    Hello,

    Firstly, let me clarify that AppManager is a private app distribution solution and is an alternative to the Apple App Store. I believe you meant that you are developing an application with Telerik AppBuilder and you want to submit it to the Apple App Store.

    To submit an app to the Apple App Store yourself, you will need to first build it in release mode with the appropriate AppStore provisioning profile. Submitting this app build to the Apple App Store can be done only from a Mac. There are detailed instructions in the iOS Developer Library here.

    If you have the Telerik Platform Professional or Business subscriptions you can even upload your app to the App Store directly from AppBuilder. This is described in this documentation article.

    Let me know if you have any questions.

    Hello Martin,

    Thank you for your reply, i am new to Telerik programs so yes i misinterpret AppBuilder.I followed the instructions but i got stuck at the step where i need to import provisioning profile. I have one on my apple developer account but after i downloaded it, the AppBuilder seems fail to import it because of the file type difference. The profile that i dowloaded from apple account is *.mobileprovision but AppBuilder looks for *.p12 I must be doing something wrong. I hope these details can provide enough information to help me. : )

    Hello,

    I am not sure which client you are using, but basically for iOS code signing you need two things - a certificate (cryptographic identities) and a provisioning profile connected to it. In the AppBuilder options, there are two sections for the two needed files. I have attached an image showing this.

    For the cryptographic identities you need to import a p.12 file of a certificate if you have one. If you don't have one, you must create a certificate signing request or a .csr and create a certificate from it in the iOS dev center. This process is explained here.

    On the provisioning profile section, you need to provide a .mobileprovision file that is connected to the certificate you uploaded. They must match.

    I hope this information is helpful.

    Hello again Martin,

    Thank you for your reply. I am using Mobile Web Client if that's what you're asking. I already have successfully manage to do the steps where i needed to create certificates and provisions earlier. But the problem occurs when i try to publish and build my app. When i select AppStore in publish section this shows up. When i initiate import button this panel shows up and here are my mobile provisions. As you can see, i have a certificate (cryptographic identities) and a provisioning profile connected to it. The point where i want you to guide me is the publishing step where my provision does not appears. 

    Thank you for your efforts, i hope we can work this out because my due date is getting closer each minute : ) Cheers.

    Hey Martin,

    Thank you for your reply. I am using Mobile Web Client if that's what you're asking. I already have a certificate (cryptographic identities) and a provisioning profile connected to it. But the problem starts right here. As you can see, it says there are no provisions. When i initiate the import button this shows up which indicates that i have my certificate and this is the mobile provision i want to work with. I tried creating new certificates and provisions a couple of times but all resulted the same way. I still couldn't find any link or tutorial that explains this problem. I really appreciate if you can provide me one or anything else i can follow. My due date is getting closer each minute : )

    Hi,

    The first two image links in your ticket are the same. I think you did not link the second one correctly. However, I noticed where the problem lies in. As you can see on the Publish window there is a block on the left that says "Provision types: App Store". This means that in order to publish your app to an app store, you need to sign it with an App Store provisioning profile. At the same time on the third image I see that you have four Development provisioning profiles. Go to the iOS Dev Center and create an App Store Provisioning profile and an App Store certificate. Upload it to AppBuilder and you will be able to publish your app.

    I hope this helps.

    Hi Rehana,

    As I understand you have completed the guidelines on Step 1: Create a cryptographic identity and
     Step 3: Add the provisioning profile in AppBuilder.
    Is the added one listed when you select Options -> iOS -> Mobile Provisions along with the respective Cryptographic identity (​Options -> iOS → Cryptographic Identities)? Please note it requires a .p12 file and not the .cer file.

    Just to clarify, the Cryptographic Identity is a pair of matching public key certificate and private key and it is represented by the Personal Information Exchange format (PFX, also called PKCS #12) which supports secure storage of certificates, private keys, and all certificates in a certification path. It is the only file format that can be used to export a certificate and its private key. This is also explained in the topic on Converting a developer certificate into a P12 file.

    The complete workflows for creating each type of provisioning profile-cryptographic identity combo is covered in the Create and Install Certificate and Provisioning Profile for iOS Development tutorial.

    Would you please confirm you completed those guidelines and the required files are presented when checking the Options of AppBuilder?
