Registering Cordova apps from the MobileFirst Operations Console

Register your Cordova application to an instance of MobileFirst Server to establish communication with the server and to provide the server with information about your app. You must register your app to the server before running or testing code that accesses server resources.


Before you begin

You must have the IBM MobileFirstâ„¢ Platform Operations Console running on the MobileFirst Server targeted for registration. For more information, see The IBM MobileFirst Platform Foundation Developer Kit.


Overview

Each platform of a Cordova app is registered as an independent application on the MobileFirst Server. However in the IBM MobileFirst Platform Operations Console they are grouped together under a single display name and application id. To register your Cordova MobileFirst app using IBM MobileFirst Platform Operations Console, register each platform according to the native app registration procedure, using the same display name and application id for each platform. For information on how to register each app see Registering iOS applications from the MobileFirst Operations Console, Registering Android applications from the MobileFirst Operations Console, or Registering Windows applications from the MobileFirst Operations Console.

Each platform appears as a separate app in the console, under a single display name and application id in the left pane, regardless of whether the Cordova app was registered with IBM MobileFirst Platform Operations Console or with MobileFirst Platform CLI.

Results

Your Cordova applications are registered on the server. Regardless of the method used for registering, each platform app needs to be managed separately in regard to the options provided by the console (management, security, authenticity, etc.).
