Transfer certificates and the kind to your new computer

When you get a new macbook pro, as the apple developer, we need to prepare the things below in order to keep on coding in this new computer.

1> Download all provisioning files

In your new computer > open Xcode > Preferences > Accounts > login your Apple ID for your projects > once logged in click “View Details” on the bottom right side > once loaded all the info click “Download All” on the bottom left side > 50% done.

Lastly, we need to transfer all corresponding certificates with “Keychain Access”

2> Export keychain items from your old computer (“Keychain Access”)

  1. Select “My Certificates” from the left side panel

  2. Select the items you want to export in the Keychain Access window.

  3. Choose File > Export Items.

    If the Export Items menu is dimmed, then at least one of the selected items can’t be exported.

  4. Select a location to save your keychain items, click the File Format pop-up menu, then choose a file type.

  5. Click Save.

  6. Enter a password.

    The password is required to access the exported keychain items when you import them on another computer. Some exported items, such as public keys, don’t require a password.

3> Import keychain items into your new computer (“Keychain Access”)

  1. Choose File from Menu > Import Items.

  2. Navigate to the keychain items file you want to import and select it.

  3. In the Destination Keychain pop-up menu, choose the keychain you want to import to, then click Open.

And there you go! Remember to reopen your Xcode.
