IOS setup process

You will need to enroll in the apple developer program from here:https://developer.apple.com/programs/enroll/. 

This is the same type of account we use for publishing our standard Arthur apps.Once you have created your account you should be able to add our developer account as a user (development.team@arthuronline.co.uk) using the following steps: 

  1. Go tohttps://appstoreconnect.apple.com/ 
  2. Go to ‘Users and Access’ 
  3. Click the blue ‘+’ button at the top left to add a user 
  4. Use ‘Arthur Online’ as first/last name, email asdevelopment.team@arthuronline.co.uk
  5. Tick the role box for ‘App Manager’. This means we can set up everything app-related and push releases for it. 
  6. Scroll down to the bottom and tick ‘Access to Certificates, Identifiers & Profiles. This is a bit technical but these are necessary as we have to use a certificate in order to actually push updates and for notifications to work. See below for what the screen should look like: 

Android setup process

 

You will need to create a Google Play Developer Account from here: https://play.google.com/apps/publish/signup/. Once you have created your account you should be able to again add our developer account as a user (development.team@arthuronline.co.uk) using the following steps: 

  1. Go to https://play.google.com/apps/publish. 
  2. On the left pane click ‘Settings’. 
  3. Under ‘Developer account’ click ‘Users & permissions. 
  4. Select Invite new user at the top right 
  5. Add the development.team@arthuronline.co.uk email with the role ‘Release manager’. This role basically means we can create apps, manage releases and edit store listings. With this we can set everything up for you. See below for what the screen should look like: 

 

 

How to test the app once live

The team at Arthur will need to adjust the tenant invited to link to the new app only once live on the store.

We advise when pushed live and the link between your account and the app has been created by the Arthur team you create a test tenancy (separate email to your Arthur one) and invite yourself to the app.
