No Maintenance Intended

Xcode 8 does not load unsigned code anymore - see alcatraz/Alcatraz#475, therefore this project is deprecated and only available for historical purposes.

Fixing the Fix Issue button

This Xcode plugin disables the Fix Issue functionality in Xcode. This way, none of your team members can click this button by mistake and might end up revoking existing certificates and provisioning profiles.

Fix Issue


Using fastlane

Add the install_xcode_plugin to your Fastfile. This way, the plugin gets installed for the whole team, so that no one can revoke your certificate by mistake.

lane :xcode do
  install_xcode_plugin(github: '')
fastlane xcode


You can install FixCode using Alcatraz.

First, install Alcatraz using

curl -fsSL | sh
  • Restart Xcode
  • Click on Window
  • Select Package Manager
  • Search and Install FixCode
  • Restart Xcode

What does this do?

The primary goal of this plugin is to disable the original Fix Issue button, as it has side effects, like sometimes revoking your certificates and with it all its provisioning profiles.

This is especially a big problem when working in a bigger team: Someone clicks the Fix Issue button and revokes the other profiles. This includes Enterprise profiles, resulting in breaking the app on all devices it's installed on.

This Xcode plugin will deactivate the button and replace it with emojis. The button will open the official code signing guide.

You might ask yourself, why the button doesn't just run sigh or cert: Check out the blog post about developer tools by Felix Krause for more information about how developer tools should be transparent and show you what they do.
