Test Build before Submitting to App World on BB10

Is there a way for us to test a build for App World on a BB10 device before submitting to App World?

 

Looking for simliar capability to ALT- TST that we have on BBOS App World.

Upload app and place in DRAFT mode.

Add user to the sandbox (BBID).

Go into App World on the dev alpha device, goto app menu (swipe down), select settings, select Development Mode, enter content id.

Re: Test Build before Submitting to App World on BB10

This works on Dev Alpha / Simulator but does not appear to be available on Z10? I have several users with Z10 who are testing my apps. How can I enable them to download unapproved releases without sending BAR and have them sideload?

The user needs to put the Z10 in developement mode in settings to make that option avaiable in App World settings.

Re: Test Build before Submitting to App World on BB10

I realize this is a bit of an older topic, but I am trying to do this and I am having an issue.  I am unable to download a build that I have in draft mode.  When I put in the Content ID and press load the version is shows it the one that is currently posted for sale.  Do I have to wait a certain amount of time before the Draft mode build shows up?

 

Thanks

Yes...unfortunately you need to way a few hours.  This wasn't always the case and I am not sure why it changed.
