Permanently Disable local child app discovery?


(Kevin) #1

Every time I install a custom SmartApp I have to go into the IDE and uncheck the “Enable local child app discovery” checkbox in order for it to appear in the mobile app.

I’m assuming this is a new “feature” in the latest batch of updates which was defaulted to checked for some reason.

Does anyone know if there’s a way to permanently uncheck that box so I don’t have to manually do it every time I want to install something?

Ooooo… This is helpful information!

Weird child relate stuff has been happening with SmartTiles child dashboards over the past few days and this might be related. It sounds like some of the symptoms we’ve observed, @slagle.

Nice, I just submitted a ticket to support about this very thing although I didn’t realize it had to do with that checkbox. I also noticed that when this is checked your app will have “(dev)” appended to the name in the IDE.

I guess I will wait for support to respond and if they cannot answer I will provide this information.

A fix is in the works. Shouldn’t be too long.

Well… I’ll reserve conclusions until the fix is deployed.

Tim, I just want to fully understand. Is the fix going to be that the checkbox will not be checked by default and that for now we should go ahead and un-check the box? Or is the issue that the box should be checked but there is some issue when it is checked? I just want to know if by un-checking these I will need to go back and fix them later.

@slagle Tim has this been deployed? It was scheduled for yesterday I think.

I also think it was in the release notes…

Just want to confirm that’s been resolved.
