App Store feedback: Missing Push Notification Entitlement ?!?

ThoPelThoPel GermanyPosts: 184Member, PRO

"Missing Push Notification Entitlement - Your app appears to include API used to register with the Apple Push Notification service, but the app signature's entitlements do not include the "aps-environment" entitlement. If your app uses the Apple Push Notification service, make sure your App ID is enabled for Push Notification in the Provisioning Portal, and resubmit after signing your app with a Distribution provisioning profile that includes the "aps-environment" entitlement. See "Provisioning and Development" in the Local and Push Notification Programming Guide for more information. If your app does not use the Apple Push Notification service, no action is required. You may remove the API from future submissions to stop this warning. If you use a third-party framework, you may need to contact the developer for information on removing the API."

Why do I get this feedback? Yesterday every build was okay.

    Make sure you didn't turn on Push notifications in iTunes connect for the app.

    It isn't turned on.

    I published the app yesterday 4 times - everything was fine. Today I got this message.

    There is something in the app which was not there yesterday.

    In general publishing changes like that need to happen in sync with Mac Creator releases so I don't think anything would have changed on our end since there was no new version of the engine published yesterday.

    @GeorgeGS I believe you. I would be surprised if you implement push notifications and not tell anyone :)

    But on the other side:

    • I didn't update anything (not GS 13.36, not xCode, not OSX)
    • all my certificats are from 19.08.2015 (no push notification enabled)
    • I published my app yesterday several times (testflight) = no message
    • I published my app today two times = everytime I got an email from apple with the "Missing Push Notification Entitlement" hint.

    Something has changed. But what? Perhaps it is a bug in GS?

    BTW: The message from apple has a clear hint :)

    I would guess Apple changed something in their process which is not unheard of. Is it actually stopping you from uploading the build or is it just a warning? From the wording in the first post it sounds like a warning.

    According to apple, it's just a warning and not a rejection so should be able to still push your app out. We'll investigate what's causing it.

    I am getting the same feedback on my builds. Any news about this?

  • GeorgeGSGeorgeGS Posts: 478Key Master, Head Chef, Member, PRO GameSalad Employee

    There's a response from an Apple employee a few posts down in this thread: https://forums.developer.apple.com/thread/15011

    I created a certificate with Push Notification enabled and uploaded the app = no message from apple :)
    The push notifications do not work - of course ;)

  • GnarlyGnarly canadaPosts: 840Member

    Received the same email still today after uploading build.......

    Not sure apple will like Push notifications enabled but no functionality??

    You should not do that. Apple will reject your app if the one reviewing your app is observant and notice that you enabled push notifications.

    That being said, I too received the same email when uploading my app (built with 0.13.36) today to iTunes Connect. Like @QASalad said they will investigate. It's not critical at this point since it's just a warning from Apple at this time.

    It's just a warning, you can still submit just fine

    Happening for me as well. Yesterday's builds were fine, today I get this warning.

    Did any of you guys receive rejections because of it?

  • j75j75 Posts: 235Member, PRO

    @Paxton
    Your app won't get rejected because of this notice. I have been receiving this notice for quite a while and have had no issues.
