android/google play key help
I've searched for how to complete a shipping build for android and can't figure out how to. I've heard i need to find the signingconfig.xml file on documentation, but i've also read that file is no longer needed.
How does one generate a shipping key for google play?
do i need to go on the google play developers site and click something there to get the key?
then do i need to put that said key in a folder or type in a command in the terminal to get this to work?
our game is tested and works fine on our android device but we're looking to package. I filled out most of the settings on the google website, but i have no idea about private/public keys and it seems like theres way to many options for both of them.

Make sure you're going into the Project Settings and turning on Google Play Services as well as the APK Packaging for Android. You need to make sure you are using the Google Play key that you created for that specific application, not one of your other applications you may have already released.
Here are some additional links I thought may be helpful to you:

We have tons of documentation that you can review. Please follow the first documentation link first, as it's going to show you how to sign your projects for distribution/release.

I did generate a Key, but I was told I had to generate a new key for each project. In which part of the the code i type in the terminal (i'm on a mac) keytool -genkey -v -keystore ExampleKey.keystore -alias MyKey -keyalg RSA -keysize 2048 -validity (do i specify the name of the game?) Do i need to have each key as the name of the apk package file and .keystore. Would the name for the game be under "what is the name of my organization?"
Once I get these keys right i'll be able to show them on google. (the using one key for all four games didn't work correctly).
Also, we couldn't get the OBB file to download, but that's probably because of the key, right?
