Hi team,

Thank you for delivering the high quality on this great plug-in.

I found it seems not working on PWA iPhone8, with iOS 13.3.1 and the latest Personal env.

Do you have any solution idea?

I just followed the typical Jump Start script to make a Product Catalog app.

Then scanned the QR code on the Distribute tab in the Solution Studio.

The app is working well as PWA, EXCEPT QR code scanning. No action will happen even though I clicked the QRCode icon.

(already Disable Web SQL is off. https://success.outsystems.com/Documentation/11/Delivering_Mobile_Apps/Early_Access_-_Distribute_as_a_progressive_web_app_(PWA)?utm_source=ost-outsystems%20tools&utm_medium=ost-servicestudio&utm_campaign=ost-docrouter&utm_content=ost-helpid-30231&utm_term=ost-contextualhelp#PWA_in_iOS)

Hi Akira,

Are you sure your IPA generated correctly.
Could you please try again to regenerate the IPA.



Hi Salman! 

Thanks for your reply.

Just to be clear, you mean I need to build an ipa file even it’s a test as PWA, correct?

The right QR code is the uri to use the app as PWA, and seems it doesn't need to build ipa file.image.png

Thanks and Regards,


Hey Akira,

QR code scanner is not yet available for PWA. We're working on having a PWA compatible version soon, together with a location component.

Regarding PWA, you do not need to generate an IPA file. Those are two distribution channels. You can enable PWA distribution mode without generating a native build.
