Use the xcodebuild command to build and sign your app

Note: xcodebuild is a complex command, so it is recommended to use gym for building your ipa file and scan for testing your app instead.

1 Example

  archive: true,
  archive_path: "./build-dir/MyApp.xcarchive",
  scheme: "MyApp",
  workspace: "MyApp.xcworkspace"


To show the documentation in your terminal, run

fastlane action xcodebuild


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 xcodebuild

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

fastlane run xcodebuild 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.

Source code

This action, just like the rest of fastlane, is fully open source, view the source code on GitHub
