VSTS with code signed PFX certificates

VSTS with code signed PFX certificates

While using VSTS, one of the most common questions is how to code sign your application.  It’s extremely problematic, because there’s no easy way to import a PFX with a password.

Step 1: Add a PowerShell Script and put the following as inline code.

String $(CertPassword) -AsPlainText -Force Write-Output (“$(System.DefaultWorkingDirectory)” + “\Resources\Harvest.pfx”) Import-PfxCertificate -FilePath $(System.DefaultWorkingDirectory)\Resources\mycert.pfx -Password $Secure -CertStoreLocation cert:\CurrentUser\My

Step 2: Add a Variable named CertPassword, put your password into it, then click the lock icon
