Disable re-signing (iOS)

If you upload an iOS app to BrowserStack servers using our REST API, we will re-sign the app with our own provisioning profile to be able to install your app on our devices during test execution. This process will result in removal of entitlements from your iOS app. However, if your app is already signed using Apple Developer Enterprise Program, you can disable this behaviour to test features such as push notifications and universal links on BrowserStack devices. In order to do so, set the browserstack.resignApp to false in your Appium tests :

Capability Description Value
browserstack.resignApp Disable re-signing of Enterprise signed app uploaded on BrowserStack false

Example :

DesiredCapabilities desiredCapabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
desiredCapabilities.setCapability("browserstack.resignApp", "false");
var capabilities = {
	'browserstack.resignApp': 'false'
}
DesiredCapabilities capability = new DesiredCapabilities();
capability.SetCapability("browserstack.resignApp", "false");
$capabilities = new DesiredCapabilities();
$capabilities->setCapability("browserstack.resignApp", "false");
desired_cap = {
	'browserstack.resignApp': 'false'
}
desired_caps = {
    'browserstack.resignApp': 'false'
}
Note: Webviews will not work with resignApp option set to false.
