Deploying a release build

If you want to deploy a release build, don't forget to set up code signing on Bitrise to build and sign the APK with your release key.

  1. Add the Android Build Step and set the following inputs:

    • Build type: Set this to apk.

    • Variant: Use releasedebug, or one of your custom variants if you have any.

  2. If you build a release variant, add the Android Sign Step.

    You can skip this if you plan to deploy an unsigned debug variant.

  3. Add a Deploy to - Apps, Logs, Artifacts Step.
