expo build:ios - Development Provisioning Profile

Is there a way to generate a provisioning profile for development instead of a distribution provisioning profile?

I am trying to upload my .ipa file to my phone using XCode for testing purposes but I keep getting the error “App installation failed: A valid provisioning profile for this executable was not found.”. I see expo is successfully creating a distribution profile but there is not one being created for development. The app I am building is for personal use and I don’t intend on adding it to the App Store.

I have looked through this documentation (https://docs.expo.io/versions/latest/distribution/building-standalone-apps/) and here on the forum but can’t find any mention of how to create a development provisioning profile. There was one forum thread that mentioned something similar but was closed without any answer.

Is this possible or am I missing something?

Any help would be much appreciated. Thanks!

Hey @eschoni,

Unfortunately we don’t provide dev build support on our builders.



Hey Adam,

Thanks for the reply!

That would be awesome if it’s something that could be supported in the future. I am sure there is a huge list of items already in the que but adding dev support would be a nice feature.

Expo is awesome! Thank you and the team for all the hard work!
