7. How to create an App ID using Odevio

What is an App ID (aka identifier) ?

It is the combination of your Team ID and the bundle ID. The Team ID is the one you can find in your membership information and is supplied by Apple.

The bundle ID is the one you define and is a unique identifier for your app on the App Store. The App ID is required to publish an app on the App Store.

Note

The bundle id should look like this : com.company.appname

In Odevio, you can directly manage your App IDs. It is the purpose of the Applications tab.

Desktop app

Note

If you are using the free trial or the hobbyist plan, you can only link one application to your user account.

To link multiple applications to your user account, you have to subscribe to Odevio, check out our available plans here.

Make a new App ID

You can create a new one by clicking on the + New application button in the top right corner.

If it is your first application, you will directly land on the create a new app page.

The name is simply the one you want to give to the identifier. Choose an app name to make your life easier.

Note

If you have more than one developper account configured in Odevio you can select the one you want to use when creating a new app.

Let’s check if your App ID was created properly on Apple Developer.

For that, go over to your Apple Developer account, then to the “Certificates, Identifiers & Profile” menu.

There, you will find the “Identifiers menu” that contains the list with the possibility to create new ones.

Modify your Bundle ID on the Odevio-Remote

To modify your Bundle ID on Odevio remote, you have to connect to a configuration build just like we did in the step 1 of our tutorial.

So, go to the Builds tab.

Select the configuration type.

Note

Remember that your virtual machine will be up for an hour, so make sure you finish everything you need in that time.

Odevio remote xcode

We will configure the Bundle Identifier in XCode for our app to be the same as the one we created with Odevio otherwise Apple will not accept our submission later on in the tutorial. In the left menu of XCode select Runner and in the Signing & Capacities tab under Bundle Identifier you can find the field to change it.
