Exporting an unsigned iOS app

After you build a Pega Platform application, you can export a custom mobile app in a form of an unsigned xarchive.zip file. This way, you can sign your custom mobile app locally in a development environment of your choice. When you sign your custom mobile app locally, you do not upload a signing certificate to Pega Platform, and therefore do not violate your company's security policies.

  1. On the Build your application panel, select the iOS switch.
  2. Set up a certificate set for the app:
    • If an unsigned certificate set does not exist, create an unsigned certificate set.
    • If an unsigned certificate set already exists, select an existing unsigned certificate set. You might have to click Modify build to display the list.
  3. Optional: Specify custom mobile app versioning by expanding the App version section:
  4. Optional: Select a specific version of the client.
  5. Click Save.
  6. Click Build now.
Result:  The files are sent to the build server and used to build the iOS app. After the app is built, you can download the xarchive.zip file and sign it locally in a development environment of your choice.
