[Interest] Building iOS from command line

I'm trying to build my project from my CI system to generate the .ipa (and stop releasing by hand over. But I seem to be missing something into my way of doing it (I managed to do it for Android, armv7/armv8 .apk and .aab). Here is my steps raw command line steps (not the provisioning, certificate and the keychain are installed and work with a Xamarin and Unity application with the same setup, the question is not about those parts).

I'm building on lastest MacOS X, xcode is up to date and Qt 5.15.0

"/Users/Shared/Qt/5.15.0/ios/bin/qmake" Nubitus.pro -spec macx-ios-clang CONFIG+=release CONFIG+=iphoneos CONFIG+=device CONFIG+=qtquickcompiler -after

make -f Makefile qmake_all


The Qmake generate the makefile, make qmake_all work just fine, but the make build give me the following error:

Xcode couldn't find any iOS App Development provisioning profiles matching 'com.yourcompany.NubitusApp'

but my .pro clearly indicate

Q_PRODUCT_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER.value = ca.amotus.NubitusApp

When building from inside QtCreator this work and the provisioning is also working just fine. so my question: Why is the build any different? is QtCreator doing any extra steps not print into the output? is there any env variables required for Q_PRODUCT_BUNDLE_IDENTIFIER to be used? Did I miss a step?!

Extra points question: will this generate an .ipa or .app ? How does one generate a .ipa from the command lines out of the result build by Qt make?
