Instructions

STEP 1. Upload your APP on the Platform

Follow this tutorial to upload your app on your Control Panel and have it show up in the drop down menu of STEP 1: APP SELECTION Upload an App on your Control Panel

1. Challenges in the previous way of uploading apps


Users have been encountering a lot of issues upon uploading different versions of their apps to their Control Panel.

Too many apps on the list would appear under each other with only a small change to their names. It doesn’t look good as it looks crowded in there and it could be confusing to the user who would have to remember which one was the latest APP version uploaded in their CP.

To remediate to this issue, Eagle DEV team released a new feature called ‘'version’' which allows all users to upload different versions of the same APP with the same APP name on their Control Panel without struggling.

STEP 2. Upload a ‘'Version’' of your APP in the Control Panel

Notice in the (Image 2) below, the existence of a small box between your App’s name and the blue Upload button.

That is the ''Version'' box. It contains all the versions of your APP (the same APP) uploaded to the Control Panel.

To use the ‘'Version’' feature:

1- Select an APP which you want to upload another Version of

2- Click on the “Upload” button.

Once you click the Upload button, you would go to the ‘'Uploader page’' where you can upload your APP normally like you used to do.

When the upload is complete, go back to the Control Panel and refresh the page.

Select your app and the new version of the app would be in the small ‘'Version’' box.

You have now successfully uploaded the newer version of your app. Select the version you want to run and Play App.


Note: Different Configs can be used for all versions your app.

If you have more than one version of the app and you want to get the link of the latest version, you don’t need to add app version in the link, Eagle’s system will automatically add the latest version of the app to the URL.
For Example:
https://connector.eagle3dstreaming.com/v5/demo/E3DSFeaturesTemplate/E3DS-Iframe-Demo?appVersion=latest_version_number

is the same as this URL that doesn’t have the version number:

https://connector.eagle3dstreaming.com/v5/demo/E3DSFeaturesTemplate/E3DS-Iframe-Demo
