The best way to update WURFL’s device data is using the WURFL Updater feature included in WURFL OnSite
and WURFL InFuze
. Instructions for configuring WURFL Updater are found in your product’s User Guide
. After configuration, the Updater will automatically check for and retrieve the latest device data from your my.scientiamobile.com at the frequency you specify.
To configure the WURFL Updater
, you need to be a paying customer with a my.scientiamobile.com account. In my.scientiamobile.com, under My Account > View Account (for your subscribed product) > WURFL Snapshot, you will see a customized WURFL Snapshot URL that is inserted into the WURFL Updater.
A new device data snapshot is released weekly on Sunday night. An out-of-band snapshot may be released to our customers between weekly snapshots in case of a significant improvement to the data (for example, if a high-profile device is released mid- week and it is not yet in WURFL).
Cloud-based products (WURFL.js
and WURFL Cloud
) automatically receive the latest device data and no configuration or update is required. WURFL Microservice for AWS
and WURFL Microservice for Docker
also automatically update with no additional configuration required.
