remove_provisioning_profile plugin

fastlane Plugin Badge Build Status codebeat badge

Getting Started

This project is a fastlane plugin. To get started with fastlane-plugin-remove_provisioning_profile, add it to your project by running:

fastlane add_plugin remove_provisioning_profile

About remove_provisioning_profile

The initial use case for the plugin has been discussed in fastlane issue. When match or developer adds new provision profile Xcode still keeps the old one even if the developer doesn't need it anymore. In that case this plugin could help by removing these old or unused provisioning profiles.

Available options

  • :app_identifier - the app identifier
  • :type - provisioning profile type, supported values ["development", "adhoc", "appstore"]


Example to run the action

remove_provisioning_profile(app_identifier: "com.antondomashnev.fastlane-plugin-remove-provisioning-profile", type: "development")

Example lane from our team's fastfile. The lane removes the old provisioning profiles of all types and then runs match to create and load new

desc "Recreate the provisioning profiles so you can deploy to your device, release on fabric and push to app store"
  lane :renew_certificates do
    types = ["development", "adhoc", "appstore"]
    app_identifier = "com.antondomashnev.fastlane-plugin-remove-provisioning-profile"
    types.each do |type|
      remove_provisioning_profile(app_identifier: app_identifier, type: type)
      match(app_identifier: app_identifier, type: type, force: true)
