I'm currently in the process of submitting my first app to the Apple store. I've completed the following processes

  1. Obtained a developer account
  2. Logged into the Member Center to Create an App ID
  3. Used keychain access to request and receive a distribution certificate
  4. Obtained a provisioning profile using my id and certificate

When I build the app it runs perfectly in the app simulator and on the actual ipad, however when I switch my app to Archive on iOS Device i have a major code sign error which i've attached below.

I have no idea what to do to fix this, as I've tried to make sure all the other aspects of the process were completed correctly.

One concern i did have was when i clicked the provisioning profile file it would not open and "add to library" wouldn't pop up (i cannot access iphone configuration utility for some reason.) I manually added the .mobileprovision file to my xcode project but i'm thinking this may also be a source of my error.

Anyone, can you please help?


You almost made it on your own, but in the end there seems to be something wrong with your profile.

First I would recommend a tool to "look inside" the profile to make sure it's the right one: http://furbo.org/2013/11/02/a-quick-look-plug-in-for-provisioning/

This will just add some more information about the profile, when selecting it in Finder and pressing space (Quick Look).


Check your Xcode Preferences:

  1. Xcode Perferences (CMD + ,)
  2. Accounts
  3. Select your account on the left
  4. Select view details on the bottom right
  5. Refresh (using the small button on the bottom left)

Xcode stores the profiles in ~/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles

If your distribution profile is not in there, double click on it.

Then it should appear in that folder, but with a hashed name, e.g. 1edf8f42-fd1c-48a9-8938-754cdf6f7f41.mobileprovision at this point the Quick Look plugin comes in handy :-)


Next, check your Project Settings:

  1. select the target (not project) you want to build in Xcode
  2. switch to build settings
  3. look for the "Code Signing" section
  4. check if the correct profile is selected under "Provisioning Profile" => "Release"


Next, check your Scheme Settings:

  1. select Product menu
  2. open scheme submenu
  3. select edit scheme...
  4. select "Archive" on the left
  5. Build configuration should be set to "Release"


Next, check the Keychain Access Trust settings:

  1. open keychain access (spotlight => keychain)
  2. select login
  3. click on Certificates
  4. look for iPhone Distribution: Elena Carrasco (8HE2MJLM25) on the right
  5. right click, select "Get Info"
  6. open "Trust" section
  7. set to "Use System Defaults"
  8. repeat steps 5 to 7 for Apple Worldwide Developer Relations Certificate Authority


Next, check the Keychain Access private key Access Control:

  1. repeat steps 1 to 4 from previous check
  2. expand the profile to make your private key visible
  3. right click on the private key, select "Get Info"
  4. switch to "Access Control"
  5. select "Confirm before allowing access"
  6. use the "+" button to add "codesign" (normally located in /usr/bin/codesign) Hint: if it doesn't show up in the file browser, use cmd + shift + g to enter the path manually
  7. when using Carthage: add /usr/bin/productbuild here as well (thx to DesignatedNerd)
  8. "Save Changes"

Hope one of this does trick for you!


Update (4/22/16):

I just found a very nice explanation about the whole code sign process (it's really worth reading): https://www.objc.io/issues/17-security/inside-code-signing/

How to Fix iOS Application Code Signing Error?, Command /usr/bin/codesign failed with exit code 1. We can start to solutions. You should know those common solutions are at the beginning of  /usr/bin/codesign failed with exit code 1. Anyone have any ideas why this is happening? Practice As Follows. Update: The Technical Note in my original answer is now deprecated. Apple posted a collection of code signing problems (and some solutions) in a new document: Technical Note TN2407 Code Signing Troubleshooting Index


The following steps solved the problem for me. I was having the issue where it was not compiling for the device or archiving, working fine for simulator.

  1. Open keychain access.
  2. Lock the 'login' keychain.
  3. Unlock it.

Clean and build after doing the above steps and everything works fine now.
