

A Custom Metadata section that lists values for any custom metadata fields stored for the application. This section displays only if the Custom Metadata feature is enabled for your organization. For more information, see Application Custom Metadata
Native apps

A Version History that lists information about each version of the app. A new version is stored in Apperian when an administrator edits the app and uploads a new application binary. In the case of an iOS or Android application created as a hybrid app, a new version is stored whenever the hybrid app is rebuilt. A Download link lets you download the binary for a particular version. Apperian stores the binary for up to 10 versions of an application; if there are more than 10 versions, the Download link displays for the 10 most recent versions only. 

An App Catalog Deep Link that points to the details page for the app in the App Catalog. You can provide this link to an App Catalog user to give the user a direct pointer to the app. From there, the user can install the app. For more information, see Send an App Catalog Deep Link.

Native apps created by adding a Hybrid App

If the native app was created by adding a hybrid app, a Web URL field lists the URL of the web app embedded in the app.

For more information, see Hybrid Apps (Delivering a Web App as a Native App).

Native apps enabled for Direct InstallA Direct Install URL that can be provided to users to install the app on their devices with no App Catalog and without having to authenticate with Apperian. For more information, see Delivering Applications via a Direct Install URL
Public appsAn App Catalog Deep Link that points to the app in the Apple App Store, Google Play, or Microsoft Store.
