Appflow Live Update is a tool that enables you and your team to send live code changes directly to your users without waiting in line for App Store reviews and approvals.
What is the definition of a "live update"?
A live update is a single download from the Live Update service. Whether a live update is applied to your app or not depends on:
CHANNEL_NAMEvariable configured in your app's installation of the Live Update plugin.
- The native versioning setup for the Web Deploy Build
How are live updates counted?
Every time an update is downloaded from the service it counts as a single update. The limits associated with each plan are on a calendar month basis. Your quota will refresh at the beginning of each calendar month. If you exceed your quota for a given month, you will have to upgrade to a higher plan, or wait until the next calendar month to send more updates. If you need more than 25,000 updates (the highest self-service limit), contact our sales team for an Enterprise plan that will scale to meet your needs.
What happens when live deploys are depleted for the month?
First of all, it’s important to note that your quota is for a Calendar month (January, February, etc) and not your billing period.
When your live update quota is depleted users will no longer receive updates from the Live Update service. This means if you run out in the middle of an update, half of your users might wind up on an older version of your code if you don’t have any quota left.
