You can request to publish your hub-connected integration to the SmartThings app once you have completed testing.

In the Publish menu of your Developer Workspace project, click Publish Request.

SmartThings-compatible device

In the SmartThings-compatible tab, click START A NEW REQUEST.

  • Select an approved Brand from the dropdown list. Learn more.
  • Select at least one Device Handler from the dropdown list. You previously created these with the SmartThings Groovy IDE.
  • Click NEXT.

Publish Device Handler

  • Several publish options are available on the next screen.
    • To publish a new Device Handler and any new products associated with it, add each Product to the request.
      • Products that can be selected will have the status Never Published or Published with Pending Updates. A product's status can be viewed on the Product Info page.
    • To submit changes you have made to a Device Handler (without selecting a product), you can leave the Product area blank. This applies in the following cases:
      • You have changed the Device Handler code without adding a new fingerprint.
      • You have removed the fingerprint of a product from a Device Handler and added it to another Device Handler. In this case, you must submit both Device Handlers.
  • Fill in the Additional Info for your request.
    • Enter your official Support Website Address.
    • Enter your official Support Email Address.
    • Enter the Planned Publish Date (based on UTC), which is the date of the market launch of the device.

    • Enter the Device Location that you associated with your devices in the SmartThings app. The SmartThings team uses this to test your device.
  • Click SUBMIT.

Approval for SmartThings-compatible devices is provided in 2 business weeks.
