“Not found PathtoPublish” on Visual Studio Mobile Center

I recently set up an Xcode project on the preview version of Visual Studio Mobile Center. As I’m fairly new to native iOS development it took a little work to figure out how the developer certificate / provisioning profile maze worked.

But after a bit of reading (the documentation is not always your enemy), I managed to solve it and finally got stuck with the following error message:

##[error]Publish build artifacts failed with error: Not found PathtoPublish: /Users/ci/agent/vstsagent/_work/1/a/symbols

Unable to figure out the solution myself, I had to chat with the nice people behind the glass. It turned out that the cause of this problem was, that I had not set debug information format to “DWARF with dSYM file”. See how to do it here: App Distribution Guide.

    Hey Anders, I am a PM on Mobile Center. Thanks so much for posting an answer for this issue. I also posted one on Stack Overflow that may be of help. (We added a nice gif!)

    Anyway, thanks again for helping out the Mobile Center community.
