If you want to develop your Monaca app in both Monaca Cloud IDE and Xcode on your Mac OS X, you will need to synchronize the build settings (private keys and certificates) of the app you use in these two environments.
In this page, we will show you how to:
In case you’ve already had your build settings (private keys and certificates) in your Mac OS X (Xcode) and you want to export them to Monaca Cloud IDE, please do as follows:
In order to export the private key in Keychain Access, please follow the instruction below:
In your Mac OS X, go to Applications → Utilities → Keychain Access .
Certificates on the left panel of the Keychain Access window.
Right-click on the certificate you want to export and select Export “CERTIFICATE NAME”. Please make sure to choose the certificate that has a private key. Only the certificate which has a private key can be imported into Monaca.
Then, the export screen will be displayed. Let’s save it as a
private key by selecting the file format as
Personal Information Exchange (.p12), then click Save.
Enter a password for this private key, and then click OK. By doing
so, a private key file with extension of
.p12 will be created.
Please take note of this password since you will need it when
importing this file into Monaca Cloud IDE later.
Now, right-click on the certificate you want to export again and
select Export “CERTIFICATE NAME”. This time, we are going to save it
as a certificate by selecting the file format as
Certificate (.cer), and then click Save.
In order to import the private key and certificate in Monaca Cloud IDE, please follow the instruction below:
From the Monaca Cloud IDE menu, go to Configure → iOS Build Settings . Then, click on Import.
Browse the private key file (
.p12 file) and enter the password for
that key. Then click Import.
Register Issued Certificate section, click on Upload Certificate
button to upload either developer or distribution
certificates corresponding to the imported private key.
Browse the certificate file (
.cer file) and then upload it.
In order to export the private key and certificate from Monaca Cloud IDE, please follow the instruction below:
Certificates registered in Monaca section, click on the
Export icon of the certificate you want.
Then, you will be ask to input a password before exporting. Please note to remember this password because it is required when importing this certificate later.
After clicking Export button, you will then be able to download a
.p12 extension (Ex:
file consists of a private key and a certificate.
Double-click on the downloaded file. Then, you will be asked to input the password for the file and click OK. After that you can use the private key and certificate in Xcode.
