CircleCI Integration

To run fastlane on CircleCI, first create a Gemfile in the root of your project with the following content:

# Gemfile
source ""

gem "fastlane"

and run

gem install bundler && bundle update

This will create a Gemfile.lock that defines all Ruby dependencies. Make sure to commit both files to version control.

Next, add the following to your Fastfile:

# fastlane/Fastfile

platform :ios do
  before_all do

The setup_circle_ci fastlane action will perform the following actions:

  • Create a new temporary keychain for use with match (see the CircleCI code signing doc for more details).
  • Switch match to readonly mode to make sure CI does not create new code signing certificates or provisioning profiles.
  • Set up log and test result paths to be easily collectible.

Next, create a .circleci directory in your project and add a .circleci/config.yml with the following content:

# .circleci/config.yml

version: 2.1

  ruby: circleci/ruby@1.2.0

      xcode: "13.1.0"
    working_directory: /Users/distiller/project
      FL_OUTPUT_DIR: output
      FASTLANE_LANE: test
    shell: /bin/bash --login -o pipefail
      - checkout
      - ruby/install-deps
      - run:
          name: fastlane
          command: bundle exec fastlane $FASTLANE_LANE
      - store_artifacts:
          path: output
      - store_test_results:
          path: output/scan

This will do the following:

  • Create and use a Ruby gems cache.
  • Run the test lane on all pushes.
  • Collect Junit test results and store log output in the Artifacts tab.
