Main Concepts

As an introduction to Applivery we highly recommend you to explore and understand the following basic concepts that will be explained in detail in the following chapters of the documentation since they represent the very basic concepts of our platform.

Dashboard: 

The part of the platform where you and your team will administer everything related with the management and distribution of your Apps. You can find it under https://dashboard.applivery.io. Users of the Dashboard are named “Collaborators” of your projects and they may have administration or development permissions over your projects (Apps).

Organizations:

As in real life, organizations represent a logical distribution of your projects (Apps). In most cases they represent a single company and are the container of all the Apps that belong to it, but in other areas, the organizations could represent different business units of the same company or even a single person/developer.

There are two types of Organizations in Applivery:

  • Personal Organizations: the ones you get when you register for the first time that have limited functionalities and basic governance features..
  • Company Organizations: advanced organizations prepared to manage larger organizations with advanced governance and extended features.

Apps:

You can understand an App as the equivalent to your project. Apps can store both iOS and Android files (IPAs & APKs). You can manage the Apps on your own and have full control over them so you’ll decide whether to create a new app or reuse an existing one when starting a new project.

Builds:

Every version of your App. They are created the moment you upload a new .ipa or .apk package to the platform.

Collaborators and Employees:

There are two different types of users in Applivery:

  • Collaborators are users that will have administrative permissions over your projects (Apps). They have full or limited access to the Dashboard based on their role: Owner, Admin or Developer.
  • Employees represent each end-user that will have access to you Apps. You will be able to customize Employee permissions both on App and Organization levels.
