How to share access to your software for judging
Provide the requested information in the relevant field(s) on your submission form. Here’s how you can share access to the different components:
Applications: If there are app(s) in your solution, invite the service user QBHackathon2020@quickbase.com to your realm and as an admin to all the Quick Base apps involved in your solution. Access will be used only for solution review and testing.
Add-On Code: Your code repository may be public or private. If public, include a link to your solution code on GitHub or another code repository sharing service. If private, access must be given to firstname.lastname@example.org and QBHackathon2020@quickbase.com. Code will be used only for solution review and testing. Include deployment files and testing instructions needed for testing your solution.
Pipelines: If you have Pipeline(s) in your solution, your submission should include the CSR code for all pipelines. The steps below will show you how to access the CSR code:
Step 1. Go to your Pipelines dashboard
Step 2. Under your account in the upper right corner, expand the dropdown and from there select “My Preferences”
Step 3. Go to the “Care Access” tab
Step 4. Allow CSR access
Step 5. Copy the numbers shown and add it to your submission. This will allow a judge to access your pipelines. In the example, the CSR code is 59256762#19149.
