Uploading a widget provisioning profile

Updated on November 9, 2021

You upload a widget provisioning profile from your computer to a new or to an existing certificate set. A widget provisioning profile for the iOS platform is a collection of digital entities that enables the use of a Today widget with your mobile app for iOS.

Note: When you create a widget provisioning file, the widget provisioning profile and the mobile provisioning profile must belong to the same App Group, and the bundle ID of the widget provisioning file must include the bundle ID that is defined in your iOS app's mobile provisioning file.
  1. If necessary, generate a new widget provisioning profile for your iOS app from the Apple Developer Portal and save it in a directory of your choice.
  2. If the certificate set does not exist, create a new certificate set.
    For more information, see Creating an iOS certificate set.
  3. If the certificate set exists, open an existing certificate set
    For more information, see Opening an existing iOS certificate set.
  4. Create a new iOS certificate set.
    For more information, see Creating an iOS certificate set.
  5. Next to the Widget Provisioning file list, click New.
  6. Click Browse, and select a widget provisioning profile file from your directory.
  7. In the Profile name field, enter a name for the widget provisioning profile. The name cannot include underscore ( _ ), hyphen (-), or period (.) characters.
  8. Click OK.
  9. Click Submit.
Result: After you upload a provisioning file for an existing certificate set, you can select this modified certificate set for your iOS mobile app. For more information, see Selecting an iOS certificate set.
