Edge Apps and distributions go through several states until they are released/shared. These states define the Edge app/distribution lifecycle:

Edge app lifecycle

  • Development
  • Test
  • Released
  • Discontinued

Distribution lifecycle

  • Test
  • Preview
  • Released
  • Discontinued

Configurations are possible in Development state only. The developer has to ensure a correct configuration prior to release.

Roles and responsibilities within the Edge app/distribution lifecycle

In Edge App Manager there are three roles. Each role is bound to a certain profile of rights:
