Ionic Pro: App version not changes after Deploy Live Updates


#1

I use this feature to build “About” page:

App Version

I do code changes, I change version in config.xml, do:

git push ionic mychannel

reload App to get fresh update, it come, app starts, changes applied to pages code, but plugin still see old app version, not that which was deployed.

Any chances to get version number after deploy?

First the usual snippet:
Ionic Pro is a hosted and closed source service, so there is not much we, the community, can help you with.
There is a FAQ and common/known issues at https://ionic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us/sections/115003254647-FAQ-Common-Issues
Official documentation is at https://ionic.zendesk.com/hc/en-us and https://ionicframework.com/docs/pro/
You can - and should - contact support at http://ionicframework.com/support#support

And now the real answer:

Ioinc Deploy only updates the content of your app, what you locally have in www. Native code that is generated e.g. with values from config.xml can not be updated - that has to be uploaded to the app stores as usual.

So even after a Live Update with Ionic Deploy the actual app version is the same. Only the content inside has changed. You might want to include another version number for the “app content” that is saved in your Ionic app itself.
