HockeyApp Transition to App Center October Update


HockeyApp October update

App Center is still closing important feature gaps as HockeyApp is in the process of transitioning to App Center. See what we’ve been working on in October and learn more about what we’ve committed to on our roadmap.

The updates we’ve made in the last month:

  • Switched the distribution group management for orgs to App Center
  • API to upload custom crashes
  • Diagnostics support for iOS extensions
  • Link to a specific version for your testers

Switched the distribution group management for organizations to App Center

Screenshot of the UI to manage a shared distribution group The last missing piece in the transition of user management was to make organization distribution groups fully controllable in App Center. No action is required from your end.

Upload custom crashes via API

Screenshot of the custom crash upload documentation Upload custom crash reports if you prefer not to use the App Center SDK or if you develop for a different platform. The forwarding of custom crashes from HockeyApp to App Center will also be available soon, as well as support for the Custom app type.

Diagnostics support for iOS extensions

Link to a specific version for your testers

The features listed on our roadmap will be closed before HockeyApp transitions into App Center. More information on what’s coming next is listed on our iteration plan for October.
