Here is a list of commom errors you may face while building or uploading the application to App Store Connect:
minSdkVersion 14 cannot be smaller than version 16 declared in library ["library name"]
Sometimes you may use a Cordova plugin which requires a different API
level configuration from your project’s default settings. For example,
in this case, your default setting for minimum API level is 14
minSdkVersion=14); however, one of your plugins requires API level at
least 16. In other words, the
minSdkVersion value is lower than the
one required by the plugin.
In order to solve this error, you can just correct the value of
minSdkVersion in the
config.xml file as follows:
<preference name="android-minSdkVersion" value="16" />
Provisioning profile "For Debug Build" doesn't include the aps-environment entitlement.
This error means that your current provisioning profile doesn’t have the
right configuration for push notification. In other words, when you are
NIFCloudMB plugins for Cordova 6.5 or later project, this
error will occur if you don’t have the right configuration for push
notification in iOS.
In order to fix this error, please use the right configuration for push notification as follows:
Provisioning profile "profile_xxx" has app ID "com.example.xxx", which does not match the bundle ID "com.example.zzz".
The App ID set for the target project does not match the bundle ID. Please make sure that your AppID setting matches the one in your provisioning profile.
Code Sign error: No matching provisioning profiles found
This might cause by the mismatch/inconsistency in the iOS Build configuration. Please make sure to use the correct AppID with a corresponding certificate and provisioning profile.
Error code 65 for command: xcodebuild
This might cause by the mismatch/inconsistency in the iOS Build configuration. For example: AppID in Provisioning profile not matching with bundle identifier. Please make sure to use the correct AppID with a corresponding certificate and provisioning profile.
