Could not code sign because there is no developer identity matching the selected provisioning . . .

Trying to publish app but during "Signing app. . ." get message box: "Could not code sign because there is no developer identity matching the selected provisioning profile."

What is wrong?

I have valid Certificates in my Keychain access, both for iPhone Developer and Distribution.

The Provisioning Profile is Active and has been downloaded and opened in Xcode Organizer.

A possible problem is that the Provisioning profile in the Organizer window has a Status of "Valid signing identity not found".

There are also no keys attached to my certificates in Keychain Access. Don't know if that is a problem.

    Sometimes it happens when you renew your apple developer program.
    You will need to reinstall the developer and distribution certificates .
    Renew your game provisioning profile at, download and reinstall it with xcode.
    You can take a look at cookbook on how to install (or reinstall, same process) the certificates.

    Could this be a server issue? I'm noticing a lot of similar questions. I'm trying to publish my first Mac App, and I'm pretty sure I did all the steps, but the drop down menu to choose the Provisioning profile says "no mac developer certificates found"

    I'm getting the same message - i did renew my developer account today - but i also started the whole process again (new certificated etc..) and I'm still getting the message..

    not sure what to do.

    Refresh xcode. Have you set your account info in Xcode preferences? Also refresh your profiles et..

    Open up XCode > Preferences > Accounts. Click the little + and the bottom right and add your developer account. - Done.
