Import a Cryptographic Identity

Filter by IDE
Select the Progress AppBuilder client you are currently using for development.

IDE

AppBuilder can code sign your Android apps for you so that you can publish them in Google Play or run them on Android devices. To build and code sign your apps with AppBuilder, you need to add a cryptographic identity in AppBuilder. If you already have a cryptographic identity that you want to use, you can import it in AppBuilder.

Prerequisites

  • Verify that your preferred AppBuilder client is running and you are logged in.
  • Verify that you have opened the code for your app in AppBuilder.
  • Verify that you have exported your cryptographic identity as a P12 file.

Procedure

In-Browser

  1. Click the cogwheel icon and select Options.
  2. Select AndroidCryptographic Identities.
  3. Click Import.
  4. Browse to the location where the P12 file for your certificate is stored, select it and confirm the upload.
  5. Provide the password for the cryptographic identity and click OK.

A new cryptographic identity is added to the list. You can now use it to code sign your Android apps during the build process in AppBuilder.

Windows

  1. In the title bar, click your user name and select Options.
  2. Go to the Mobile tab.
  3. Expand Android and select Cryptographic Identities.
  4. Click Import.
  5. Browse to the location where the P12 file for your certificate is stored, select it and confirm the upload.

  2. Go to the Mobile tab.
  3. Expand Android and select Cryptographic Identities.
  4. Click Import.
  5. Browse to the location where the P12 file for your certificate is stored, select it and confirm the upload.
  6. If prompted, provide the password for the cryptographic identity and click OK.

A new cryptographic identity is added in the Cryptographic Identities panel. You can now use it to code sign your Android apps during the build process in AppBuilder.

CLI

  1. Run the following command.

    appbuilder certificate import <File Path>
    

    Where <File Path> is the complete file path to the P12 file for your certificate.

  2. Provide the password for the cryptographic identity and press Enter.
  3. (Optional) Run the following command, to verify that your new cryptographic identity is added to your account.

    appbuilder certificate
    

A new cryptographic identity is added to your Telerik Platform account. You can now use it to code sign your Android apps during the build process in AppBuilder.
