Distributing Velocity Configurations

Use Avalanche to distribute Velocity configuration files to your Android devices. After initially setting up Avalanche and Velocity, you can deploy configuration files to Avalanche directly from the Velocity console. If a configuration file is modified, all file payloads using the configuration file will be automatically updated and flagged for deployment in Avalanche.

This process does not work on Android 10 devices. For information about distributing Velocity configurations to Android 10 devices, see Distributing Velocity Configuration Manifests.

The set up process will require access to the Velocity console and administrative access to the Avalanche console.
