Join Kevin Ford for an in-depth discussion in this video Set up Android Keystore, part of Visual Studio App Center for Developers.
- [Instructor] We need to create an Android Keystore for later use when signing our Android builds. To do this, we can do it inside Android Studio. So I'm going to open an existing Android Studio project, and we'll go to our Desktop and look under our native application source, Android, and click on Open. Once the project is open, we can go up to the Build menu and Generate Signed APK.
We'll leave the Module app. And on this screen, we can easily create a new Keystore by clicking on Create New. For the Keystore path, we'll tap on the dot, dot, dot and put this on our desktop. And we're going to call this AndroidNativeKeystore.keystore. And I'll click Save here, and we'll give it a password.
And we can confirm the password. And for the alias, I'm going to use VSACClass, and then the password, we can use the same password we used above or a different one. I'll put in my name to identify who made the app and where I live. We're going to leave the validity at 25 years, which is the default.
And then, press OK. Now, I also want to create a Keystore for our Xamarin project so I can do that right in here as well so I'm going to hit Create New again. And we're going to change the name of this from Android Data Keystore to Android Xamarin Keystore and we can use the password for this and an alias I'll use the same one and put in a password.
It is possible to use the same keystore for both these projects as well but I like to use a different keystore for my Android Xamarin projects and my data projects so that's what I'm doing here and then we can press OK. And we don't even need to complete our process of building the APK, we can just click on Cancel and now if you look at our desktop we can see that both of these keystores have been created.
