I have been following this guide https://devcenter.bitrise.io/tutorials/deploy/android-deployment/#set-up-google-play-api-access
It really seems to me that some steps are missing. I am not sure if this is just done automatically, but no where it mentions anything about signing or building the apk.
So I did exactly what the guide said. And even though i was extremly spectical that this would be enough I tried to push and trigger the build pipeline. As my assumptions, something was missing.
I got the build error:
INFO[04:47:52] * [OK] Step dependency (go) installed, available.
- JSONKeyPath: https://con***7b9
- PackageName: com.dashboardwrapper
- Track: alpha
- UserFraction: 0.5
- UntrackBlockingVersions: true
Issue with input: issue with input ApkPath: parameter not specified
However the guide from above, does NOT mention anything about setting ApkPath:
- Fill out the required input fields which are:
Service Account JSON key file path: This field can accept a remote url so you have to provide the environment which contains your uploaded service account JSON key. For example:
Package name: the package name of your Android app
Track: the track where you want to deploy your APK (alpha/beta/rollout/production)
And that is it. guide ends here. with the comment:
Your workflow is ready for deploying your app automatically to Google Play Store. Once the app is tested and generated, you can upload it to Google Play Store.
Can someone please explain what is missing or point me to a more complete guide?
