Setup the keychain and match to work with CI

  • Creates a new temporary keychain for use with match
  • Switches match to readonly mode to not create new profiles/cert on CI
  • Sets up log and test result paths to be easily collectible

This action helps with CI integration. Add this to the top of your Fastfile if you use CI.

To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action setup_ci


It is recommended to add the above action into your Fastfile, however sometimes you might want to run one-offs. To do so, you can run the following command from your terminal

fastlane run setup_ci

To pass parameters, make use of the : symbol, for example

fastlane run setup_ci parameter1:"value1" parameter2:"value2"

It's important to note that the CLI supports primitive types like integers, floats, booleans, and strings. Arrays can be passed as a comma delimited string (e.g. param:"1,2,3"). Hashes are not currently supported.

It is recommended to add all fastlane actions you use to your Fastfile.
