Uploading iOS Builds to App Store Connect

In this tutorial, you will learn you how to easily upload your iOS app builds to Apple’s App Store Connect using the BuddyBoss App plugin. Once a build has been uploaded to App Store Connect, it can be applied in TestFlight to be released as a beta release, or it can be attached to an actual app version to be released in the Apple App Store as a new version of your app.

Authenticate your Upload Configuration

  1. In your WordPress admin, go to BuddyBoss App > Configure > iOS Settings
  2. Scroll down to Upload Configuration
  3. For Apple Account ID, select which Apple account to use when uploading builds
  4. For App-Specific Password, generate a password for the Account ID
    • Login to https://appleid.apple.com/
    • Under Security, click on Generate Password…
    • Enter a password label (e.g. BuddyBoss App) and click Create
    • Re-enter the password to your account and click Continue
    • Copy the password, and paste it in the plugin for App-Specific Password
  5. Click Save Changes

If you are getting an error message it is likely due to your password. Either the password has expired, or you might have changed your Apple ID password. 

To fix this problem please create a new password. You can revoke your existing one, but it’s not mandatory.

Revoke app-specific password

  • Go to appleid.apple.com and log in.
  • Find the Sign-In and Security section, then choose App-Specific Passwords.
  • To delete a specific password, click the Remove button A minus sign inside of a circle.. To revoke all passwords, select Revoke All.
  • Revoking a password will log the app out of your account. To use the app again, generate a new password and sign in. 
  • If you change or reset your primary Apple ID password, all app-specific passwords are automatically revoked for security. You’ll need to create new passwords for your apps.

Then follow these steps to upload a build:

  1. In your WordPress admin, go to BuddyBoss App > Upload > Apple App Store
  2. Select the iOS Release App build to upload to App Store Connect
    • You cannot upload builds that have not already been uploaded to App Store Connect
    • You cannot upload builds that have a build version and code higher than any other build uploaded to App Store Connect
  3. Click Upload Build

Your upload will be completed within 15 minutes. You can check the status at anytime on the Upload History page in your WordPress admin. Once uploaded, you can find your build in your App Store Connect.
