Deploy to iTunes Connect - Application Loader fails with "Input error: neither ipa_path nor pkg_path is provided"

Bitrise Build Issue Report template

Description of the issue

I have the step “Deploy to iTunes Connect - Application Loader” right after the step “Xcode Archive & Export for iOS” and I expected the latter would set the variable “$BITRISE_IPA_PATH” properly.
It does not seem to be the case: Step “Deploy to iTunes Connect - Application Loader” errors out with message Input error: neither ipa_path nor pkg_path is provided

Input variable ‘IPA path’ is set to $BITRISE_IPA_PATH


Where did the issue happen?

If on which stack? If not on on what operating system? (Plus any other information you can share)

Which build Step causes the issue and which version of the step?

id: deploy-to-itunesconnect-application-loader |
| version: 0.10.1
