How to create a new app using existing Dev & Dist certificates

Jan 31, 2012 8:17 AM

Tags: #apple #distribution #certificates #development #access #viewer #p12 #keychain

Okay, I have already created one app that has been approved by Apple. Now we're ready to create a second app and we're trying to create the .p12 certificates using the existing Apple Dev and Dist Certificates. For some reason we can not get the .p12 certificates for the new app to link up with the existing Apple Dev and Dist certificates. I don't understand what I'm missing. Any help would be appreciated. Thanks!

    There’s nothing new to create. Use the same ones.

    You keep using the same .P12 dev and distri for all your apps, as said Bob

     

    You just have to re create an new app ID, Mobile provisions, and CER for the new app

    You must have 2 folders with the following :

     

    Dev:

    aps developer identify.CER

    CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningReq

    Certificats.P12 (already created for your previous app)

    Certificats Push Dev.P12

    Mobile Provision

     

    Distri

    aps prodution identify.CER

    CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningReq

    Certificats distri.P12 (already created for your previous app)

    Certificats Push Prod/distri.P12

    Mobile Provision

     

     

    Try, you will know quickly if you havent do it well

    To repeat, you can use the same .p12 certificates (development and distribution) for multiple apps. For each app, you need to create a new App ID in the Apple developer site, and you need to create new mobileprovision files (development and distribution) for each App ID.

     

    Minia mentioned the .cer files and the certificate signing request files, but those are necessary only to create the .p12 certs. You don't actually specify those files in the Viewer Builder.

    For some reason the whole certificate process confuses me too...I'm in a smiliar situation as jblay. We've completed our first app and everything seems to be working fine. It was a single-viewer folio.

     

    Now, we are moving on to a multi-folio viewer.

     

    Can someone verify if I am correct...

     

    I can use the same certificates that we used with the single-viewer app, plus "new" push P12 Production/Developer certificates, if we want that function.

     

    Thanks!

    When you create the new app, you'll want to use a different Adobe ID for the Title ID field in Viewer Builder and when you create folios. Use the Account Admin tool to assign an Adobe ID an application role.

     

    For the Apple certificates, you need to create a new App ID, new push certificates, and new mobileprovision files, but you can use the same .p12 development and distribution certificates for all your apps.
