The purpose of this article is to guide the user on how to deploy apps on an H200 STB via Orchestrate.
Uploading apps into Orchestrate
Here you will be able to upload your apk files into Orchestrate.
Select your domain and go to the Manage section.
On the left of the screen under Software click on Manage Android Apps and then Create Application.
Set a name for the application.
You can now upload your apk file to the section area by clicking on the + Upload APK button. It is also possible to upload a different version of the app so you can choose later which one to install.
IMPORTANT: If you are getting a Signer Certificate Error you can find the solution in this article and then open a ticket with us and we will put it in place for you.
Now that the apk file is defined as an Android App in Orchestrate, go to Manage Groups and select the group where the H200 is present.
On the right side of the screen click on Group details.
At the bottom of the Groups Details section, you will find Application Settings.
Click on + Add / Remove Parameters and search and config these two options:
system.allow_install_unknown_sources = True
appinstaller.link = "App's link"
To open automatically the app upon H200 boot, change the tvapp.package_id option to the app's ID.
You can find the Application ID in the Application Details where you previously uploaded in Orchestrate.
Click on the Save button and Kick the H200 in the Device Details for the changes to take effect.
Reboot the H200.
