User Guide: App Publish

Publish

After you have configured all the required services for an app, you need to publish the app. Publishing allows your app to start using the Quantum service in real-time. After an app is published, Quantum Fabric generates the code that you can integrate with platform SDKs.

Incremental Publish (Delta Publish)

When you publish an app, the app is processed for the full app publish life-cycle, which publishes all the associated services assets in the app. With the current implementation, all your associated services and assets will be published even though you have made a minor change in one or two services. Publishing all the associated assets can cause a longer app deployment time as well as blocking servers' availability for other resources.

From Fabric V9SP2 GA, the App Publish life-cycle supports the Incremental Publish feature, which is an Incremental Publish of an app. An Incremental Publish will deploy only these services/assets that have been modified/added to the app since the last publish to this environment. This will skip re-publishing the non-modified services/assets as well as the newly linked services/assets which are already published to the same environment, and results in a shorter duration for the app deployment time.

You can select the Publish Modes and Exclusions under Publish Reconfiguration page.

Important: Snapshots created during Incremental publish cannot be used for rollback, as they contain only delta services/jars information. To enable rollback capability for snapshots captured during incremental publish, you must select the Enable rollbacks when using Incremental publish check box in the Snapshot > Settings page.

Important: When you publish an app to an environment, all the identity services associated with the app are published only to the selected run-time environment. The latest published Identity Services will affect any other apps in the same environment if they use these identity services.

The latest published identity services on the current environment will not affect any apps in different environments.

If you are making an identity call directly (without SDK), you must provide the app key (or) secret header in the payload in below format:
For Basic Login - Headers:
X-Kony-App-Key: <app-key-here>
X-Kony-App-Secret: <app-secret-here>
POST <identity-login-url>?provider=<identity-service-name>


For OAuth and SAML Login: Follow these steps to provide the app key (or) secret header
Step 1: GET the Authorization URL to pass the app key as a query parameter.
Authorization call: GET <authorization>?appkey=<app-key-here>

Step 2: Token Call - Headers:
X-Kony-App-Key: <app-key-here>
X-Kony-App-Secret: <app-secret-here>
POST <token-endpoint>

In Quantum Fabric Console, the Publish tab of an app contains the following tabs:
