Better Github Integration

With this release, if your InterSystems application source code is hosted on Github a lot of mandatory Open Exchange application fields could be imported from Github repo. Enter the URL of the GitHub repo and the name, download URL, short description, license, full description will be imported from Github. The only mandatory fields to feel in will be InterSystems Data platform and tag-list. Check the video which illustrates the process.

Improved application update procedure

All the parameters of Open Exchange application need to pass the approval procedure. And starting from this release you don't need to unpublish the repository if you want to make changes and publish the next release. If you want to publish the next release of the application do the following steps:

1. Open the published app and click Edit:

2. Make the necessary changes and click Save -  this will create a draft version of your application. You may see both published and draft entries on My Apps section:

3. Once you good with the new changes send the draft application for approval review.

4. When and if the new version of the app is approved the previously published version will be changed to the newly approved version.
