Provider imported new version of APS application which already exists in POA.

The new version of APS application was treated as a new application rather than the new version of the same application.

The new version of APS package is displayed as a new application in POA Provider Control Panel at Service Director > Application Manager > Applications rather than on the Versions tab of the application.


The APS publisher declared a new Application ID in the APP-META.xml file in the new version of the package. Therefore, in accordance with APS Format Specification it is treated as the new application rather than a new version of the existing application:

5.1.1. Application ID

Example - <id></id>

URI-formed unique application identifier. This string should be used as a application identifier - it MUST NOT be changed in consequent versions of packages, otherwise package upgrade and patch from older versions will be not feasible. This URI may or may not lead to any valid page.


The application publisher has to re-pack the new version of the APS application with correct Application ID. Then, Provider may import the new version of the applcation in POA Application Manager.
