Migrate your app manifest

With Actyx 2.0, the format of the app manifest changes, as well as the way you provide it to Actyx. Let's use the following v1-compatible app manifest as an example for this migration guide:

{    "manifestVersion": "1.0",    "type": "web",    "id": "com.actyx.dashboard",    "version": "1.0.0",    "displayName": "Machine dashboard",    "description": "This app displays a machine dashboard.",    "dist": "release",    "main": "release/index.html",    "settingsSchema": "./settings-schema.json"}

The new manifest only requires an app ID, version, and display name. Making the above example compatible with version 2 looks as follows:

{    "appId": "com.actyx.dashboard",    "displayName": "Machine dashboard",    "version": "1.0.0"}

Now that you have a new manifest, you need to do 2 more things:

  1. Sign the app manifest. Please follow the steps in the how-to guide for signing app manifests.
  2. Instead of packaging the manifest together with the app, you now provide it to Actyx via the SDK or Pond. Please follow the steps in the how-to guide on authenticating with an app manifest.

After migrating your app manifest, you can start to migrate your app packaging, logging and settings.
