Description Tony 2017-10-19 22:16:53 UTC
When trying to build Xamarin.iOS from TFS it is not finding our code signing key - even though I know that the code signing key is in Keychain on the mac where the build agent is running from.

We receive the following error:
Target _DetectSigningIdentity:
				DetectSigningIdentity Task
				  AppBundleName: AppBundleName
				  AppManifest: Info.plist
				  Keychain: <null>
				  ProvisioningProfile: AppName Dist Provision
				  RequireCodesigning: True
				  RequireProvisioningProfile: True
				  SdkPlatform: iPhoneOS
				  SdkIsSimulator: False
				  SigningKey: iPhone Distribution: XXXXXX
/Library/Frameworks/Mono.framework/External/xbuild/Xamarin/iOS/Xamarin.iOS.Common.targets: error : iOS code signing key 'iPhone Distribution: XXXXXX' not found in keychain.
			Task "DetectSigningIdentity" execution -- FAILED

Keychains are per user, are you sure you're running the build agent with the user that has the code signing keys?
Comment 2 Tony 2017-10-20 15:25:18 UTC
Not sure how to check this - I am logged in as the user that added the signing keys to the keychain? 

That is the user I start the agent from.
Comment 3 Tony 2017-10-20 15:41:45 UTC
There is only one user on the mac - and that is the user I used to run the agent as well as add all the certificates, keys and provisioning profiles. 

It finds the profile- however, it does not find the appropriate key which I know is there.

I think I got past the first issue (had to move all my certificates and signing identities to the system keychain and give them trust access. 

However now I get this:

 The specified iOS provisioning profile 'XXXXX Dist Provision' could not be found

## Cross-referencing note

The user in Comment 4 has filed Bug 60299 about the "specified provisioning profile ... could not be found" error with additional information, so I will resolve this bug at this time.
