groovy - Android studio 3.0.1 does not generate signed APK .!


Keywords:android 


Question: 

The Problem is that I am getting this error while generating Signed APK while using Allatori Java Obfuscator. I tried different hacks like, Invalidate and Clear cache /Restart,by deleting build folder, rebuilding project, Strings , Even tried comparing package names ,Class Naming conventions,possible jars, deprecated methods or classes but Its of no use.! Multi Dex is enabled as well.! and I tried every possible Solution but unable to generate signed APK.

1 Answer: 

There is no Signing config in Gradle you have added, So first Create a Keystore ()

and then add in the app level Gradle

signingConfigs {
    release {
        // For making app store release config below parameters
        storeFile file('path to keystore')
        storePassword "keystore password"
        keyAlias "Alias_of_keystore"         
        keyPassword "Keystore Password"   
    }
}

after that in build types add

 buildTypes {
    // For  app store release uncomment below and select release build flavor in Build Variants
    release {
...
signingConfig signingConfigs.release
}}
