Description peterno 2015-03-12 17:18:38 UTC
When the user has checked Build ad-hoc/enterprise package (ipa) on the OS IPA Options and NOT set the package name the build should by default use the project name according to the text below the package name setting label.

However, in our case, we have a project name and another assembly name. The build produces the ipa with the assembly name just as expected but the function "Show ipa file on Build server" tries to find the ipa file with the project name.

The solution for us was to set the package name to the same as the assembly name and then it works.

I had the same problem. Thanks for your solution. It took me a moment to understand that the IPA was actually created but the button didn't work.

By the way: There is also a typo, when you hover over the button. It says "Show IPA File In Build Server" but it should say "Show IPA File On Build Server". When you do a right click on the project, you can see the right text that says "Show IPA File On Build Server".

I have checked this issue with C7 build of XVS i.e. 4.1.0.496 and observed that this issue has been fixed i.e when Assembly name and project name is different then also user is able to open ipa file on mac build host by clicking on "Show ipa file on build server". As shown in screencast : http://screencast.com/t/L0pjX29X18

Hence closing this issue.

Thanks
