Hey, I'm desperate, for half a year I compile the project now regularly with the "ios_distribution.cer" certificate to make the app available on TestFlight. Last time was the day before yesterday, since then nothing has changed, the certificate expires next year.

Now I wanted to make an update and suddenly, despite the certificate, my app is compiled normally, without it being recognized as store ipa?

In my projects, ios_distribution.cer is the same for development and the App Store. The difference is in the provision file:
B4X:
#CertificateFile: ios_distribution.cer
    
' Development
'#ProvisionFile: MaxItDevelopment.mobileprovision
    
' App Store
#ProvisionFile: MaxItAppStore.mobileprovision

Tools - Build Server . Build release app (for iPhone) and Build Simulator app are completely different.

The problem was that I used my appstore mobileprovision file and compiled it with the "Build Release App" and it still thought that it was not a "store provision file".
