Xcode provisioning profiles not updating
Additionally you get an email notification every time a build gets uploaded to cancel the submission even before your app gets into the review stage.
Development and Ad Hoc Profiles In general those profiles are harmless as they can only be used to install a signed application on a small subset of devices.
You have to manually renew and download the latest set of provisioning profiles every time you add a new device or a certificate expires.
Additionally this requires spending a lot of time when setting up a new machine that will build your app.
What if there was a central place where your code signing identity and profiles are kept, so anyone can access them during the build process?
This way, your entire team can use the same account and have one code signing identity without any manual work or confusion.
When deploying an app to the App Store, a beta testing service or even installing it on a single device, most development teams have separate code signing identities for every member.
This results in dozens of profiles including a lot of duplicates.
Okay, everything about provisioning profiles is a pain.It assures that your app can be trusted and hasn’t been modified since it was last signed.See Apple’s docs for more general details on code signing.This pain is amplified once you add a continuous integration environment into the mix.When you add to that a white-label platform like ours with a ton of apps building in it, things get very frustrating.
