Description Tom Opgenorth 2013-07-10 14:05:01 UTC
Certain features such as Google Play require the SHA1 fingerprint of the keystore that was used to sign the application.  This SHA1 fingerprint is used in Google API Console to "whitelist" applications with some Google Services.

The current process requires uses to manually obtain the SHA1 fingerprint by opening up a command prompt/bash shell, and using the keytool utility from the JDK.

It would be handy if, as a part of building the APK, the build output displays the SHA1 fingerprint (and maybe even the path) of the keystore that was used to sign the application.

The command is:

> $ keytool -V -list -keystore .../debug.keystore  -alias ALIAS -storepass STOREPASS -keypass KEYPASS

After discussion, just executing and printing the entire command contents would be sufficient.

I think it would be great to be able to choose the algorithm during the publishing process when using the JDK 7.

Just to give notice to Xamarin, there are duplicates of this report or at least somewhat related regarding the signing algorithm and JDK 7:
