Developer provisioning profile detected in IPA


You get the error message "Developer provisioning profile detected in .ipa" while trying to upload an .ipa file of an iOS enterprise app.


This is shown when the .ipa file is signed with a developer profile. Such apps can be installed only on developer feature enabled devices.


You can resolve this by contacting your application developer and suggesting to sign the app with a Distribution provisioning profile. This is because an app can be distributed to users only if it is signed with a valid Distribution Provisioning Profile.
