Cannot filter anymore by releaseChannel if using channel


Using Builds — @xpedigo_obibox-fo..., it looks like filtering by channel is not available.

It will be nice to have to have it we were using it a lot.


Hi @xpedigo

I haven’t used EAS Update yet, but step 5 in the docs (see below) seems to say that you can use release channels?

Configure your project

5. To allow updates to apply to builds built with EAS, update your EAS build profiles in eas.json to include channel properties. These channels should replace any releaseChannel properties. We find it convenient to name the channel after the profile’s name. For instance, the preview profile has a channel named "preview" and the production profile has a channel named "production" .

  "build": {
    "development": {
      "developmentClient": true,
      "distribution": "internal"
    "preview": {
      "distribution": "internal",
      "channel": "preview"
    "production": {
      "channel": "production"

Hi @wodin no you cannot use releaseChannel attribute in combination with the channel attribute which is mandatory for eas update.

For this reason we are unable to filter by releaseChannel on the dashboard as it does not exists in our eas.json as it’s replaced by « channel » attribute due to eas requirement .

It would be nice then to be able to filter by « channel » as well.


Any news on this?

Maybe try going to the builds page and clicking on the feedback button on the bottom of the page

ok thx

Thank you for raising this issue. We have created an internal task to follow up on this.
