Late last year we announced the release of the developer console, the one-stop shop for our developer community to manage their Forge apps. Today we are expanding on the capabilities by introducing a lightweight way to share your Forge app with users for testing and internal usage. While we’re working to get Forge apps on Marketplace, you can start distributing your apps right now!
We want developers to have complete control over when and how they share their apps. Which is why, as part of this release, we’ve changed the distribution status of all existing apps, and newly created apps, to ‘Not sharing’.
What does this mean?
To share their Forge apps, developers will need to enable sharing in the developer console.
For existing Forge apps: until now, both app developers and users were able to grant OAuth 2.0 consent. Following this change, users won’t be able to grant consent until the developer changes the distribution status to ‘Sharing’.
We want your feedback
As always, we are super interested in any feedback you can share on what has been built so far, so feel free to share your thoughts in the comments or DM me.
