Publish your app
After you configure your app’s settings and you set it up for distribution, the last step is to fill out the Publish app page. Only fill out the Publish app tab if you want your app to be publicly available to all of Attentive's customers. Once the listing is approved by Attentive, it is made available in the Attentive marketplace.
Before you begin, make sure that you created a custom app in the Attentive platform and enabled it for distribution. Your app should appear with an Unlisted status in the Marketplace tab.
