Creating and Uploading Android Builds

Creating an Android build

You must disable the FLAG_SECURE setting for your testing builds. If the flag is enabled, it prevents tests from capturing screenshots.
This is a summary of the process for creating a .apk build. This process varies for Android Native apps vs. React Native apps. For assistance, please refer to the Android Studio documentation.
To generate an .apk build of your app, perform the following procedure:
    1.
    Open your project in Android Studio.
    2.
    Select Build -> Build Bundle(s) / APK(s) -> Build APK(s).
    3.
    Locate your build for uploading.

If you are uploading a file, drag and drop your build into the UI or click “or click to add” and select your build. Optionally, if you want to include a version in your filename using the format <application>-<version>.apk, ACA uses the version to auto-populate the Version field in the Create New Build page.
      URL: If you want to use a URL to specify the location of your build, click “URL” and enter the URL in the “URL for build” field.
    5.
    Add values for the following Advanced settings fields:
      App Wait Activity: Defines which activity the Android app waits for after launch. Waiting for the wrong activity may cause an error when starting your session.
      App Wait Package: Defines which package the Android app waits for on launch. Waiting for the wrong package may cause an error when starting your session.
