I’m confused with the combination of Workflow steps I need.
What I want to do is to distribute a version to external testers. Currently I have fastlane and Deploy to Bitrise.io steps. But there was no Apps generated when I checked the Apps & Artifacts tab after a successful build.
I’m not quite sure where it went wrong. Is it because I set the fastlane export method to
app-store? If it’s wrong, what should I put?
Update 1: I then tried to upload the development code signing certs and profiles, then changed the export method to
develop, but it is still says “No apps generated…”
Update 2: I changed the Deploy directory to where the ipa file is located
/Users/vagrant/git. Now I see there are some files in the Apps & Artifacts, but the ipa to download is not there.
Update 3: Hooray, finally able to upload the IPA! I realized there is a
clean_build_artifacts final step in our Fastfile that removes artifacts before it even gets uploaded by the Deploy to Bitrise.io. When we compile locally using fastlane, we use
pilot to upload to Testflight, before clean_build_artifiacts, so there’s no issue. But since moving to Bitrise and trying out Deploy to Bitrise.io, we removed pilot, but we forgot to remove clean_build_artificats, that’s all.
