iOS deploy issue using EAS deploy

Hi Team,

We recently purchased an EAS priority plan to deploy our iOS build to the App store. We went through Submitting to the Apple App Store - Expo Documentation documentation and set up ios Build deploy from a local windows machine.
Step 1: Build the ios bundle using expo
Step 2: Setup 2-factor authentication in the App store.
Step 3: Generated " APP-SPECIFIC PASSWORDS" in app store
Step 4: Created the local environment variable “FASTLANE_APPLE_APPLICATION_SPECIFIC_PASSWORD” and set the value whichever was generated in Step 3.
Step 5: Ran below command
"eas submit --platform ios --url

However, the build failed with the below log message:

> *Something went wrong when submitting your app to Apple App Store.*
> *We couldn't figure out what went wrong. Please see logs to learn more.*
> *[logs] Starting iOS app upload*

We tried restarting the machine, we tried created secret variable in our expo account naming “FASTLANE_APPLE_APPLICATION_SPECIFIC_PASSWORD” . No luck.

  • Machine - Local
  • Environment - Windows 10

Requesting for your assistance.

Thanks and Regards,

The eas submit requires the EXPO_APPLE_APP_SPECIFIC_PASSWORD environment variable. The fastlane one is set automatically on EAS Submission worker based on that flag.
