others-what to do when your ios distribution certificate is going to be expired or has been expired?

In this post, I would demonstrate what to do when your ios distribution certificate is going to be expired or has been expired

1.create new csr

open keychains

  • click certificate assistant –> create a certificate from a certificate authority

  • save it to local disk, you should get this file:
    CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningRequest
    



    2. sign in apple developer account, select certificates, identifiers and Profiles

  • click to create new certificates <img src=”https://raw.githubusercontent.com/bswen/pics/main/20220331095229.png” width=50% height=50%>

  • select apple distribution

  • choose your certSigningRequest or csr file

  • download the certificate

You should have two files now:

[email protected] 1 bswen  staff   911B Mar 31 09:42 CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningRequest
[email protected] 1 bswen  staff   1.4K Mar 31 10:35 distribution.cer



3. Install certificate on local machine

double click the distribution.cer or open it in command line:

open distribution.cer



4. Export your ceritifcates to p12

keychain –> my certificates -> right click last installed certificate -> export then you should have three files:

[email protected] 1 bswen  staff   911B Mar 31 09:42 CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningRequest
-rw-r--r--  1 bswen  staff   3.2K Mar 31 10:42 Certificates.p12
[email protected] 1 bswen  staff   1.4K Mar 31 10:35 distribution.cer



5. open xcode, change your ‘code signing’ parameters in the build settings of your project.
