Deploy a build to an app store

After a native build has been created, it can be deployed to either the Apple App Store or Google Play Store via a Store Destination using the following command:

$ appflow deploy <ios|android> --app-id=<appflow app id> --build-id=<build id from appflow> --destination=<store destination name>

Customize the app store deploy

  • --destination=<store destination name> defines an App Store or Play Store location where build artifacts are uploaded. The destination name is case-sensitive and must use quotes if there are spaces. You can find the destination name in Appflow under Store Destinations.
