Setting up application package options for Android
To push notifications to your SDK mobile app , you must set up a certificate set that has push notifications enabled. Information that push notifications are enabled is displayed when you select a certificate set that has push notifications enabled.
On the Integrate your application panel, select the Android switch.
To change the default icon of your app, upload a custom icon.This action allows you to customize the icon in the Pega Platform for the SDK mobile app. For more information, see Uploading an icon for an application package.
Perform one of the following actions:
- If a certificate set does not exist for the app that has push notifications enabled, create a certificate set. For more information, see Creating an Android certificate set.
- If a certificate set has already been defined, select one from the Certificate set list.
In the Version field, enter the release version for your app. Keeping track of different versions of your mobile app helps you during the development, testing and production stages.
- Configuring application package-based mobile app
You develop an SDK mobile app outside of App Studio by using the integrated development environment (IDE) of your choice, which also uses the Pega Mobile SDK. By later creating a definition for your mobile app within App Studio, you can configure the app for push notifications.
- Android certificate set
A certificate set defines certain parameters of the mobile app for Android that you are creating.
