4.14 Provision Profile not importing, "already exists", produces IPP Error
Hi, I'm trying to test a simple iOS app made in UE4 4.14 on an iOS device. I followed instructions found here: iOS Quick Start. My certificate has imported correctly, however, I am unable to import the provision profile.
I originally tried using the IPP App in Engine/Binaries/DotNET/IOS without success (No green checkmark ever appeared). I then read somewhere that that functionality was being migrated to the Unreal editor itself, and attempted importing from within the editor.
Upon clicking "Import Provision", this pop-up appears:
Upon clicking "OK", I am able to choose the .mobileprovision file, and the editor begins importing it:
However, after about 10 seconds, the editor again says "No provisions found" above "Import Provision", exactly as seen in the first screenshot.
In the output log, this IPP Error occurs:
I have tried this with a new project (first person, mobile, blueprint) with the same result.
Does anyone have any idea what is causing the Provision not to import? Any help is appreciated. I am at a loss here and this silly little app was supposed to be a Christmas present (serves me right for waiting 'till the last minute!)

I'm glad to hear that you were able to import the second Provision sucessfully, however, I cannot say offhand why the first one did not import successfully other than iOS provisions & certifications are very precise so dates, times, bundle ids, etc. have to match exactly. In your initial description of the issue, when you tried to import the provision and it just failed to import without a warning that typically means the editor did not recognize the provision that you were trying to import as matching the currently loaded certification.
While I'm not sure why you were experiencing difficulty, I can describe how I have the most success (or least difficulty) when importing new certifications and provisions: Download the certifications and provisions at the same time to a folder in your documents. Then import them directly from your Project Settings>iOS (Certification first, Provisions second.) Before downloading, make sure your Bundle Identifier matches exactly as you have it while logged into your Apple ID.
If you try it this way and run into any difficulties in the future, let me know and we will look into this further.
