How to test your MicroStrategy Project for the newest MicroStrategy Mobile version

Hello there!

Today let’s talk about a good tip: How to test if your project is good to run in the newest MicroStrategy App?

MicroStrategy has 2 apps in apple store: MicroStrategy Analytics for iPad and MicroStrategy Mobile for iPad.

MicroStrategy Analytics for iPad is used for demos proposes and MicroStrategy Mobile for iPad for enterprise usage.

But, sometimes the Analytics is updated and the Mobile not, so you can test if your project will be good for the newest Mobile update.

To use the Analytics to test you just have to:

1. Get the URL from Mobile Configuration

Capture

2. Change the mstr to analytics:

Capture

From:

mstr://?url=http%3A%2F%2F192.168.1.1%3A80%2FMicroStrategyMobile%2Fasp%2FTaskProc.aspx%3FtaskId%3DgetMobileConfiguration%26taskEnv%3Dxml%26taskContentType%3Dxmlanf%26configurationID%3Dfa87d1ba-9ac8-42e0-b546-8e4b30772d70&authMode=1&dt=2

To:

analytics://?url=http%3A%2F%2F192.168.1.1%3A80%2FMicroStrategyMobile%2Fasp%2FTaskProc.aspx%3FtaskId%3DgetMobileConfiguration%26taskEnv%3Dxml%26taskContentType%3Dxmlanf%26configurationID%3Dfa87d1ba-9ac8-42e0-b546-8e4b30772d70&authMode=1&dt=2
