Preparing mobile apps for signing
Before you generate an installation package for your Android or iOS app, you must prepare the app for signing by creating a certificate set. With a complete certificate set, you can build the app and ensure that users can install the app on their devices.
In Pega Platform, you create Android and iOS certificate sets that consist of keys and certificates that sign the app when you generate the installation package.
When you sign your Android or iOS app, you provide a digital authentication for the app and guarantee that the app and its updates come from a legitimate source. If you do not sign your app, testing or running the app on mobile devices is not possible.
- Configuring mobile build server settings
Ensure that you properly configure your build server settings before you generate an Android or iOS application package for your mobile app. Incorrect or missing build server credentials disable the option to build an app in the mobile channel.

Pega Platform includes default security mechanisms that help you generate secure mobile apps.
- Generating installation packages
Convert your application into a mobile app that users can install on their mobile devices. You can generate both Android and iOS apps, which helps you meet the needs of a wide array of mobile users.
