What Publishing Does Behind the Scenes


When you publish an app, all data is stored as app instance data and will be displayed within reporting and other areas of the system. Once an app is published, any references and links that point to the app will always use the latest app version. Any app instances that were already in existence and were created from earlier app versions can be managed from that older app version. For more information, see the Working with Versions topic.
