I saw the other questions about ISV app but to expand on those how does this work for using an AppExchange Test Drive and for Trialforce? We have Skuid in our Developer org but what do we do about Test Drive and Trialforce so we can display our pages there?

If you have applied to be part of the UI Alliance  - we would consider your Test Drive and TrialForce orgs to be developer orgs and would grant you licenses in those spaces, in the same way that Salesforce grants that kind of org to ISV partners for the purpose of packaging up your app.  You should sign up!

Hi ddeveaux, we've just been through that exact process and the Skuid guys have been awesome the whole way. We have a test org, trial template org, and at least one dev org all running Skuid developer licences. The path has been laid out with Salesforce by PractiFi and a few others so there is no issue developing an ISV/OEM app with Skuid.

Yep, I can highly recommend using Skuid for your ISV app. It works just fine with Trialforce and the end-to-end provisioning process.

How does this process work for customers who install our managed package? Do we have to first install Skuid on their new Org and then our package? Or are we able to package Skuid inside of our managed package so that it is one install?

Well, not if they went through Trialforce. Then you just convert. The Trialforce becomes their org. If they add users to your app then you either do have to have someone assign Skuid licenses or, new with the latest Superbank release. tell it to auto grant licenses to new users (based on profiles).

But if you are White label OEM it might be possible that users aren't installing via TF? If not, then you have to install for them yes.

If TF installs the whole package and converts it, then I would imagine we would be fine. I dont think any customers will not start through the trial. Thank you so much for the help. Last question (for now) where do we go about requesting Skuid on test/demo accounts? Would we register them as developer accounts?

The Skuid license process is/will be part of your partner agreement with Skuid. So I'll bump you to them for that if you haven't already become a partner with them.

We have a partner agreement. Just didn't discuss specifics on how that process works. I'll reach out to them directly for that. Thanks again for your help!

Ok. Basically then you just have to keep sending them the Org ID and what kind of org it is and they enable it for you. Since sometimes you don't know the orgs up front, (i.e. you might not have created your TF org yet) it's iterative.

Have to allow for some lead time but so far we get most of ours in 24 hrs. What they currently have you do is to install the Trial, so you can get going on that, and then do the above and the convert it on the backend. They actually said you have to install the trial as there isnt' a way currently to just give you a production link. But Trial is same thing anyway.

Can I check if this still is the case?
