Build timeout for a basic react native workflow on the Xcode Archive & Export step

Bitrise Build Issue Report template

Description of the issue

I have a basic react native workflow only for IOS. I am able to successfully run it locally via the bitrise cli. When running build in the bitrise GUI, I get a timeout. Locally the full process takes around 13 minutes. I even removed tests, to ensure only the bare-minimum steps run:

git clone → npm install → pod install → bump version number → get signing and provisioning → xcode archive → upload to bitrise

It times out on the “xcode archive and export for iOS” step, consistently. Does this mean that the free tier isn’t sufficient to run this basic flow, or could there be an issue with the configuration? I have also tried adding caching.


development, React Native


  • Does a “Rebuild” help? (You can trigger a rebuild from the Build’s page, by clicking the “Rebuild” button in the top right corner of a finished build) : NO
  • Does a rebuild without caches help? (You can remove the Cache:Pull and Cache:Push steps temporarily to not to use the cache, or you can delete all the caches on the Settings tab of the app. : NO
  • Does the issue happen sporadically, or every time? : Everytime
  • Does upgrading the build Step to the latest version help? : NO
  • When did the issue start? : From initial attempts after trying out bitrise

Local reproduction

Works fine locally, builds in ~13 minutes.

PS I also referred a friend, and the dash has misleading information. It claims I would get 15 minutes / build for a referral, currently in my referral tab, but it only gave me 5 minutes extra :frowning: below is a screenshot of this:

Hi @vicfrolov,

Really sorry about the late reply here. Unfortunately iOS builds can take a long time, and it’s not unexpected for builds to take about 2x-3x on Bitrise’s clean CI environment, compared to builds that run in your prepared, local environment.

If you’d still like to get this working, we’re happy to take a look and see what we can optimize.

The referral picture is indeed misleading unfortunately. The original hobby plan time limit was 10 minutes in total. So the display on the screenshot is actually displaying total build time, instead of bonus received.
