Get your Build file

Part 5: Generate your Build file

Skill Level: Expert

Before You Begin

  • Should be very comfortable using Adalo


  1. In Adalo, in the left toolbar, click on the Publish tab.

  2. Select 'Android App' and 'Start new Android Build'

  3. In the modal that pops up, enter your Android Credentials.

    • Enter your Package Name from the Firebase Project. These are case sensitive so ensure they match the one in the Firebase Project exactly.

    • Upload the google-services.json file you downloaded from your Firebase account.

    • Upload the Service Account Key file you downloaded from your Firebase account.

    • Click Next.

  4. Enter your Android App Settings.

    • Customize the Display Name for your App.

    • Upload a Notifications Icon for your App.

      • This is required, even if your app does not yet use push notifications.

  5. Select Version Number and Start Build.

  6. While the app has started building, you will see a timer showing the estimated remaining time.

Important: If this is the first time you are creating an Adalo build with this Package Name, we will create the necessary Upload Certificate. If you are using a Package Name that has already been published with Adalo, we will use the original Upload Certificate.
