To make the changes you made to an app available for end-users, a release needs to be created which can be deployed to end-users. A release is a named version of your app, which will use a fixed build of the software.
After a release has been created, it cannot be changed anymore.
Setting a version number
Before creating a release, check whether the version number displayed to the end-user at the bottom-left corner of the screen is correct. This version number can be set in the Application Settings and is only used for display purposes within the application.
Checking for local modifications
A requirement for creating a release is that no local changes exist in the workspace. You can check the log file from the Superadmin Workspaces tab to see whether there are any local changes. If there are these should be resolved first, either by committing or by reverting the local modifications.
Creating a release
A release can be given a name to indicate which version it corresponds to.
The name of a release can only contain alphanumerical characters and some special characters.
