End of Support for BlackBerry Apps

As of June 2017, Apperian will no longer support the delivery of native BlackBerry applications. This decision is based on customer feedback and an overall decline in BlackBerry app usage in the marketplace.

Customers currently using the Web Catalog to deliver BlackBerry apps should notify their users as soon as possible.

This is NOT end of support for BlackBerry devices. Customers with BlackBerry 10 devices can use the Web Catalog or the Android App Catalog (on BlackBerry 10.3 or higher) to deliver Android apps. For more information about BlackBerry support, see Supported Platforms.

Touch ID Support for iOS for App Catalogs and Policies

You can now enable Touch ID Authentication when using Single Sign-On (SSO) authentication for iOS devices. Previously, Touch ID was only available for EASE Authentication.

When enabled, Touch ID support now also extends to any app with policies that require authentication (for example, Enterprise SSO or Self Updating App).

To enable this feature for EASE Authentication, you need to update your App Catalog and re-apply policies to any apps which use the Enterprise SSO or Self Updating App policies. For more on enabling Touch ID with standard EASE Authentication, see Specify the User Authentication Method.

To enable this feature for Single Sign-On authentication, contact support@apperian.com.

Touch ID Authentication with the iOS App Catalog

If your organization is configured for standard EASE Authentication (the EASE built-in authentication mechanism), you can now enable users to log in to the iOS App Catalog using Touch ID, as long as Touch ID is set up on their devices. 

By default, Touch ID is not enabled for an EASE organization; to enable it, go to Settings->Authentication in the EASE Portal. Once Touch ID is enabled, users will need to log in one time using username and password; on subsequent logins, they will be prompted to authenticate with Touch ID instead.

Note:  To get this feature, update to the latest iOS App Catalog and distribute it to your iOS users. To obtain the latest catalog, contact support@apperian.com.

Touch ID is also supported with SSO authentication using certain SSO providers. If your organization is using SSO authentication and you are interested in enabling Touch ID, contact support@apperian.com for more information.

For more on enabling Touch ID with standard EASE Authentication, see Specify the User Authentication Method.

Application Metadata Stored for Each Version

Prior to this release, EASE stored application metadata at the application level. This meant that when users viewed details about an app in the App Catalog, they saw metadata associated with the latest version of the application, regardless of which version(s) they had access to in the catalog. Now EASE stores the metadata for each version of an application so that users can view the unique data associated the versions they are accessing. 

versions1.pngThe example to the right shows the details page in the App Catalog for two versions of the Benefits app: V2.0 and V2.2 (the latest). Each version has a different name, icon, version note, and short and long description.

EASE now stores the following metadata at the version level:

  • Name
  • Icon
  • Version Number and Notes
  • Short and Long Description
  • Form Factor
  • Minimum OS Version
  • Custom Metadata

In upcoming releases, EASE will store additional data at the version level, such as screenshots and application reviews.

Application metadata will be stored at the version level for any app that you add or edit from this release forward. It does not apply to metadata associated with older versions of apps created prior to this release.

To learn more about managing multiple versions of your applications in EASE, see Application Versions.

With new web services endpoints, this enhancement is also available to customers and partners who interface with Apperian APIs. For more detail, see New V2 API Endpoints.
