Adobe AIR

Get Your Signing Keys

Before you can submit your application to the BlackBerry®AppWorld™ storefront, or deploy it onto an BlackBerry device without a debug token, you must sign your application. To sign your application, you require device code signing keys. Here's how you can get them:

  • To obtain BlackBerry device code signing keys, see the BlackBerry Keys Order Form.
  • When applying for signing keys, please ensure the box "For BlackBerry®PlayBook OS and BlackBerry 10 and Higher" is checked.
  • After your application is accepted, you'll receive two CSJ registration files by email, a RIM Development Key (RDK) file to sign the application and a debug token (PBDT) file to generate debug tokens (one signing account can be used to generate debug tokens for multiple users).
  • Save these registration files on your computer. You will need them when you configure your environment for application deployment.

For further steps after receiving your registry keys, please refer to the following sites:

WebWorks: https://developer.blackberry.com/html5/documentation/signing_landing_page.html

Cascades : https://developer.blackberry.com/cascades/documentation/getting_started/tools/signing.html
