Private Channel Packaging Question

For the name / version ..is version based on the version sdk that I used to build or is it based on ....this is build one of this channel so make it 1.0 or what's best?

Since I plan to go public after testing the private channel, I should use a different name for the private channel and not the same name I plan to use for the public channel, correct?

Thanks you in advance.

What I do is make it the same as what is in my manifest file like test/1.00 and if I need to make a change to publish I increment manifest to like 1.01 and to publish it would now be test/1.01

The Channel Version setting before hitting Publish can stay at 1.0 as it is the major version. It's the manifest increment that is important for a channel update.

Hey bandal,

Okay checked my manifest and see it has the following information:

major_version=1
minor_version=0
build_version=00002

Thank you.

Just increment the build_version each time an update is needed. Zip & package and update channel.
