How to share MDK app with colleagues?

Hi all,

I've developed a MDK application and I want my colleagues to test it but at the moment I'm not able to brand my app with MDK SDK.

I was wondering if share the app qr code with my team possible?!

I've shared the qr code with one of my team member and when he read the code into the mdk svcs app and logged in his sap btp cockpit account the login failed with this error message: The user must be pre-defined.

I've searched the mobile services where can I set up a user but I didn't find it.

Do anybody has any ideas how can solve my problem?

Thanks in advance! 🙂

If the MDK SDK is not an option, an alternate way to build a branded client is by using the Cloud Build service. See this tutorial for details. Once the build is successful, you can download the binaries locally. You can also use Mobile App Catalog feature where you can upload the binary, publish it, and then share the link to install the app on a device by scanning the QR code.

Regarding the error message, it seems that your team member is not yet a user in the subaccount where the mobile client is supposed to connect to. To resolve this, go to BTP cockpit > Security > Users > create user. Once done, your team member should be able to login.

Please note that the public app store client "SAP Mobile Services Client (Mobile Svcs)" is intended for quick testing and proof of concept purposes. For productive usage, we recommend that you create a branded client using either MDK SDK or SAP Mobile Services cloud build service which allows to predefine the connection to an SAP Mobile Services app configuration, skipping the onboarding process via QR code. Additionally, you can build multiple clients for multiple apps.
