New Feature: New vs. Existing App

When adding a project to Scriptoria that will publish an Android App to Google Play, the workflow had to be modified based on whether the app is being added to Google Play (New App) or if the app is already in Google Play and we will now be managing it through Scriptoria (Existing App).

In the workflows that are used to publish to Google Play, the App Builder Configuration form has been changed so that you will select either New App or Existing App to continue.

Here are the changes to the initial workflow when publishing an existing app:

  • The App Store Preview, Create App Store Entry and Make It Live steps are skipped.
  • The app is not published as a draft but is rolled out to production.

You can view the Workflow Diagrams to see where these steps are in the workflow.
