Firebase App Distribution

Deploy a Flutter app to Firebase App Distribution using the Flutter workflow editor

Set up publishing to Firebase App Distribution to distribute your Android and iOS apps to testers.

This guide only applies to workflows configured with the Flutter workflow editor. If your workflow is configured with codemagic.yaml, please go to Publishing an app to Firebase App Distribution.


Enabling publishing to Firebase App Distribution

  1. Navigate to App settings > Distribution > Firebase App Distribution.
  2. Enter your Firebase token.
  3. Provide the Firebase app ID for Android and/or iOS. Note that the fields for Android or iOS configuration are displayed conditionally based on the selected build platforms at the top of the page.
  4. Enter the alias(es) of the tester groups to whom you want to distribute your Android or iOS app. To enter multiple groups, separate them with a comma or a space, or press Enter after each value.
  5. Select Publish even if tests fail to upload the artifacts even when one or more tests have failed.
  6. Finally, select Enable publishing to Firebase App Distribution at the top of the section to enable publishing.

Note that:

  • if your app uses Firebase services, you need to upload the Firebase configuration files to Codemagic, see the instructions here;
  • if no suitable artifacts are found, publishing to Firebase App Distribution is skipped;
  • each uploaded binary must have a different version to appear in the Firebase console, see how to increment build version;
  • release notes can be published with the build if you have added them to your repository, read more here.
