Cloud Build Service provides 2 options for creating a Mobile development kit client:

  1. Create a standard MDK client by providing your own app icon and app logo.
  2. Create a customized MDK client by importing your local .mdkproject similar to what you might have done via MDK SDK locally on your machine.

You need to:

  • Add Cloud Build service feature to your MDK app configuration
  • Upload signing profiles and/or app information
  • Upload your local .mdkproject (applies for custom MDK client)
  • Initiate the build

After a successful build, you can download the APK or IPA file.

  • Step 1

    Make sure you are choosing the right device platform tab above.

  • Step 2

    If you haven’t created your local .mdkproject, have a look at step 3 from this tutorial.

    Compress your .mdkproject folder, the resulting zip file will be used to create a build job for a customized Mobile Development Kit client in Mobile Services cockpit.

  • Step 3

    Make sure you are choosing the right device platform tab above.

    You can find more details about Cloud Build service in help documentation.

  • Step 4
