save keystore password in android studio 3

Posted by: admin April 23, 2020 Leave a comment


in android studio 2 you can save key store password and key password but in android studio 3 you can just save key password and you have to write key store password every time you want to build apk is there a settings or way to save key store password in android studio 3?
I Know I can save the password in my build.gradle file but I don’t want to password be saved on git.

How to&Answers:

I am having the same issue. But you can add your signing configs this way so they won’t be checked into version control:

Put this into ~/.gradle/gradle.properties

RELEASE_STORE_FILE={path to your keystore}

Modify your build.gradle like this:

signingConfigs {

   release {
       storeFile file(RELEASE_STORE_FILE)
       storePassword RELEASE_STORE_PASSWORD
       keyAlias RELEASE_KEY_ALIAS
       keyPassword RELEASE_KEY_PASSWORD

buildTypes {
        release {
            signingConfig signingConfigs.release

It seems to be a bug.

On Mac you can fix this by manually adding a Keychain Access entry:
