Error trying to run mobile tests on iOS 13.3

Hi, all,

I tried to run tests on an iOS 13.3 device (real device) and am getting a certificate error from the WebDriverAgent. I’ve already gone through the iOS device setup for Katalon and been able to successfully run these tests for months on several other devices with different iOS versions. I only see this error when trying against 13.3. I have changed nothing about the setup except plugging in a new device to my computer.

Has anyone else seen something similar or know the reason the entitlements would be invalid for only this version of iOS? I’m unclear why this would fail only for my 13.3 device but run successfully for all others.

Thanks in advance for your help.

Katalon Studio 7.0.8
Appium: 1.15.1

Hi @SC_Smith,

This error means you have not built the WebDriverAgentRunner-Runner yet. Please follow this document to build WebDriverAgentRunner:

This step needs to perform every time you change the Appium version.

Hi @duyluong,

Thanks for your reply. I have tried rebuilding the WebDriverAgentRunner-Runner in Xcode on the 13.3 device but it shows a certificate error that does not occur for the other devices with lower iOS version. Are you able to successfully build the WebDriverAgentRunner on an iOS device running 13.3? I’m curious if something has changed in the iOS version that is causing the build to error.

When I build on a device 13.0 and below, it’s successful, and so are Katalon tests. When I try to build on the 13.3 device, I see this error in Xcode:

Revoke certificate
Your account already has a signing certificate for this machine but it is not present in your keychain. To create a new one, you must first revoke the existing certificate.


This is an issue that relates with Account configuration in XCode. Please follow this discussion to resolve it:

Thanks for the information @duyluong. It looks like this was somehow specific to one device; I was able to run successfully on another iOS 13.3 device.
