Highlights

BlackBerry enhancements

GD App ID automation

Every BlackBerry application must have a unique identifier, known as the GD App ID. This identifier is used within BlackBerry-specific contexts and is independent of any Android package names or iOS bundle identifiers. GD App ID is automatically derived when adding the BlackBerry step to the App Enhancement stage of a workflow. By default, the Blue Cedar Platform generates this ID based on your organization name, and also includes the App name and workflow stage, for example com.bluecedar.myapp01.appenhancement. You can override the default and specify your own GD App ID.

What do I need to do?

You don't need to change any existing workflows that already include BlackBerry no-code integration. This change is only relevant for workflows where you're adding or editing a BlackBerry step in the App Enhancement workflow stage. 

  • You can override the default GD App ID when adding or editing a BlackBerry step in the App Enhancement stage of a workflow.  See No-Code Integration - BlackBerry.
  • You can use the new BlackBerry Dynamics no-code integration extension to override the root part of the default GD App ID (that is, com.orgname ) for future workflow runs. See Extension - BlackBerry Dynamics for information about configuring the extension as well as GD App IDs in general.

The GD App ID won't affect anything until a BlackBerry UEM step in Testing or Production stage. At that point, the organization domain portion of the GD App ID must match what's configured in your BlackBerry UEM target. 

Rebranded login page

The Blue Cedar Platform has a new login page, and you can access it directly from bluecedar.com. The login process works the same as before.
