How to find CSK Password?

Hey Guys,

I am new to PlayBook dev. I am wondering where can I find the CSK password? I figured out CSJ password, but after searching in the forum nothing useful came up for CSK password. Information provided on the following BB site did not help much:

 

https://bdsc.webapps.blackberry.com/native/documentation/com.qnx.doc.native_sdk.devguide/com.qnx.doc...

 

Thanks in advance for your help.

Re: How to find CSK Password?

The CSK password is actually one you pick. It is used in the interaction with the server to identify you to RIM so that their server will sign your app.

 

This is the most critical item actually, and you need to be very careful not to lose it, and to back up the related files (barsigner.csk and barsigner.db) after you've registered, or you will end up like some others who are not able to sign updates to their existing apps any more (ever). (They can request new keys, but those can't be used to sign the old apps again if they were already published under the previous, lost/forgotten, keys.)

Thanks Peter!

 

I was hoping someone would reply, and you did. While waiting, I tried a random password (I made one up). It worked!
