This is the first step in creating a custom app. Click here to see the full guide.
You'll need to provide a direct link and the SHA-256 Hash for your package.
How to get the direct link to your custom package
The custom package (.pkg) file should be hosted on a cloud service where it can be accessed via a URL.
Here are a few things to keep in mind when entering the URL to your hosted package:
- Once the custom app is created, this URL cannot be changed.
- URLs to custom packages normally end in .pkg.
- The URL must be publicly accessible.
- Confirm the URL is correct before creating the custom app. Fleetsmith does not validate URLs, so an incorrect link could cause issues once the custom app is deployed.
Finding the SHA-256 hash
The next step after entering the URL of your custom package is to enter the SHA-256 hash, which Fleetsmith uses to validate the authenticity of downloaded packages, ensuring they are complete and can be trusted.
Depending on your macOS version, one of the three commands below should work to obtain the SHA256 binary hash for a package:
shasum -a 256 <file>
openssl sha -sha256 <file>
openssl sha256 <file>
As an example, a SHA256 hash might look something like this:
