We need a way to see which package is being certified. RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • A release of mine recently got certified, and after not seeing any of the new features show up I checked the app details page. Turns out an older package had been certified, meaning I lost 7 days waiting for certification of a version that was already in the store. I created a new package and uploaded it again for certification. I have no way, however, of checking what version of the package is now being certified. For all I know, it's certifying the old version again and I'm going to wait another seven days for certification of a non-update. Is there any way the package version could be added to the certification status page to avoid mixups like these?

  • That's a great suggestion.

    Keep in mind that it takes about 24 hours for the new package to actually show up in the store after it has been certified.

    You cannot submit a new package for certification without canceling the previous one or waiting for the one in progress to complete.

  • Hi Basputin,

    If you arent already, you can change the App version number when you package your App, this way your description is also updated with the version number.

    Thanks

  • Hi Mark, I'm aware, but my issue is during the certification process. I can't tell which version is being certified because the version number (and the description) are not visible in the certification status page, so if by some mishap I uploaded an old version, I have no idea if I'm going to wait 7 days for some outdated version of my app to make it through certification. If I could see the version number (right now, it says "[App name]: release [release number]". Maybe this could be changed to "[App name]: release [release number] - Packacke version [package version number]") I would know I had accidentally uploaded the wrong version and could cancel the release and upload the proper version. Now it's just a one week waiting game.
