Password Does Not Work When Publishing to iTunes Connect


Service Code (AppBuilder)
Feature Publish to iTunes Connect


When using AppBuilder to publish an iOS app to iTunes Connect, the publish procedure fails with an error message about an app-specific password.

Error Message

  • Sign in with the app-specific password you generated. If you forgot the app-specific password or need to create a new one, go to (-22938)
  • Please sign in with an app-specific password. You can create one at (-22910)


These errors mean that you have enabled two-step verification or two-factor authentication for your Apple ID. With these feaures enabled, iTunes Connect requires an app-specific password when you use services that do not support entering a verification code, such as AppBuilder.


Create an app-specific password in your Apple ID account page and use it when logging into iTunes Connect from AppBuilder. Instructions for generating an app-specfic password are available in this article.
