1. Login to your meld cloud console account.
2. Click the Applications icon in the left menu.
3. In the top right hand corner of the screen, click Create App.
4. Select the app type you would like to install:
a) Web URL
Available on Basic, Professional, and Enterprise plans.
This app type is essentially a web page. It might be your organisation's site, a contact form, or a web app.
Please note, if your Web URL requires authentication, and you want to automate authentication, you will need your app vendor to provide a method for no-touch authentication. This might be using query string parameters in the URL, or using IP whitelisting.
i) Set your app name & choose an icon that accurately represents the app.
ii) Create the first version.
b) Packaged App
Available on Professional, and Enterprise plans.
This app type is a standard web app that has been packaged, ready to be placed onto a web server.
c) Packaged Service
This app type is for background services. Effectively, this is a web app that runs in the background.
d) Google Slides
This app type is a quick way to publish advertising, marketing, menus or other visual content.
When configuring this app you will need to provide the ID string of the Google Slide file.
Handling New Versions
When you upload a new version of your app, create a new version in the application tab.
From there, the devices download the app as soon as it's available; however please note that the Agent does not stop the previous version if it's already running on the device.
In the case that the app is already running, you need to reload (reboot) the Agent to apply the new version.
If the device has a daily reboot schedule (which is always recommended) - then the new version of the app will start automatically on the next scheduled reboot.
