Sample of build.json

  "ios": {
    "debug": {
      "codeSignIdentity": "iPhone Developer",
      "provisioningProfile": "your-developer-provisioning-profile-UUID-here"
    "release": {
      "codeSignIdentity": "iPhone Distribution",
      "provisioningProfile": "your-distribution-provisioning-profile-UUID-here"
