Missing Push Notification Entitlement (Bare workflow!)

I recently ejected from Expo to the bare workflow, and ever since, I’ve been getting this warning upon pushing a new build to App Store Connect:

ITMS-90078: Missing Push Notification Entitlement

There are a lot of other threads in this forum for the same problem - but not for bare projects, which is very different.

I really have no idea what to do here. My app is not using push notifications will never do either. I initially tried disabling push notifications under the app identifier on the apple developer page by unchecking the box, but that didn’t help.

I’m guessing that the code somehow/somewhere uses or references push notifications even though I’m not actively using it. But the code was written by Expo CLI when I ejected so I’m not sure where to start…

What do I do?

Found the solution: I enabled Push Notifications under capabilities in xcode, which created the following file:

<?xml version="1.0" encoding="UTF-8"?>
<!DOCTYPE plist PUBLIC "-//Apple//DTD PLIST 1.0//EN" "http://www.apple.com/DTDs/PropertyList-1.0.dtd">
<plist version="1.0">

in path ios/project-name/ios.entitlements

After that, the warning disappeared. Keep in mind that push notifications need to be enabled under the identifier on the developer account as well.

Thanks for sharing your answer

Make sure to use expo credentials manager to add a push notification key.
