Google Play Console Release issue

We have configured Ionic App flow for streamline our development process. But I have come across some issue with internal testing flow in google play store.

Every time we push the commit , it triggers the build , package and Upload in to play store

But this flow ended up with Draft mode in Release dashboard.

In order to roll out the update we need to logging to Play console and do it by manually.

Is there any way to automate this through app flow?


I am interested to know the answer


You are right. Appflow only uploads your artifacts to the Playstore console and you would need to manually publish them. This is intentional and currently, there is no other way to further automate publishing from appflow.

This can be sometimes frustrating especially when you are frequently deploying for testing or development, but this would also prevent any accidental deployments to AppStore that could be triggered from appflow.
