Two-factor authentication (2FA) is mandatory for all Apple Developer Portal accounts. If, during your build, Bitrise needs to access your Apple Developer Portal account, it will have to go through 2FA.
To make this work, connect your Apple Developer Account to Bitrise. That allows Bitrise to reuse your authentication sessions for 30 days so you do not have to manually go through 2FA on every single occasion.
Connect your Apple Developer account to Bitrise if:
- You want to use our
iOS Auto ProvisionStep to manage provisioning profiles for an iOS application.
- You want to upload your app to the App Store, using either our
Deploy to iTunes ConnectSteps.
- You want to upload metadata, screenshots, or other artifacts using our
