Overview
Signing an application is required from Xcode 8.
The generation wizard proposes several possibilities:
  • Automatic signature: This signature mode is based on a "Provisioning Profile" file, generated by Apple and available in the Apple development portal. The data not specified in the file used is defined by default by Xcode during the compilation.
  • Manual signature: This signature mode is based on two "Provisioning Profile" files (file used for the development and file used for the distribution), generated by Apple and available in the Apple development portal.
  • Signature in XCode: This signature mode is used to perform the signature in Xcode, when compiling the iOS project generated by WINDEV Mobile.
Caution: The manual signature is not supported if your iOS applications are compiled with Xcode 7. In this case, the application will not be generated by Xcode.
Automatic and manual signatures

Overview

The automatic and manual signatures proposed by the wizard require specific files. These files must be downloaded from the Apple development portal (https://developer.apple.com/membercenter/index.action).
  • If you choose the automatic management, a single "Provisioning profile" (distribution OR development) is required.
  • If you choose the manual management, two "Provisioning profile" (distribution AND development) are required. The signature information is more precise.

Files to retrieve

To retrieve the necessary files in the Apple development portal:
  1. See the next page: https://developer.apple.com/membercenter/index.action
  2. Once connected, select the option "Certificates, identifers and profiles".
  3. Click "Provisioning profiles" then the requested type of "profile": Distibution or Development.
  4. Download the requested files corresponding to your application on your PC ("Download" button).

Configuring the signature in the wizard

In the "Signature" step of the wizard for WINDEV Mobile generation:
  1. Select the management mode for the signature.
  2. If you choose the automatic mode:
    • Click "Import" and select the corresponding file.
    • The "Prefix" control is automatically filled.
  3. If you choose the manual mode:
    • Click "Import" and select the file corresponding to the development profile.
    • Click "Import" and select the file corresponding to the distribution profile.
Signing the application in Xcode
If you choose to sign the application in Xcode, the WINDEV Mobile wizard generates the Xcode project corresponding to the iOS application. The operations required to perform the signature are presented in Compiling a WINDEV Mobile project in Xcode.
