Build ipa through Expo requires p8 file even when Apple Push Notifications service is not used.

Hi Expo,

I have created a ReactNative app, now my client wants to distribute the iOS app to his testers via Diawi.
My application does not use Push notifications service, but while building ipa, Expo asks for p8 file. Can please suggest why it is so? Is there any other way out?

Please help me resolve this issue. Nothing found in the research over Internet.

Will appreciate immediate help. Thanks in advance.


Hey @jaswinder,

As of now, you’ll have to provide a push key. In the future we may make it where a push key is not needed, but we’re not working on that actively.
