I’ve been developing apps for my own consumption/amusement for a while and running them on the simulator. These were loaded using an account based on my AppleID but I had not subscribed to the Developer Programme and my role was described as Admin.
Now, following your instructions in chapters 2 and 3, I joined the Developer Programme attempted to upload to the AppStore. My role remains Admin (in Xcode) but when I sign in on my Mac I am confirmed a the Account Holder.
In Xcode, under Signing and Capabilities, the only team I am offered is my Admin role and if I try to refresh that by adding a team, I still just get the Admin role. Either I’ve lost my free developer account or I haven’t acquired my paid account. I think it’s the latter.
When I try to create a distribution certificate I get the message: The operation couldn’t be completed. (OSStatus error 100028.)
Any idea why my Xcode doesn’t seem to know I have a developer subscription?
