        iOS developer free account (for testing).

        Xcode 10.1

         

        Prior starting to develop the final project, I created some test projects. Unfortunately, I used in one of the test projects the same project name as in the final project. Now, I can't create this final project with same Bundle Identifier.

         

        I found that provisioning profiles are locally stored in `~/Library/MobileDevice/Provisioning Profiles/`, but deleting them there doesn't really help since Xcode seems to check online if the Bundle Identifier exists on my account. If yes, it refuses the generation of a new project with the same Bundle Identifier.

         

        Bottomline:

        Is there a possibility to delete provisioning profiles on the Apple Developer servers, in order to reuse the same Bundle Identifier again?

          You can't access profiles online in that example.

          With Xcode's free provisioning, everything is a test project. If you ever obtain a paid Developer Program account, you will not be able to use any of the bundleIDs (and/or profiles) you created when working w/free provisioning.

          Ah... trying to use the same bundleID with two projects - know that's your primary issue at this point, not simply provisioning in Xcode. Just be ware of following advice on making changes so you don't conflate what applies to a paid account with free. But again, if you're thinking you're working with 'final' release/store/production IDs and profiles, think again. Don't use now what you want later with a paid account or you will be out of luck later.

           

          See this thread [how i can have free Developer Program ] with an already moderated link that explains Xcode's free provisioning process (with screenshots) - be sure to read all the way thru it and any updates at the bottom.

           

          Good luck.

              That's bad news. So in other words, I cannot delete provisioning profiles (using the web interface, or Xcode) after I upgrade to a payed Developer Program account?

               

              I read the link you posted at the end. Interesting!
