Deploy a Flutter app to Google Play using the Flutter workflow editor
Codemagic enables you to automatically publish your app to the internal, alpha, beta and production tracks on Google Play. To do so, you must first set up Android code signing and then configure publishing to Google Play.
You will need a service account in Google Play Console to obtain the JSON credentials file. See how to do that here. In addition, you must build the app in release mode and set up Android code signing.
Before releasing the app to Google Play, ensure that it meets Google Play’s best practices guidelines.
Setting up publishing to Google Play on Codemagic
Once you configure publishing to Google Play, Codemagic will automatically distribute the app to Google Play every time you build the workflow.
Navigate to the Distribution section in app settings.
Click Google Play to expand the option.
Upload your credentials JSON file.
Select a track for publishing.
- Internal — publish for internal testing and QA
- Alpha — publish for testing with a small group of trusted users
- Beta — publish for testing to a wider set of users
- Production — release the app to production
- Custom — release the app to a custom closed testing track
If you want to publish to a custom track, enter the custom track name.
If your application supports in-app updates, set the desired priority. If not, select Default.
In case you want to release a staged version of your application, which reaches only a fraction of users, set Rollout fraction to a value between 0 and 1. To release to everyone, leave the value empty.
If you are getting the next error:
Changes cannot be sent for review automatically. Please set the query parameter changesNotSentForReview to true, mark the checkbox Do not send changes for review.
But if the checkbox is marked and the app is sent for review automatically, you will get the error
Changes are sent for review automatically. The query parameter changesNotSentForReview must not be set.
If you want to publish the .apk even when one or more tests fail, mark the Publish even if tests fail checkbox.
Select Enable Google Play publishing at the top of the section to enable publishing.
