Marking Release Candidates

This action is used to change the status of a build that has been previously marked as a Release Candidate (RC). This might be necessary if the build is found to have issues that require it to be retracted from the release candidate status, indicating it's not yet ready for production release.

Metadata Details

The Meta Data Information option provides a comprehensive overview of the version's metadata. This includes details such as the application name, version, build number, and other relevant information. Users can review and edit metadata to ensure accurate and consistent versioning across the application.

Resign Binary

The Resign Binary feature allows users to resign both iOS and Android application binaries. For iOS applications, users can change provisioning profiles or app entitlements, while for Android applications, users can resign binaries with a new keystore. This feature is essential for updating app distribution settings and security credentials without requiring a new build.

The History has two sections: The Publish History and The Resign History.

The Publish History gives users a chronological log of all publish actions taken for a specific version. It allows users to track and audit the deployment process over time, which can be crucial for compliance, troubleshooting, and historical analysis.

The Resign History gives users a chronological log of all resign actions that was done within the Publish Module for a specific app version.
