Users will most probably not notice this migration process and during this time, the functionality of the app is guaranteed.
The only exception being push notifications, which will start working again as soon as Staffbase has the certificate that will matches your app store account. Continue with creating the new certificates to get push notifications activated as soon as possible.
Creating New Certificates
When transferring the app to a new app store account the certificates must match that account. Therefore we need you to create new certificates and send them to Staffbase so that we can integrate them in your app.
- Create the iOS Distribution certificate. Read here how to create the certificate.
If you set a password for the iOS Distribution certificate, Staffbase will need to know it.
- Create the Apple Push Notification service SSL (Sandbox & Production) certificate. Read here how an SSL certificate is created, but make sure to select the type Apple Push Notification service SSL (Sandbox & Production).
Do not set a password for the Apple Push Notification service SSL (Sandbox & Production) certificate!
- Create the provisioning profiles of type App Store and type Ad hoc as described here.
You can include a list of test devices in the profile of type Ad hoc.
Sending App Details to Staffbase
As soon as you have set up the certificates and provisioning profiles we are ready to prepare your new app. Send all the files to firstname.lastname@example.org.
