Build iOS app for simulator for Ionic Cordova App

I added the step Xcode Build for iOS Simulator to my workflow in a Ionic build workflow.

The apps build successful…

What I’m. doing wrong?

Hi @MrSparklle,

Sorry for the long delay!

Can you please paste here the log file or the URL to the build in question?

@bitce

The complete log:
https://pastebin.com/y2EmdCry

The error occurs in line 1984 and below.

Hi @MrSparklle,
Thanks for the logs! Could you check if the scheme that you are using in the xcode-build-for-simulator step is shared?

@tamasbazsonyi

It’s not me that I create or share the schemes in a Cordova Project. When Ionic builds the Cordova creates it automatically. Just for sure, I opened that project in my local Xcode to check if the scheme has been shared. And yes, it is shared, the corresponding checkbox is checked.

I also run this command:

xcodebuild -list
Information about project "Algarve":
    Targets:
        Algarve

    Build Configurations:
        Debug
        Release

    If no build configuration is specified and -scheme is not passed then "Release" is used.

    Schemes:
        Algarve
        Cordova
        CordovaLib

Hi @MrSparklle !

We will release a patch for the step in this week for this issue.

Hi @MrSparklle !

We have released the patch for the step (0.9.1)
Could you please wire it in and try again?

Thanks @BirmacherAkos

I will. When the 0.9.1 be available to select in the workflow step?

The webpage is caching the steps library, this is why you can’t see the new version of the step.
( This could be really annoying sometimes but this helps to load the workflow editor faster :smiley: )

In Google Chrome you can force refresh the page by the command + shift + r key combination.

Or you can use the browser’s incognito mode.

@BirmacherAkos

Tried to build with 0.9.1 unsuccessfully.

Could you please enable support user under the app’s settings tab? Also please copy here the build’s url here.

@tamasbazsonyi

Shared support enabled.

Hi!

It seems the problem is, that the “Inoic Archive” step will generate non-shared schemes in the generated iOS .xcodeproject.
And the “Xcode Build for simulator” step wants to use the shared scheme and this is why it’s failing.

I have created a ticket for the Tooling Team and they will fix it.

Ok. I will be waiting for a solution.

Hi @MrSparklle !

We will release a patch today (0.9.2)
In the new patch the step will check the user schemes too for the artifact export.

Could you please wire it in and try again?

Thank you very much.

Glad to hear it worked.

Happy Building! :rocket:
