Blackbird docs

Deploying your app

Blackbird apps that you create using the SDK can be deployed to your Blackbird organization as a custom app. This tutorial assumes Visual Studio 2022.

Before deploying an app, make sure that it at least contains a class that implements IApplication and a class that implements IConnectionDefinition.

  1. Right-click on your project in the solution explorer and click Publish


  1. If you have not created a publish profile yet, create a publish profile that publishes to a local folder.
  2. Click Publish and then Open folder
  3. Create a .zip archive including all files in this folder
  4. Go to Blackbird in your browser. On the app you want to update click New version and then Update App
  5. Upload the .zip file to the screen that pops up and click Update.

Note: If you are working on a Mac, make sure to delete the hidden _MACOSX folder in the zip archive before uploading it to Blackbird.
