Technical & Marketplace Certification

An app has two different statuses that represent two distinct workflows: technical and marketplace. These workflows represent partner app certifications. Only when the certifications are granted, apps are installable and ready to be published on the Talkdesk AppConnect™ marketplace, so they can be purchased.

For getting the certification (technical, marketplace or both), you have to make a request.

Technical Workflow

Involves all the business units’ approval (Engineering, Business, Security, Billing).

🚧

For an app to be installable, the app must have the Available status, having the technical workflow approved (except for the user's and Talkdesk accounts).

Marketplace Workflow

Handles all the marketing reviews and validations.

For an app to be published on the Talkdesk AppConnect™ marketplace, the marketplace workflow needs to be approved.

Requesting the Certification by Submitting an App Version for Review

You can get the technical and marketplace workflow certification for an app version by making a request via Builder, by submitting an app version for review.

After all app information fields have been filled, an app version is ready to be submitted for review. You can choose to request the technical or marketplace workflow review, or both.

❗️

If the app version requested for review was already accepted and is available, the partner can't request its review.

1 - Once on Builder, go to the Projects section (1). Then enter the Versions tab (2). Select the app version you want to submit for review (3). On the correspondent app version line, go to the three dots menu button (4), and click the Request review option (5).

5 - You will get an email from Talkdesk® whether the app version submitted for review has been accepted or not.

If the app version has been rejected, you will receive an email explaining why the version was not accepted. You can make changes and then submit a new certification request.

If the app version has been approved, you will receive an email confirmation like the one below.

Once you confirm it, the currently approved versions will be published. If the technical version is approved it will become available for users to install it, while if the marketing version is approved it will transit to a publishing state. Talkdesk will then proceed to advertise this marketing version in the AppConnect Marketplace, with an email notification being sent to the partner when it occurs.
