Custom legato application doesnt start from boot

Hi There ,
I am trying to add a custom legato application whose binary file is called in the adef file and both the binary and .adef file are copied in legato-18.09.0/apps/platformServices in order to add the application to my custom system/framework I have added following line in default.sdef file
$LEGATO_ROOT/apps/platformServices/APP_NAME
But with the above additions i just have the application copied into the framework but the application doesn’t start from boot even though i have mentioned start:auto in the .adef file . {with manual input “app start APP_NAME” the application works well}
Can someone help me in overcoming this issue ??
Legato version used : 18.09.0

@akshaysk,

  • What does your custom app? maybe because it depends for another service.
  • Why you didn’t add you custom app under $LEGATO_ROOT/apps/sample?
  • Are you tried to add you app separately? what happens if you do that?

Regards

Hi @mehdiALL1,
Thanks for responding to my query . below are my answers for the question you asked
What does your custom app? maybe because it depends for another service.
–> My custom application just gets data from UART

Why you didn’t add you custom app under $LEGATO_ROOT/apps/sample ?
–> I was pretty new to legato framework so i just followed the default.sdef so that is the reason why i have my app in $LEGATO_ROOT/apps/platformServices/APP_NAME , Hope there is nothing wrong in it

Are you tried to add you app separately? what happens if you do that?
–> If i add the application manually the auto:start option works perfectly . Issue arises when i try the sdef method .

Thanks & Regards
