Solvedreact native onesignal Unable to add Notification Service Extension


On iOS I am able to setup the SDK to work with notifications, however, after adding the Notification Service Extension I run into an error, notably the symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64 found in the troubleshooting guide and several other issues opened here.

My main issue is this: I can't add the framework libRCTOneSignal.a because it doesn't exist...? I think I am missing something here? πŸ€·β€β™‚οΈ


  1. OneSignal React-Native SDK 3.2.4
  2. npm install --save react-native-onesignal
  3. react-native link react-native-onesignal
  4. pod version 1.4.0
  5. Expo detached app

Steps to Reproduce Issue:

  1. npm install
  2. exp detach
  3. npm install --save react-native-onesignal
  4. react-native link react-native-onesignal
  5. cd ios/ and run pod install
  6. Configure XCodeProject following the official setup guide
  7. At this point if I build and run on my device, I am able to receive the notifications.
  8. Following the setup guide to add Notification Service Extension
  9. libRCTOneSignal.a cannot be added to the framework since it is not found resulting in the symbol(s) not found for architecture x86_64 build failed error

@jdegger that approach seems to have worked for me also, nice one πŸ‘

I used abstract_target to tidy up my Podfile slightly:

abstract_target 'MyAppAbstractTarget' do
  pod 'React',
    :path => "../node_modules/react-native",
    :inhibit_warnings => true,
    :subspecs => [
  pod 'yoga',
    :path => "../node_modules/react-native/ReactCommon/yoga",
    :inhibit_warnings => true
  pod 'DoubleConversion',
    :podspec => "../node_modules/react-native/third-party-podspecs/DoubleConversion.podspec",
    :inhibit_warnings => true
  pod 'Folly',
    :podspec => "../node_modules/react-native/third-party-podspecs/Folly.podspec",
    :inhibit_warnings => true
  pod 'glog',
    :podspec => "../node_modules/react-native/third-party-podspecs/glog.podspec",
    :inhibit_warnings => true
  pod 'react-native-onesignal', :path => '../node_modules/react-native-onesignal'
  post_install { |installer| perform_post_install_tasks(installer) }
  target 'MyOneSignalNotificationsApp' do
    pod 'ExpoKit',
      :git => "",
      :tag => "ios/2.6.5",
      :subspecs => [
    :inhibit_warnings => true
  target 'OneSignalNotificationServiceExtension'

I defined perform_post_install_tasks as a separate method to tidy up the target block further, it contains the same auto-generated content as posted in @yirui94's earlier post

I then amended the Build Settings of my OneSignalNotificationServiceExtension target, setting both Search Paths > Header Search Paths and Search Paths > Library Search Paths to $(inherited).

In Build Phases, under Link Binary With Libraries, I removed all except:

I then ran pod install, which links the pod libraries to both targets.

At this point, I was able to build successfully and send out notifications πŸŽ‰

Other Answers:

I seem to have fixed something similar by adding a target completely separate from my main target with all the react stuff included. Probably way too much, but I'm not sure what I can leave out at this point.

This is more of a problem with our documentation (for using OneSignal after detaching with Expo) than a bug with our SDK, sorry for the inconvenience this has caused you.

We'll update our documentation to better explain how the SDK should be used in Expo projects (which usually use Cocoapods to manage dependencies as opposed to React's more traditional Xcode sub-project model).

I'll mark this issue as resolved once I've updated our docs, also @yirui94 please let me know if the approach described above by @atothewest resolves the problem for you
