Create an iPA using shell Script from XCode Archive

Once you’ve generated XCode archive (make sure you are using valid provisioning profile and code signing identities), you can use following command to generate iPA file.

xcodebuild -exportArchive -archivePath $projectname.xcarchive -exportPath $projectname -exportFormat ipa -exportProvisioningProfile “Provisioning Profile Name”

xcodebuild – is the command.

-exportArchive is an argument to specify type of export

-archivePath is an argument to specify path of the xcode archive

-exportPath to specify path to export.

-exportFormat – one should keep it ipa (as our primary focus in this post is to generate iPA)

-exportProvisioningProfile – Keep it as it is being displayed under developer.apple.com/iphone
