Deletes files created as result of running gym, cert, sigh or download_dsyms

This action deletes the files that get created in your repo as a result of running the gym and sigh commands. It doesn't delete the fastlane/report.xml though, this is probably more suited for the .gitignore.

Useful if you quickly want to send out a test build by dropping down to the command line and typing something like fastlane beta, without leaving your repo in a messy state afterwards.

To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action clean_build_artifacts


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 clean_build_artifacts

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

fastlane run clean_build_artifacts 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.
