Builds and App versions

A build is a synonym for a version of your app.

Upload a new app version

Upload your application binary package to Updraft before you release it to your testers. Updraft supports package uploads for Android (.apk) and iOS (.ipa) apps.

Uploading the package

To upload a new package to Updraft, go to the build page of your selected app project and switch with the help of the dropdown in the header to your app you want to upload a new package.

Upload your build / app version

Once you created your first app project and added your first app to it, you are able to upload your first builds.

You can upload your builds:

  • manually by drag & drop

  • manually by chosing it from your folder

  • you can use one of our Plugins

  • or you have the possibility to upload your builds via the API/ Curl

We recommend to use one of our provided plugins - it's that simple!

1 Step Go to the build section

Uploading new builds to your app is realy simple. Just go to the Build tab on the left side bar and click on Upload new build. Be aware that you are staying in the right app.

2 Step chose your build / app version to upload

Drag & Drop or chose your build (.ipa or .apk file) from the folder. As soon you selected your file, the file will be uploaded to Updraft.

3 Step Overview about your uploaded build / app version

As soon you have successfully uploaded you see an overview about your uploaded file. You see the file name and you can delete it which redirects you back to the upload screen. You will see the App title and the Environment Name to which you are uploading your build. If you want you can add Release Notes. Such release notes your testers will see, as soon they install your application. If you click on Save your build will be uploaded to the displayed App & Environment and you will be redirected to the Build History.

Release Notes can be added as plain text as well with line breaks.

Upload app version with another package name or bundle ID

Updraft will alert you if you upload an app that uses a different bundle ID or package name than the previously uploaded files.
