Publishing an app

Once the new app version was already released, the app must be installed in order to test its new settings. However, it is not possible to install an app that only exists in its local environment. You must publish the app so that it can be installed by yourself or by others as well.


Use the vtex publish command to publish the app in the account in which you’re working.

You must be logged into the account where you want the new app to be published. Make sure the app’s vendor is equal to its account.

If your app doesn’t have billingOptions, users with access to the account in which the app was added can install it through the Admin’s Apps section.

Otherwise, the app can be installed using Toolbelt, regardless of the specified billing method. Click here for more information on app billing models.
