Publish

Once you are done editing your app project in Woodford, you need to save and publish the project. Click Publish and wait for the process to finish. If the published project has the highest priority of all available projects for a particular user role, those users will now receive the updated project during synchronization.

Publish all projects

This button is useful if you are using project hierarchy. Any change in the parent project requires that all child projects are republished. To save you unnecessary clicking and to ensure that you don't accidentally omit one of the child projects, use the Publish All button.

For more information, see the feature introduction Webinar

Validate

When publishing, app projects are first validated, i.e., the system verifies that the app can successfully run the project. Validation also launches whenever you publish a project.

Publishing with older version

If you publish an app project with a newer Woodford version than is the mobile app version of your users, synchronization may fail with the error Unsupported metadata version. In this case, you have two options:

  • Ask your mobile users to upgrade to the most recent version of the mobile app.
  • Republish the project with an older release version. As Publish Version, select a version compatible with your mobile apps, then click Publish.
