Apple Developer Account
This guide describes how to create your Apple Developer Account and give access to inLogic to administrate your app.
- The school needs it's own Apple Developer Account
- inLogic needs accesss to Apple Developer Program to create App ID and provisioning profile
- inLogic needs access to App Store Connect to create and continues update the app
Due to the changes made by Apple on their Store View Guidelines on the 21st of December, 2017, we are not longer permitted to release our customers apps through our own developer account. (Section 4.2.6)
For this reason, all customers must create their own Apple Developer account before we can release a new version. Having an Apple Developer account costs an anual fee of 99$ USD.
Luckily, while you have to create your own developer account, when you add our development account as App Manager to your new developer account, we will still be able to handle the entire process of creating and keeping your app up-to-date with the latest releases of the UMS App.
Instead of signing up for an Apple Developer Account, your school can choose to become a member of 'Min skole app'. This is a single app being hosted by InLogic where the first step for the user is to choose which school they wish to connect to.
After they choose the school the rest of the app is identical to the UMS app.
You can read more about 'Min skole app' here.

I'm writing/calling on behalf of my educational institution *School name*. We are trying to set up an Apple Developer account, and are encountering issues with the DUNS number. The company legal structure is registered as 'Other legal structure'. I have been informed that this legal structure by itself is not enough for Apple to verify us as a legal entity, and that you need to see documentation that we are a registered company. I have the legal documents as PDFs, do you have an email I can send them to?
If your company type is not Other legal structure, please contact Apple Support https://developer.apple.com/contact/
Select "Membership and Account" and "D-U-N-S Number"

Potential Loss of Keychain Access warning
After an app transfer you'll receive the following email from Apple:
Dear Developer, We identified one or more issues with a recent delivery for your app, "***********". Your delivery was successful, but you may wish to correct the following issues in your next delivery: Potential Loss of Keychain Access - The previous version of software has an application-identifier value of ['**********.dk.inlogic.**********'] and the new version of software being submitted has an application-identifier of ['**********.dk.inlogic.**********']. This will result in a loss of keychain access. After you've corrected the issues, you can use Xcode or Application Loader to upload a new binary to iTunes Connect. Best regards, The App Store Team
Apps that should expect this warning and proceed with the submission regardless are: "Those that are submitting the first update for a recently acquired app via App Transfer"
There is no further action needed if an app transfer has been made.
If the people menu is missing from please check the account is not a type "individual". You check this under Membership "Entity Type". This should say "Company / Organization"
