Rebuild, Auto Rebuild, and Custom Build


What is Rebuild?

Rebuild is packaging the extensions with the latest changes made in the system. Note that, rebuild is applicable for applications installed via extension mode only. For applications installed via injected mode, Apty injects updated code snippets into the host application to implement updates and changes. 

When do we Rebuild? 

  • While upgrading or downgrading the Apty Client to one of the supported versions.
  • While modifying the Application URLs of the host application

What is Auto Rebuild? 

Earlier, whenever an upgrade or downgrade was required, admins used to rebuild the Apty Client by clicking the Rebuild button on the Downloads screen under System SettingsNow with the auto rebuild functionality, admins can select the version they want to upgrade or downgrade to without having to rebuild manually. The auto rebuild feature will make sure when admins select a version, its respective packages are up to date. Auto Rebuild is a built-in feature that comes with the Client Version feature. 

The below description explains how auto rebuild functionality works for applications installed via extension mode.

How does Auto Rebuild functionality work for extension mode?

While upgrading or downgrading the Apty Client to one of the supported versions

PATH: Login to Admin Console>On the bottom of left side panel >System Settings>Downloads

Earlier, admins used to upgrade to the latest Apty version by clicking on the Rebuild button under the Downloads screen. But now from the dropdown under Downloads, admins need to just select the version they want to upgrade or downgrade to and the rebuild occurs automatically.

While modifying the Application URLs

To push the rebuild to end-users: Log in to the Admin Console > On the bottom of left side panel > System Settings > Client Version > Under Extensions Client Version, Click on Rebuild and Push 

Whenever Application URLs for a particular host application are updated and saved, the following screen appears. It asks admins to download and test the latest version locally. 

After that go to the Client Version page and click on Rebuild and Push to push the changes to end-users. 

What is Custom Build?

Apty offers custom build solutions to fulfill an immediate requirement from a client or resolve a client-specific issue. This process will be assisted by the Customer Success team of Apty. After a successful roll-out of the custom build, admins will be able to find the custom version in the dropdown menu on the Downloads page as well as the Client Version page. 

Custom build format: <version>-<customer/tenant name>
Example: 4.15.0-customer1

How to access the Custom Build? 

  1. Reload or login to Apty Admin Console.
  2. Go to the Downloads screen to start seeing this option in the versions dropdown.
  3. Select the custom version from the dropdown. Download and test it.
  4. Once testing is successful, you can go to the Client Version screen and then apply this custom version as your default version for all end-users.
