update_provisioning_profile_specifier plugin

Getting Started

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

About update_provisioning_profile_specifier

Update the provisioning profile in the Xcode Project file for a specified target

Xcode 8 added a PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER build setting that is (apparently) required at build-time (even with Automatic Codesigning disabled). I have several branded versions of the apps that I work on and most of the changes are scripted to be done during the build phase (change the app ID, provisioning profile, team, etc.). With previous versions of Xcode, I was able to sign the apps with whatever provisioning profile I wanted, but with Xcode 8 that doesn't work anymore. This plugin allows you to change the PROVISIONING_PROFILE_SPECIFIER in your Xcode project so that you can continue to script changes to be made a build time and use whatever provisioning profile you like without having to maintain separate targets with separate provisioning profile specifiers.


Check out the example Fastfile to see how to use this plugin. Try it by cloning the repo, running fastlane install_plugins and bundle exec fastlane test.
