Uploading files for your builds

Abstract

If your build requires any files to make it work, you can upload them in the Code Signing tab of the Workflow Editor.

If your build requires any files to make it work, you can upload them to Bitrise on the App settings page. It accepts any file type, all you need to do is provide a unique ID and upload the file.

Once a file is uploaded, it is stored as an Environment Variable (Env Var). You can use this Env Var to access the file and use it in your builds. The file can also be:

File restrictions

There are certain restrictions on upload size and number of files:

  • You can't upload a file bigger than 5 MB.

  • You can only store a total of 5 different files at the same time. If you want to upload more, you need to delete one of the files in the storage.

To upload a file:
