Development build succeeds, but production fails

Hi all,

my eas builds succeed with my development profile but fail for production. Same on EAS as well as --local (same behavior for prod and dev)

  • managed workflow
  • eas-cli/2.8.0 darwin-arm64 node-v16.15.0

eas.json

{
  "build": {
    "development": {
      "developmentClient": true,
      "distribution": "internal",
      "ios": {
        "simulator": true
      },
      "android": {
        "buildType": "apk"
      }
    },
    "production": {},
    "dev-device": {
      "developmentClient": true,
      "distribution": "internal",
      "android": {
        "buildType": "apk"
      }
    },
    "build": {}
  },
  "cli": {
    "version": ">= 0.48.2"
  }
}

The error I am getting when the build fails doesn’t help at all. The section that looks like it could prompt me towards the error is blank: it literally stops after “This must be a bug with” outputting only blanks

  • I’ve tried export NODE_OPTIONS=“–max-old-space-size=4096” in case this was a memory error, no success
  • local successful build; eas build --profile development --platform ios --local
  • local failed build: eas build --profile production --platform ios --local
  • same for both EAS versions without the --local flag

Any updates on this? I am also having the same issue today.

me too

Also having this issue. Any luck?

Hi we have the same problem we can build for development but fail for production

Hi! Can you share the link of your build that is failing? Feel free to create a new post in the forums. sharing the link will only be available to Expo team members.
