I have 2 Macs that I use for development and I do sign and notarize my applications.
For this, I have on my main Mac, the needed Apple Certificates and would like those on my Macbook as well. 
So how do I do this?

It took me some time to figure this out, but it seems XCode has an option for this.

Exporting Code signing assets:

  1. Start XCode
  2. Go to Preferences
  3. Select the tab "Accounts"
  4. Select your account there (Apple ID)
  5. Click the little cog at the bottom of this list and select "Export Apple ID and Code signing assets".
  6. A popup will appear asking you for a filename and a mandatory password (write down the password)!

 

Importing Code signing assets:

(these are basically the same steps, except for the last one)

  1. Start XCode
  2. Go to Preferences
  3. Select the tab "Accounts"
  4. Select your account there (Apple ID)
  5. Click the little cog at the bottom of this list and select "Import Apple ID and Code signing assets".
  6. A popup will ask you for the password, and your code signing assets are installed on this second computer.

 

I hope this saves some other user(s) the hassle of figuring this out ... 😉
