iTunes Connect submission code signing entitlements error Xcode 8

I am having trouble submitting my newest app update with Xcode 8 GM. I updated my iPhone and watchOS app in this update.

When trying to submit I get the following error:


iTunes Store operation failed. Invalid Code Signing Entitlements. Your
application bundle's signature contains code signing entitlements that
are not supported on iOS. Specifically, value 'QX3TDZXXXX.AppName'
for key 'application-identifier' in
'Payload/AppName.app/AppName' is not supported. This value
should be a string starting with your TEAMID, followed by a dot '.',
followed by the bundle identifier.


I set signing to automatic by checking "Automatically manage signing" in Xcode. Everything looks fine to me.

After searching for a solution everywhere I tried to change the Code Signing Identity in Build Settings to iOS Distribution. That also gives me an error right away:


AppName has conflicting provisioning settings. AppName is
automatically signed for development, but a conflicting code signing
identity iPhone Distribution has been manually specified. Set the code
signing identity value to "iPhone Developer" in the build settings
editor, or switch to manual signing in the project editor. Code
signing is required for product type 'Application' in SDK 'iOS 10.0'


I also:


  • cleaned project

  • restarted Xcode

  • rebooted my Mac

  • revoked my distribution certificate



Did someone else have a similar problem and knows how to fix it?

Thanks in advance!

Answer

I wasted more than a whole day on this but I finally found the solution!

Somehow in my Build Settings, the "Product Bundle Identifier" was only my apps name instead of the unique Bundle Identifier (e.g. com.YX.AppName).

Click on your project, choose your App, press Build Settings and search for "packaging". You should find it there.

Found this by creating a brand new project and comparing every single setting.

In case this is not what is wrong in your project, these are the things I found on this topic before. Maybe one of these things might help you:

  • project > Alt + Clean (Cleans the whole Build Folder)
  • restarted xcode (that helped many others!)
  • revoked all Provisioning Profiles and let Xcode create new ones (Xcode > Preferences > Accounts > View Details > Create next to iOS Distribution)
  • checked that all App ID names where right
    • for com.AB.CDE the name has to be "com AB CDE"
  • restarted PC
  • checked that Xcode and macOS were the newest version
