Usage questions

How do I copy over my existing source code to the App Factory?

With every new application that you create, you get a new repository space allocated to it. You can create a branch from this repository trunk and then check in your existing code into the new branch. See Create an Application with my Source Code.

Can I integrate my own repository, build management tool etc. instead of the default ones?

Yes, there are extension points to integrate any tool of your choice. See Extending the App Factory.

Can I invite members who are external to the App Factory into the application team?

No. To invite a member to participate in your application, the member must be registered with App Factory first.

Is it possible for me to create a default team size with desired roles?

No. Size restrictions are set to teams in the App Factory. You can either use the existing roles or create new roles as described in Adding new Application Roles.

How do I create a database and tables to store my application's data?

See Create a Database and use it in an Application. 

Is it possible to share resources across applications?

No. Resources are created for a specific application.

What is meant by the build number?

My application URL is too long. Can I map it to a custom value?

Yes, you can map your application's production URL to a custom value using the Production URL section in the application's Overview page.

Can I view runtime logs and download their archives?
