Mobage Open Platform Application Creation & Operation Guide

 

App Publish

Only if App Publish Application is reviewed and approved, DeNA will set the release status according to the requirements of the developers. There're three levels:

1. not released: App is not released.
2. limited released:App has already connect to Mobage Platform, but it hasn't publish to the Mobage Game List. It is mainly used to perform test in the Production environment.
3. totally released:Formal release, app will appear in the Mobage Game List.

Once App is set to "limited released" or "totally released", it never be set back to "not released".

 If in the "limited released" status, users can enter URL to access the game, which causes unexpected user access. Regarding the statistic data for those users, the developers will decide whether it's necessary to clean it.
