Different provisioning profiles for different build types

Different provisioning profiles for different build types

Depending on the type of build you want to create, you'll use one of four types of distribution provisioning profiles:

  • Development provisioning profile
  • Ad Hoc provisioning profile
  • Enterprise provisioning profile
  • App Store provisioning profile

1. Development build

When using Twixl Publisher, a development build is going to be required only when testing push notifications in an App Store Kiosk app.

2. Ad Hoc build

iOS Developers enrolled in the standard iOS Developer program have the opportunity to distribute their application outside of the App Store on up to 100 different devices. Use the "Ad Hoc" provisioning profile created in the iOS Provisioning Portal to distribute a build of your publication internally.

3. Enterprise build

iOS Developers enrolled in the iOS Developer Enterprise program have the opportunity to distribute their application outside of the App Store and without the 100 devices limit. Use the "Enterprise" provisioning profile created in the iOS Provisioning Portal to distribute a build of your publication internally.

4. App Store build

Use the "App Store" provisioning profile created in the iOS Provisioning Portal to create a build that you will be submitting to the App Store. The application will automatically be zipped so it's ready for upload to iTunes Connect. 

In order to create any type of build, the build settings for your app must contain the relevant provisioning profile.
