Link a BlackBerry ID account to a signing authority account

If you have not created a BlackBerry ID token, complete the steps in Signing apps.

Using command-line tools, you can link a signing authority account to a BlackBerry ID account. If you use this, you can continue to produce .bar files with the same Package-Author-Id, Package-Id, and Application-Id, so that you can create upgraded versions of your existing application. When using the command-line tools, you have a few options:

  • Link your current barsigner.csk file to the bbidtoken.csk file, where both passwords are same:
    blackberry-signer -linkcsk –cskpass <Legacy CSK password or BBID Token CSK password>
  • Link your current barsigner.csk file to the bbidtoken.csk file, where bbidtoken.csk is in a custom location and both passwords are the same:
    blackberry-signer -linkcsk –bbidtoken <BBID Token CSK filename> –cskpass <Legacy CSK password or BBID Token CSK password>
  • Link your current barsigner.csk file to the bbidtoken.csk file, where both are in the default directory:
    blackberry-signer -linkcsk –oldcskpass <Legacy CSK password> 
    –bbidcskpass <BBID Token CSK password>
