Deploying SMP Fiori Application to User Mobile(Android) & App Update

Hi All,

I am currently developing an offline app using SMP and till now I have successfully created the android app and its working in the android device with all features like user authentication & device registrations from SMP.

Now I am planning to implement app update feature in the App. But before that I have question on how to deploy the app to user?? Currently I've created the Android apk using cordova comand line and installed in the device and test.

Is there any way in SMP that it will give some URL and the user can use it to install the app in his device

or

is it that I've to create the apk manually and give it to the users. So from next time onwards, when we push the new code to the SMP, it will use the app update feature to update the app in the users device?

can someone please help?

Thanks in Advance!!

Mahesh

    Typically you would deploy your app to either a public app store like the Google Play or the Apple App store. Another option might be to have an internal (to your company) app store. SAP through the Mobile Secure product has an internal app store named Mobile Place.

    Mobile Place user documentation

    I believe it may even be possible to automatically push applications to managed user's devices.

    If the deployment is internal or less formal, the following options may work.

    On iOS I think there is something called over the air deployment.

    Here is the Android equivalent.

    "AppUpdate" feature is applicable only for hybrid (kapsel) apps. user has to installed app and registered himself (on-boarding) on SMP in prior of using it.
