Selecting a specific client version

Version:

When you build a mobile app for the Android or the iOS platform from the Channels and interfaces form, you can select a specific version of the client, for example, to avoid compatibility issues with the devices that are used in your organization, or to test unreleased functionality offered by future releases of the client.

You can select between Pega Mobile Client that supports offline-enabled apps, JavaScript APIs and custom modules, and various versions of Pega Infinity Mobile Client: Preview, which is the default version, and Snapshot, which is an experimental version that may provide extended functionality at the expense of stability. You can also specify an exact build version number of the client that you want to use as the basis for your mobile app.

  1. Optional:

    If you want to build a mobile app based on the same version of the client as the current mobile app, determine which version of the client was used to build the current mobile app:

    1. Install the mobile app on the device.

    2. In the mobile app, click Menu Settings System info .

    3. Note down the Pega Mobile Client version number.

  2. In the Explorer panel, click Interfaces.

  3. In the Current channel interfaces section, click a mobile app icon.

  4. In the Build your application panel, turn on the switch for iOS or Android, and expand the Release channels section.

  5. Select the Enforce specific mobile client version check box.

  6. In the Choose a type of client version field, select a client version. Select Other to set the exact numeric version of the client.

  7. Click Save.
