Creating an iOS certificate set

Version:

To build a mobile app for the iOS platform, you must create a certificate set in the App Studio .

If you select a wildcard provisioning file to use, you must also specify the App ID for the mobile app. In addition, neither the push notification certificate nor the widget provisioning file will be available in the certificate set. If you select a provisioning profile that already has push notifications configured for use, the App ID for the app is already defined and the field will be read-only in the certificate set. However, you will be able to set up a push notification certificate and the widget provisioning file.
Open the mobile channel interface.
  1. In the Build your application panel, select the iOS switch.

  2. In the Certificate set section, click New to add a new certificate set.

  3. Set up a mobile provisioning file:

    • If a mobile provisioning file does not exist, click New to upload a provisioning file. For more information, see Uploading a provisioning profile.
    • If a mobile provisioning file already exists, select one from the Mobile Provisioning file list.
  4. If in the previous step you set up a wildcard provisioning profile, in the App ID (Bundle ID) field, enter the unique bundle identifier for the iOS app.

  5. Set up a signing certificate:

    • If a certificate set does not exist, click New and follow the steps of Uploading a signing certificate.
    • If a signing certificate already exists, select one from the Signing certificate list.
  6. If in step 6 you set up a Push Notification provisioning profile, enable push notifications:

    • If the push notifications certificate does not exist, upload a push notification certificate. For more information, see Uploading a push notifications certificate.
    • If the push notifications certificate already exists, select one from the Push Notification certificate list.
  7. If you plan to use the Today widget, set up a widget provisioning file:

    • If a widget provisioning file does not exist, click New to upload a widget provisioning file. For more information, see Uploading a widget provisioning profile.
    • If a widget provisioning file already exists, select one from the Widget Provisioning file list.
  8. Click Submit.
