For users to install your app, you will need to sign the app package with a trusted certificate. You can use a third party paid certificate from a trusted certification authority (CA) to sign your app package. If a third party certificate is used, the user will need to have their device in either sideload or developer mode to install and run your app.
If you are deploying an app to employees within an enterprise, you can use an enterprise issued certificate to sign the app. It's important to note that the enterprise certificate must be deployed to any devices which the app will be installed on.
You can order a Code Signing certificate from companies such as Comodo, Digicert, GlobalSign, GoDaddy etc or their distributors. The process can take several days as they need to validate your business. Once the validation process is completed, the CA will send you an email with a collection link to the certificate. You would then follow the link provided by the CA and download the certificate and install it into the Trusted Store of your Windows installation. You can then export the code signing certificate along with the associated private key from the browser used to install the certificate. You’ll want to save it to your computer as a PFX file.
Next upload your PFX file to the SessionCloud portal. Our build system will use this certificate to sign your Windows softphone whenever the Build is run. You can use Windows 10 Microsoft Management Console (MMC) to obtain the certificate common name and thumbprint.
In the App Store section for the Project under the Windows tab you can fill in the necessary details our Build system requires to code sign your app.
This can be found using the MMC app when inspecting the certificate in the Trusted Store. The Common Name is the value of the CN field of the Subject.
You can set this to whatever you want but it would typically be the name of your Company
Enter the password you setup when creating the PFX file.
This can be found using the MMC app when inspecting the certificate in the Trusted Store.
