When you submit an app update to a store, the version number of the update must be higher than the version number of the existing app version. In Web DPS App Builder (currently Android only), you can override auto-numbering and specify a version number. After you do this once, you can turn off override so that Web DPS App Builder auto-increments the version number each time you create or edit the app.

  1. Open the DPS App Builder application, and note the existing app's version number.

    The version number is the number preceding the last period ( . ). For example, if the app version is, the current version number is 17. You'll want to specify 18 or higher in the next step.

    If you used Woodwing or a third-party solution to build your app instead of desktop DPS App Builder, you might need to specify a large number (such as "3000002") for "Version Code" in the next step.

  2. In Web DPS App Builder, select "Override the App Version Number" when building the app. Specify a more recent version. If you used Woodwing or a third-party solution to build your app, specifying a large number is usually required.

  3. Build the app. After the app is built, turn off "Override the App Version Number" so that the version number will be auto-incremented in future builds.

    You can override the app version number at any time.
