Publisher Meaning?

    Question

  • When we mention an app in a device's metadata, we have to include the app
    name and the publisher.  Is the publisher string parsed in any way, or is
    it strictly a full text match?  The string appears to be in X.400 format
    (C=Country, OU=Company, etc), but there's a certain amount of variability.
    In some examples, the X.400 components are separated by "comma space", and
    in some examples, they are separated by backslashes.
     
    So, is there anyone actually validating and parsing the parts of that
    string?  Or is it just a dumb, full text match?

  • Hi Tim,

    Are you talking about the publisher from Specify applications in the Device Metadata Authoring WizardI'm afraid if I misunderstood something, the publisher schema should not have any restrict, just a string but should be as same as the one on the developer certificate used to sign the package and the metadata. You can find it by here:
