iWork Document Exporting

Members of the Apple Developer Program and the Apple Developer Enterprise Program can integrate with the iWork APIs. These APIs enable you to convert iWork documents from apps such as Numbers, Pages, and Keynote into PDF documents that people can view using the Preview app or another PDF reader application. Generate the necessary authorization assets to integrate with these APIs in Certificates, Identifiers, and Profiles.

Key Management Notes

  • Save the authorization key in a secure place, as it’s not saved in your developer account and you won’t be able to download it again. If the Download button is disabled, you previously downloaded the key.
  • If you suspect a private key is compromised, first create a new private key associated with the Services ID. Then, after transitioning to the new key, revoke the old private key.
