Once your Monodoc, AppLight or Next Gen App are created in Cloud Connect you can configure them in AppFactory: iOS and/or Android.

You need to configure your Monodoc/AppLight/Next Gen in iOS AppFactory in order to get the IPA files and submit them on AppStore.

For Monodoc, the iOS configuration gives two possibilities to set the app: via Remote reader and via AVE reader (embedded reader).

Warning

iOS AppFactory needs Xcode to be launched. Before launching Xcode and the simulator for the first time, make sure you met the pre-requisites. For further details see Xcode and iOS simulator documentation.
