In Pega 8,While building a new certificate set for ios ,We can see an option "Enable a simplified Certificate set (unsigned application)" under Advanced.Whereas we don't see any such option for Android,
1) Is there a way to get this option for android as well?
2) How do we generate p12 file for android mobile app in pega 8?
"Enable a simplified Certificate set (unsigned application)" is not available for Android app because Android apps can simply be signed with so called "debug keystore". The default debug keystore can be found in Android SDK or new one can be generated. See the steps below.
If you don't have Android Studio installed, you still can generate the .p12 certificate using Java Keytool utility that comes with any standard JDK distribution and can be located at %JAVA_HOME%\bin. On Windows this would usually be C:\Program Files\Java\jre7\bin.
So on Windows, open a command prompt and switch to that directory and run below command after changing the "AppName" with your application name.
