Hi,

i have to sign a .esriAddinX (ArcGis Pro AddIn installation file)  with a certificate.

Tried to sign with Digicert, but that fails.

I found this page (https://support.esri.com/en/technical-article/000014993) where they use EsriSignAddIn.exe to sign a ArcMap AddIn.

But i can not find a place to download EsriSignAddIn.exe and i am not sure if i can used it to sign my .esriAddinX ArcGis Pro AddIn

Some advise would be very welcome

regards,

Steven

There appears to be some good information in the Pro SDK Wiki on GitHub:

ProGuide Digitally signed add ins and configurations · Esri/arcgis-pro-sdk Wiki (github.com)

The gist is that the signing utility is called ArcGISSignAddIn.exe that comes with ArcGIS Pro, and you can configure your Visual Studio project to automatically sign your add-in whenever you build.

Hey StevendeVires, we are having the same issue here trying to digitally sign an add-in that was developed for ArcGIS Pro.  It states it needs a .pfx file.  We currently purchased a code signing digicert that has a .crt file,  cer extension, or download as a pem file.  Just wondering the best way to sign these as esri only has this document published.  Thanks for your help
