FYI Problems onboarding Testflight users.

  • New Wordpress Plug-In Forum
    Guest:

    Just a note that we have a new forum to contain discussions relating to the Wordpress plug-in which Daniel Persson originated and has been making great progress on. You'll find it under "Server-Side Solutions."

I signed up (can't remember what day it was - recently though), but I don't see anything in Testflight yet. (I am testing another app, so I at least know Testflight is working. Is there a TestFlight invitation code I need to redeem?

This issue should be resolved now. My automatic tester onboarding is now working properly.

I got sick of waiting for this and I am sure that any new testers have been sick of waiting for access to builds.

To ease us along I have just manually exported the MailChimp list cleaned it and uploaded it to test flight, so as of today anyone on the MailChimp list should have an invite.
I registered today & facing the same issues as others faced, could you refresh as of today?

I didn't see any invite and I signed up early May.
Invites are being processed automatically every 10 minutes.

So hopefully everyone that is signed up should have one.

You can use any mail address but the whole process goes more smoothly if you use the email associated with your iCloud account.

Sorry Jeff. I looked through my emails again and finally found the invite from 6 days ago. I have the client working now. This is pretty cool stuff. I can't wait for it to be more widely available.

No apology required.

Thanks for testing.
A few recommendations. I spent a good 5 minutes scanning my SQRL identity barcode with the app. Is there a way for the app to recognize that different QR code and say "hey bozo you have to import your ID first" or even offer to import the Identity. Also in the interest of a more clear UI perhaps changing the file folder in the top right to show an "ID" icon might also offer better visual clues.

Pm me your mail address and I’ll make sure you are on the list and resend any invitation.

Hi to all,

Got my invite minutes ago. I was able to install the app and start it.
Here a couple of thought (just trying to be constructive, not criticizing).

1. On first use, it is not evident that the SQRL Identity needs to be created or imported.
2. Once I figured that the SQRL Identity needed to be imported, I tried importing it using the "Import Identity From QR code" and it works but it is failing to decrypt the Identity every time due to "Incorrect PAssword", however, I am positive I am entering the password correctly.
3. So, I try importing Identity via "Import Text Identity" but it does not let me enter it. I am not sure what the Text Identity is, so I tried the Rescue code which starts with 7610 but I can only enter 76 and nothing else. I notice that if I try for example entering 7623 it let me, so there is some sort of validation going on that must be wrong or mistaken, or the recuse code and text Identity are different things! If that is the case then where do I find the Text Identity, I never saw it or read about it and I read everything.
4. In my opninion, the folder identifying the area where one goes to import the identity should be a GEAR and not an Icon that looks like a folder.

So I am not being able to use the app. What could be the problem?

Hi,

Point 1: Is already on the list for improvement.

Point 2: I am sure this works OK and many others have used it successfully. That said there is always the unforeseen. Which client created the identity you are trying to import? (and example identity backup created by steves client is attached by way of an example). If you are happy to share your ID and password/rescue code I can try it at my end, if so please PM it to me.)

Point 3: See identity backup attached

Point 4: Noted

Apple have changed an API that is part of Appstore connect, so new testers are not getting added at the moment.
If you are waiting for an invite, this is probably why.
Applied last night, had the invite this morning. Exported my SQRL ID from Windows to iPhone, iCloud made it available on my iPad. Everything seems to work as expected. Thank you Jeff.

Richard.

Hi Jeff,

I changed my password and was scanning the QR code from when I had the old password (a mistake of paper misplacement), I went to the Windows desktop app and scan the QR code from there and it all worked. I have now destroyed the Old QR code.
So, I am confirming it was my mistake and the app worked as expected when it did not validate my password.

Also, just noted that when there are only one identity and one click (press) the "Set as Default Identity" do nothing and do not show a message so one feels in limbo until it is realized that THERE IS ONE IDENTITY (lol). It will be nice to throw some message stating, "The only identity is the default one." or something similar.

Thanks for your hard work!

Or else put a checkmark by it...

As far as I can see it’s up to date.

Pm me the mail address you used to sign up and I’ll check

The invites are not working again.

Looks like MailChimp API changes this time.

I'll sort it tonight

Onboarding test flight users should now be working again and now really be up to date.

It had been appearing to work but in fact, failing silently since 1000 testers.
(The mail chimp API only allows 1000 members to be returned in one request, so I am now paginating my calls)

Sorry for the delay, and thanks for your patience.
