Export Build Artifacts

Exporting build artifacts in Appcircle's CI/CD pipelines allows for efficient management and distribution of app builds, ensuring that the necessary files are easily accessible for testing, deployment, or storage.

Key Benefits

Easy Access: Provides convenient access to build artifacts, such as APKs, AABs, or IPAs or any other type of files exported for testing, distribution, or archiving purposes.

Streamlined Distribution: Facilitates the distribution of app builds to testing platforms, app stores, or other distribution channels by making artifacts readily available.

Automated Export: Automates the export process as part of the CI/CD pipeline, reducing manual effort and minimizing the risk of errors.

Customizable Export: Allows for customization of the export process, enabling the selection of specific artifacts or configurations to be exported based on your needs.

Points to Consider

Artifact Storage: Decide on an appropriate storage solution for your exported artifacts, considering factors such as security, accessibility, and cost.

Artifact Types: With custom scripts or with certain steps, you can export artifacts other than binaries (e.g. logs). Keep this in mind if you need to access a certain file after a build.

Versioning: Ensure that exported artifacts are properly versioned and labeled, facilitating easy identification and management of different builds.

Post-Export Actions: Consider any actions that need to be taken after exporting artifacts, such as notifications to team members or triggering downstream processes.

Retention Policy: Define a retention policy for your artifacts to manage storage space and ensure that only relevant artifacts are retained for the necessary duration.
