I thought that, if you are in iOS, then the account is determined by the simulators - it can be anything you'd like.
Initially, I thought you would be wrong, since clicking the [Cloudkit Dashboard] button occurs in Xcode, not in the simulator.
But, the actual databases (and their container) are not created until you run the app... and where do you run the app (at least to start with)... in the simulator!
So, before I had not bothered going into the Setup app in the Simulator and logging in (with my developer acct). This time I did.
- Then I ran the app.
- The container was created.
- I ended the app (not sure if that matters).
- I clicked the [Cloudkit Dashboard] button in Xcode.
- I logged into the dashboard with my developer acct.
- I could see that the container was created and that there was now a private db in addition to the public db.
- I could successfully now add a new record type (to the private db) and fields to that record type and save it
Thanks for your help!
