Duplicate SHA1 Files in EAS Build


I have posted a an Android update with EAS build to the play store and everything went as expected. However when I download a copy my Maps do not show. In most cases this is API key related, which I checked, and then I spotted that my ad hoc build and my app store build share the same SHA1 fingerprint record in EAS Build, and that value is used to sign my API keys for google maps (Ad Hoc and Dev / local builds work just fine) which do not work

Should these values be unique?

I will answer my own question in case anyone is searching for the same problem: I had to retrieve the production SHA 1 fingerprint from Google playstore directly - and use this with my Maps API key, then everything worked just fine.

Thanks for the help Chat GPT - ha ha ha
