Create and Export a Certificate
To create the certificate and export it there are many steps that must be followed strictly. We've taken a screenshot of each view to make the first time easier.
Apple Developer Portal
You need to be a registered Apple iOS Developer and pay 99$/year, so if you are not, you can experiment using one of the Passdock certificate.
Login with your credentials and after that choose in the upper right corner the iOS Provisioning Portal.
Choose a description and an identifier like com.YOUR_COMPANY.TEMPLATE.
Submit and look in the list for the newly created identifier. Click on the Configure button.
The process to generate a certificate will start, click Continue.
Now locate on your Mac the
Applications folder and
inside it the
Utilities one. Then double click on the
Keychain Access app.
Choose the main menu Keychain Access > Certificate Assistant > Request a Certificate From a Certificate Authority...
A new view will appear, fill the User Email
and Common Name. I suggest that you use your Apple ID's email and the description you used on Apple's portal.
Check Save to disk and click Continue.
Choose a desired path where the file will be saved (Desktop for example).
Switch back to the Browser and select the newly created Certificate Signing Request.
Click on Generate.
Wait few seconds until the process is completed.
Download the certificate.
Certificate has been created successfully, you can close the browser.
Locate the downloaded pass.cer file and double click on it.
Keychain Access will open and if you select the
login Keychain and the
Certificates Category, you'll find the certificate
with a prefix of Pass Type ID followed buy the identifier
Click on the little gray triangle to expand the certificate and unveil the private key.
Select both the certificate and the private key.
Choose the menu File > Export Items…
Choose a location and a file name.
Choose File Format Personal information Exchange (.p12) and click Save.
Insert a password and verify it.
Now you'll be asked to insert the Password of your current account on your Mac.
Click Allow or Always Allow.
Now we have the Certificate called Passdock Tutorial.p12 (in this example), the Certificate Signing Request and the pass.cer. You can safely delete the last two.
What you need to upload on Passdock is the .p12 file.
Be sure to choose the Advanced mode and create a new Template.
In the left column there is a Certificate menu, choose the Real pill.
Click on Choose File button and select the .p12 file.
Insert you certificate password in the field below.
It has been a long run but it's done!
