Description Christopher Svanefalk 2015-03-14 00:12:39 UTC
When building an Android project with the Project -> Publish Android Application command, XS will ask the user to select a Keystore, provide key and password (etc) even if all of these have already been specified under the "Android Package Signing" section of Project Settings.

To replicate:

1. Create a new project
2. Create a Keystore
3. Under "Android Package Signing", add the Keystore credentials
4. Make sure that we are compiling using the same build profile that the Keystore credentials are specified for.
5. Build using Project -> Publish Android Application

I have checked this issue with XS 5.7.2.7 and XS 5.8.0.443 and able to reproduce the reported behaviour with both XS 5.7.2.7 and XS 5.8.0.443.

I have also checked this issue with XS 5.9.0.218 and observed that process of publishing an android application has been changed in this build and we are also able to publish app successfully with this build but it also does not detect the keystore settings specified under the "Android Package Signing" section of Project Settings.
