Missing Provisioning Profile when archiving in XCode...

  • I'm getting the following error when I Archive my project in Xcode for distribution in the App Store:

    App Store Connect Operation Error

    ERROR ITMS-90174: "Missing Provisioning Profile - Apps must contain a provisioning profile in a file named embedded.mobileprovision."

    I don't know what the issue is, but it states it's something to do with the package ID or Provisioning Profiles. However the package ID is correct and has not changed and the Provisioning Profile (Distribution) exists.

    I'm not creating a new app, but am updating an existing one and have managed to update it previously without this error.

    When I archive it, the review pop-up shows the following:

    SUMMARY

    Team: my name

    Certificate: iOS Distribution (Expires 13/11/2018)

    Profile: None

    Symbols: Included

    Architectures: armv7 and arm64

    So it looks like the provisioning profile isn't matching up for some reason.

    Ashley - any idea with this?

    Thanks all :)

  • I'm not sure what the issue is/was but I found a similar issue being discussed online and the workaround is to do the following:

    In Xcode, goto: file > workspace settings > under Build System select Legacy Build System > then Archive as usual.

    This fixes the issue, but I'm not sure why the issue arose in the first place.
