[iOS] Batchmode builds fail with CloudDiagnostics enabled when USYM_UPLOAD_AUTH_TOKEN is not set

Cloud Diagnostics


Internal repro:
./ --suite=integration --testtarget=iOS --testfilter=Unity.IntegrationTests.CrashReporting.CrashReportingBuildsTest.CanBuildiOS
The test enables CloudDiagnostics and performs a batchmode build. The resultant Xcode project won't compile with the error:
Please provide an auth token with USYM_UPLOAD_AUTH_TOKEN environment variable.

Compiling the Xcode project by passing the env variable to xcodebuild process results in a successful build:
USYM_UPLOAD_AUTH_TOKEN=test xcodebuild build <projectPath>

To reproduce:

1. Download attached "" project and open in Unity
2. Change the platform to iOS
3. Enable Cloud Diagnostics
4. Close Unity Editor
5. Build in BatchMode with Arguments:

<Unity Path> -batchmode -buildTarget iOS -runTests -testplatform playmode -projectpath <PATH> -executeMethod BuildScript.UnityBuildTest -username <Your Unity ID> -password <Password of your Unity ID> -quit

6. When Build complete, open Xcode project
7. In Menu bar press Product > Build

Expected result: Xcode successfully Builds Project
Actual result: Xcode fails to Build Project and throws Error:

"Please provide an auth token with USYM_UPLOAD_AUTH_TOKEN environment variable"

- This issue happens only on iOS
- If You Build directly from Unity Editor, everything works as Expected
- If You Build without "-runTests -testplatform playmode" or with Cloud Diagnostics disabled, the Build in Xcode completes without any issues
- The Project and a Video how to reproduce this issue are attached in Comments section
- There are few Forum links to this issue:

    This issue has also been reproduced on 2019.2.18f1, using -username and -password doesn't seem to be fixing it.

    Ok, for me the issue was that I was using the Unity ID username, but the actual email must be used instead. Like:
    -username -password XYZ123

    Issue reoccured in 2019.4.4f. Giving username and password in command line arguments seems not to be enough.

    Still reproducible in 2019.3.0f6. I am using jenkins to build.

    The issue is in 2019.3.13 and we used can get rid of it by adding a fake token but now even build directly via Xcode without using batch mode can still cause this problem. That only happens after we upgrade from 2019.2 to 2019.3.13. Please reopen this bug!

    Just wanted to followup here after digging in a bit more: we too were able to resolve this by adding -username and -password arguments in 2019.3.0f6. Would be desired to have some sort of failure state on the build that described that when running a build in batchmode with these services enabled.
