IntelliJ IDEA 14.0.0 Web Help

Android Tab

In this tab, configure the Android Application Package to be generated.

Item Description
Type Select one of the following options from the drop-down list:
  • Debug signed with default certificate: select this option to sign the extracted application packaged in the debug mode using the debug keystore or a key that is generated by the Android SDK tools. The following predefined values are used:
    • Keystore name: debug.keystore
    • Keystore password: android
    • Key alias: androiddebugkey
    • CN (common name): CN=Android Debug,O=Android,C=US
  • Debug signed with custom certificate: Select this option to sign the extracted application packaged in the debug mode using a debug keystore or a key that you specify yourself. You can generate a new certificate, or reuse an existing one. Reusing a certificate may be useful, for example, if you have several applications and you want them all signed with the same certificate to be able to store them in the same folder on an Android device.

    When this option is selected, the Key store, Key store password, Key alias, and Key password fields become available.

  • Release unsigned: select this option if you want to run a package on an emulator for test purposes, and want to have it extracted without a release signature.
  • Release signed: select this option to extract and sign your application so that it can be published an run on physical devices.

    When this option is selected, the Key store, Key store password, Key alias, and Key password fields become available.
