How to update Parse SDK for tvOS

First of all, you have to install the latest version of the Parse SDK for tvOS. You can download it here:

Download Parse SDK for tvOS (Swift or Objective-C)

 

Then, you have to update your app to connect to https://parseapi.back4app.com instead of https://api.parse.com. You need to use one of the codes below depending on the platform you are using to develop:

 

Swift

let configuration = ParseClientConfiguration {
    $0.applicationId = "YOUR_APP_ID"
    $0.clientKey = "YOUR_CLIENT_KEY"
    $0.server = "https://parseapi.back4app.com"
    $0.localDatastoreEnabled = true // If you need to enable local data store
}
Parse.initializeWithConfiguration(configuration)

 

Objective-C

[Parse initializeWithConfiguration:[ParseClientConfiguration configurationWithBlock:^(id<ParseMutableClientConfiguration> configuration) {
   configuration.applicationId = @"YOUR_APP_ID";
   configuration.clientKey = @"YOUR_CLIENT_KEY";
   configuration.server = @"https://parseapi.back4app.com";
   configuration.localDatastoreEnabled = YES; // If you need to enable local data store
}]];

 

It’s done! You only need to publish the new version of your tvOS app!

Once your users have updated the app to the new version, they will start requesting back{4}app’s API instead of parse.com one.

Not updated apps will continue connecting in parse.com API, but DON’T WORRY! It will nicely work until January 28, 2017. Because your database was successfully migrated to back{4}app, both parseapi.back4app.com and api.parse.com will read/update the data into the same database: your new migrated database in the back{4}app’s servers.
