No iOS signing iddentities match the specified provisioning profile "Name of profile"

Thomas Pedersen 41 Reputation points


I've read a lot of people having this issue, and searched through solutions, but sadly have not been able to fix it.

So on my developer account I have a profile that is hooked up to and identifier and nothing seems to be wrong with it. I have also tried creating a new profile and linking that to my identifier, but I get the same issue, all the certificates on the mac seems to be correct, the account is setup in Xcode (correctly), I simply cannot figure out what the issue is here, and the only error I get is that the iOS signing identity doesn't match the provisioning profile. I've also deleted and recreated the profile, same issue sadly.

Now the big strange element here is that I have been able to build the project before, with no issues regarding profiles or identities.

Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated, also don't hesitate to ask for more information if needed.

    If your provisioning profile is correct, and you are using VS 2022 on a Windows machine, try to export the certificate (p12 file) in Keychain of your Mac and import the certificate and profile into VS.
    Go to Keychain, click Login, click Certificates on the top bar, then select the certificate, right click it and export as a p12 file, pay attention to remembering the password.
    Move the p12 file to your Windows machine, go to Tools -> Options->Xamarin ->Apple Account in VS, and click View Details, click Import Certificate, import the p12 file and input the password. Then check if the profile is in %LOCALAPPDATA%\Xamarin\iOS\Provisioning\Profiles
