    Hello,

    I run into problems when trying to deploy my app on my iPad 3. I keep getting the error that my device is not in my provisioning profile. But when I check in the apple development center I clearly can see that my device is linked to the provisioning profile and it is included in the provisioning file. Somehow the appbuildering extension seems not to see it correctly....

    Any thoughts? or help?

    Hi Marco,

    We are sorry for the inconvenience. There are two things that might be happening currently. You can find the possible culprits and the workarounds for them below.

    The device identifier you have entered in the provisioning profile is not the actual UDID
    Users have reported a similar problem where they have retrieved the UDID not via iTunes but from a third-party tool.

    You might want to double-check the UDID following these steps:
    1. Connect the device to your system.
    2. In iTunes, click the device button in the menu bar.
    3. In the device info pane, click Serial Number to switch to Identifier (UDID).
    4. In AppBuilder, go to Options -> Mobile -> Mobile Provisions.
    5. Select your provisioning profile and view the devices list. Check if the list of UDIDs contains the UDID you're seeing in iTunes.
    6. If it's not, you need to add it to your account in the iOS Dev Center, update the provisioning profile, and reimport it in AppBuilder.
    7. Rebuild the IPA.

    The device pairing in AppBuilder is corrupted
    Sometimes the device pairing is not initialized properly and you might be unable to deploy on device. To correct the device pairing and recreate it, follow these steps.
    1. Select AppBuilder -> Options -> iOS.
    2. In the Paired Devices panel, click Reset and confirm the operation.
    3. Click Save (this is essential).
    4. Reconnect your device.
    5. Try Build and Deploy again.

    Don't hesitate to let us know if you need further help. Thanks!

    Thanks! Indeed I used a third party tool on my ipad and that gave the wrong UUID...?? This part is solved, however I ran into other issues, maybe I need to redo all the steps in the apple dev center.....

    Hi Marco,

    As pointed out in my previous reply, fixing the UDID indeed has many consequences. Basically, what you need to do is the following.
    1. In the iOS Developer Center, register the device.
    2. In the iOS Developer Center, add the UDID to the provisioning profile and re-generate it.
    3. From the iOS Developer Center, download the updated provisioning profile.
    4. In AppBuilder, remove the old provisioning profile as it will be no longer valid.
    5. In AppBuilder, import the re-generated provisioning profile.
    6. Rebuild your app using the new provisioning profile.

    Alternatively, you can create a completely new provisioning profile.
