Generate a Certificate Signing Request (CSR) file (.certSigningRequest). ** You generate a CSR to obtain an iOS developer/distribution certificate. ** You can generate a CSR by using Keychain Access on Mac or OpenSSL on Windows. ** When you generate a CSR you only provide your user name and email address; ** Generating a CSR creates a public key and a private key as well as a *.certSigningRequest file. ** The public key is included in the CSR, and the private key is used to sign the request. ** http://help.adobe.com/en_US/as3/iphone/WS144092a96ffef7cc-371badff126abc17b1f-8000.html ** Open Keychain Access. ** On the Keychain Access menu, select Preferences. ** In the Preferences dialog box, click Certificates ** Set Online Certificate Status Protocol and Certificate Revocation List to Off. ** On the Keychain Access menu, select Certificate Assistant > Request a Certificate from a Certificate Authority. ** Enter the e-mail address and name that matches your iPhone developer account ID. ** Do not enter a CA e-mail address. ** Select Request is Saved to Disk and then click the Continue button. *** Save the file (CertificateSigningRequest.certSigningRequest).
Generate an iOS developer certificate or an iOS distribution certificate (*.cer), as required. ** Note: To deploy an application to a device, you need a developer certificate. To deploy the application to the Apple App Store, you need a distribution certificate.
Generate an iOS developer certificate ** Log in to the iOS Provisioning Portal using your Apple ID, and select the Development tab. ** Click Request Certificate and browse to the CSR file that you generated and saved on your computer (step 3). ** Select the CSR file and click Submit. ** On the Certificates page, click Download. ** Save the downloaded file (*.developer_identity.cer).
Generate an iOS distribution certificate ** Log in to the iOS Provisioning Portal using your Apple ID, and select the Distribution tab ** Click Request Certificate and browse to the CSR file that you generated and saved on your computer (step 3). ** Select the CSR file and click Submit. ** On the Certificates page, click Download. ** Save the downloaded file (*.distribution_identity.cer).
Convert the iOS developer certificate or the iOS distribution certificate to a P12 file format (.p12). ** You convert the iOS developer or iOS distribution certificate to a P12 format so that Flash Builder can digitally sign your iOS application. ** Converting to a P12 format combines your iOS developer/distribution certificate and the associated private key into a single file. ** Note: If you are testing the application on the desktop using the AIR Debug Launcher (ADL), you don’t have to convert the iOS developer/distribution certificate into a P12 format. ** Use Keychain Access on Mac or OpenSSL on Windows to generate a Personal Information Exchange (*.p12) file.
** Convert the iPhone developer certificate to a P12 file on Mac OS ** Once you have downloaded the Apple iPhone certificate from Apple, export it to the P12 certificate format. ** Open the Keychain Access application (in the Applications/Utilities folder). ** If you have not already added the certificate to Keychain, select File > Import. ** Navigate to the certificate file (the .cer file) you obtained from Apple. ** Select the Keys category in Keychain Access. ** Select the private key associated with your iPhone Development Certificate. ** The private key is identified by the iPhone Developer:
public certificate that is paired with it. Select File > Export Items. *** Save your key in the Personal Information Exchange (.p12) file format. *** You will be prompted to create a password that is used when you attempt to import this key on another computer.
Generate the Application ID by following these steps: ** Log in to the iOS Provisioning Portal using your Apple ID. ** Go to the App IDs page, and click New App ID. ** In the Manage tab, enter a description for your application ** Generate a new Bundle Seed ID, and enter a Bundle Identifier. ** Every application has a unique Application ID, which you specify in the application descriptor XML file. ** An Application ID consists of a ten-character "Bundle Seed ID" that Apple provides and a "Bundle Identifier" suffix that you specify. ** The Bundle Identifier you specify must match the application ID in the application descriptor file. ** For example, if your Application ID is com.myDomain.*, the ID in the application descriptor file must start with com.myDomain. ** Important: Wildcard Bundle Identifiers are good for developing and testing iOS applications but can't be used to deploy applications to the Apple App Store.
Generate a Developer Provisioning Profile file or a Distribution Provisioning Profile File (.mobileprovision). ** Note: To deploy an application to a device, you need a Developer Provisioning Profile. ** To deploy the application to the Apple App Store, you need a Distribution Provisioning Profile. ** You use a Distribution Provisioning Profile to sign your application. ** Generate a Developer Provisioning Profile ** Log in to the iOS Provisioning Portal using your Apple ID. ** Go to Certificate > Provisioning, and click New Profile. ** Enter a profile name, select the iOS developer certificate, the App ID, and the UDIDs on which you want to install the application. ** Download the generated Developer Provisioning Profile file (.mobileprovision)and save it on your computer.
- Add Provisioning file to iTunes ** In iTunes, select File > Add To Library, and browse to the mobile provisioning profile file (.mobileprovision filename extension) ** In iTunes, select File > Add To Library, and browse to the debug IPA file. ** Sync your iOS device with iTunes by selecting File > Sync.
