BBM Vendor Name - can it be changed?

Hi,

 

I've connected my BB10 app to BBM, but I've noticed, that in my BBM profile, my app has vendor name equal to the vendor name in my code signing keys, and not the vendor name from the BAR file.

 

I don't like it, as my code signing keys have a different vendor name than the one I've decided to use with my apps.

So a user buys an app from vendor X, and in his BBM profile, which is publicly available, the app is marked as being cretead by vendor Y. Not really good for marketing.

 

Can I somehow change the vendor name in BBM?

Please use plain text.

This can be changed.  First back up your keys using the steps here: Backup and Restore BlackBerry Code Signing Keys

 

Next, delete your author.p12 file and re-create it using the company name you want shown.  Don't delete the barsigner.db or barsigner.csk file.

 

Rebuild and sign your application and you should see the new company name.  This change won't affect your ability to create upgrades for your existing applications.
