Hi everyone!
I have an app under development, how can I install it to a live store (not a dev store) for testing purposes, and is there any possible way to do that at all? It will be a custom app not a public app

If you want to install it to the live store that you intend to use the app on when you're done then you can set its distribution method which will allow you to install it to that one store.

 

If you want to install it to a live store that isn't the one you intend to install it on when you're done you'll want to create a new app since custom apps can only be installed on a single store.

 

Generally you shouldn't need to use a live store for testing as development stores let you test nearly all app functionality.

Hi Gsmaverick,
Basically, we have kind of created a live store for testing and another one for actual use.
So is there a way we can test it on live directly not development?
