Extensibility Configurations in life time failed for mobile app icon
Application Type
Service Studio Version
11.8.1 (Build 24074)
Platform Version
11.8.1 (Build 15399)

I am working for generating custom mobile app icons for different environment by overriding the Extensibility Configurations json  data for the app icon in the life time settings.

The app icon generation is successful (android/iphone) when I configured  json in home module of the mobile application. But when i tried to put the same json in the life time custom configuration it  is throwing error.

"Failed to deserialize JSON to REST_ErrorRecord:

The uploaded json data is valid and the problem arises only if add "icons" tag

Unexpected character encountered while parsing value: <. Path '', line 0, position 0."

Life time version - > 

11.6.0 (Build 506)


Hi Sabeeb,

I had the same error. After reporting to OutSystems they referred to it as a bug in Lifetime. That happens when the json is bigger than a certain number of chars. 

To "fix" that error, I minimized the JSON using jsonminifier. Most of the times it worked. Newer versions of Lifetime have that bug fixed.
