iOS Build: Target not found: BlueprintIdentifier

Bitrise Build Issue Report template

Description of the issue

The build fails with target not found: [correct BlueprintIdentifier from scheme] in the Exporting ipa with ExportOptions.plist section. This error is not helpful to me. Where is the target not found? It is the correct BlueprintIdentifier as defined in xcscheme file.


Where did the issue happen?

Bitrise: standard machine

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

Xcode Archive and Export


  • 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? : every time
  • Does upgrading the build Step to the latest version help? : NO
  • When did the issue start? : once I added the target

Thank you fehersanyi-bitrise

could you try with v. 2.4.17 xcode archive?
and if that does not work, could you please send us the xcworkspace and the xcodeproj files?

That build did fail too.

Here are our xcworkspace and the xcodeproj files

are you using xcode 9.4 locally as well?
could it be that You are using v 10.0.0?

yes, I am using 10.1 locally, now I tried 10.1 on bitrise too and it fails as well:

Hello there!

Sorry for the late response!

Did you managed to solve it since?
if not, could you please send us the xcworkspace and xcodeproj files.
also is it a native iOS project or a React Native?
