In Xamarin Studio on Mac OS X, when you right click on an iOS Project and choose Add -> New File and add the Entitlements.plist file to the project, Xamarin Studio correctly modifies the iOS Project file to add <CodesignEntitlements>Entitlements.plist</CodesignEntitlements> to each of the configurations in the Project file and also correctly sets the build action of the Entitlements.plist file to None.
In Visual Studio 2013 on Windows 8.1, when you click click on an iOS Project and choose Add -> New Item and add the Entitlements.plist file to the project, Visual Studio doesn't correctly modify the iOS Project file. It doesn't add <CodesignEntitlements>Entitlements.plist</CodesignEntitlements> to any of the configurations in the Project file and it also sets the build action of the Entitlements.plist file to Content instead of None to match what Xamarin Studio on the Mac does.
This is a problem because to use the new TestFlight beta testing provided through iTunes Connect, you need to add
to the Entitlements.plist file or else it won't allow you to use the TestFlight beta testing. This bug means that iOS projects that are built using Visual Studio on Windows aren't correctly configured for TestFlight testing when using it through iTunes Connect.
I have checked this issue and able to reproduce with the help of bug description.
I have followed the following steps to reproduce it
1.Create a xamarin ios classic->iphone -> single view application.
3.Checked Entitlements.plist in .csproj file.
4.Observed that <CodesignEntitlements>Entitlements.plist</CodesignEntitlements> not found in .csproj file.
5.Checked Build Action of Entitlements.plist from right click of Entitlements.plist->properties->Build Action.
6.Observed that Entitlements.plist Build Action is set to Content.
