App Registration and Mgmt.

Overview

“App” refers to any application distributed through a “store.” Apps can be registered and managed through the Developer Center.
  • Products are serviced on both 'ONE store' and 'ONE store Global' depending on the distributed country.
    • ONE store: an Android app store that provides services in 'South Korea'.
    • ONE store Global Platform: An Android app store available in countries other than 'Korea'.
To list products on ONE store Global Platform, please review the 'requirements' first.

Register App

To register a new app, go to “Register App” in the “APPS > Applications” menu.

Register App

  • App title: Enter a name that best represents the app’s characteristics.
    • Maximum of 50 characters allowed.
    • Trademarked names or names of existing apps cannot be used.
  • Setting a default language: Select the default language of the app.
  • Package name: Enter a unique ID for the application.
    • This must be the same as the actual package name that will be applied in the future. Changes cannot be made after registration.
    • When operating the same version code, it is recommended to separate the app and package names from other Android markets. Package names can be defined when creating an Android project, and cannot be duplicated.
  • How to check the package names of other Android stores, such as Google Play.
※ Precautions for use of android:authorities
An installation error may occur if the android:authorities value is identical to that of apps registered in other markets. Please be sure to separate the authorities value by package name.
Recently, there have been issues with apps that have applied FacebookContentProvider during installation due to the authorities value not being separated.
FacebookContentProvider does not require the authorities value when using the login and marketing functions. It is only required when using the sharing function, so please keep this in mind during development.
<provider
        android:name="com.facebook.FacebookContentProvider"
        android:exported="true"
        android:authorities="com.facebook.app.FacebookContentProvider1234"/>

Notes

When the “Blocked by Play Protect” pop-up occurs during installation

If an app with a package name that has never been distributed in “Play Store” is distributed in “ONE store” a “Blocked by Play Protect” pop-up is displayed, and installation is blocked.
This occurs when the “Play Store” and the package name or signing key are built and sold differently. Please notify Google in advance to ensure installation is not blocked.
If you are unable to install the app due to this issue, use the following guide for installation.
  1. 1.
    Run the “Play Store” app
  2. 2.
    Select the profile on the top right > Select “Play Protect” menu
  3. 3.
    Select the “Settings” icon on the top right
  4. 4.
    Change “Inspect apps with Play Protect” to “OFF”
  5. 5.
    Re-enter the store, download the app, and install it

    </intent>
    <intent>
        <action android:name="android.intent.action.VIEW" />
        <data android:scheme="onestore" />
    </intent>
</queries
