Local reproduction

NO - only on bitrise.

If possible please note which sections you tried.

Local reproduction: Linux / Android (docker based) stack builds

Can it be reproduced by running the build locally, after doing a new git clone of the repository into the /tmp directory and running the build from there with the Bitrise CLI ( Bitrise CLI )? If no, can it be reproduced with Docker (using the same docker images / environment we use on Related guide: Redirecting… .

Unfortunately I have the same issue on my workflow that had always worked and now is broken.

I Have managed to go deeper into the issue and I believe it’s a problem with codesigning in xcode archive generation step:

  1. I deleted all certificates and provisioning profiles and updated all to Apple Distribution and Apple Development

  2. I created an exportOptions.plist that is in my folder

  3. I’ve specified wherever possible my correct parameters: app-store + Release

Unfortunately the step generates and Archive with this data (below) that results in the missing file Info.plist necessary to create a signed .ipa and deliver it via Deliver step.

team: [REDACTED]
profile: Bitrise ios development -  [REDACTED]
export: development
xcode managed profile: false (Actually in my project it’s set to automatic)

Could anyone please help me?
