Need help with deep linking and publishing app

Jump to solution

I have a few questions. 

I developed an application but it is not a login screen authentication where the user enters their email and password to log in. Instead, it generates a code and the user needs to link their account with my website by entering the code that generated.

In such a scenario, should I include customer test login details when I submit the app?
and, what should I enter inside the deep linking parameters? Because the screen that displays when it opens on the Roku will be an activation screen only.

Can I pass the certification test? does Roku allow such app to be published?

The apps I maintain used to do the same thing as yours, with a code. We were made to change them to accept a username + password for login instead.

(One of them had a ton of users who used to log in with FB/Twitter, those people can't use the app on Roku any more.)

Can I select "A customer account is not required to access any channel feature." and get around this? even though the user should link the device with their account at my website.
