xcodebuild fails with xcodebuild: error: '' is not a workspace file.

I have a xcodebuild task that fails with the error: xcodebuild: error: '' is not a workspace file. But, the job does not contain a worskspace file, and neither does the project. I use a project file.

It seems that everything works just fine, and the part that fails shouldn't run at all, since i didn't enter a workspace file in configuration. Or am i missing something here?

I am also facing same issue. can anybody help?
I added only project file path not workspace path, as I am not using workspace. but it is showing this "xcodebuild: error: '' is not a workspace file". error.
I guess it is still trying to pick workspace path which it shouldn't.
any help will be appreciated.

Hi Jonas,

  • What happens if you use double quotes around the space name?
  • Check what is the command ran in the build logs?

  • Does the same work from terminal in the same build working directory?

  • If there is a problem with the command (spacing for example), check the task configuration to make sure it is fixed.

Try the command with quotes and see if that spaces are causing this by chance.

Cheers,

Branden

I have the same problem, Have you guys find solution for this? 

User defaults from command line:
16-May-2018 11:05:02    IDEArchivePathOverride = /Users/me/Desktop/Builds/iOS-2.xcarchive
16-May-2018 11:05:02 
16-May-2018 11:05:02Build settings from command line:
16-May-2018 11:05:02    SDKROOT = iphoneos11.3
16-May-2018 11:05:02 
16-May-2018 11:05:02xcodebuild: error: '' is not a workspace file.

 

Failing task since return code of [/usr/bin/xcrun -sdk iphoneos11.3 xcodebuild -workspace  -scheme Staging -sdk iphoneos -configuration Staging archive -archivePath /Users/me/Desktop/Builds/iOS-2.xcarchive]


As you can see the line from logs does include -workspace key word. However, I do not use workspace ;/ I do use xcodeproj file.
That's what I have specify in my JOB.

It does work if I won't generate an IPA file. If I do select to generate IPA file it fails on this line
