Code sign Error -Command /usr/bin/codesign failed with exit code 1

Hi Guys,
I am newbie to Appium. I am trying to setup appium IOS automation for real device. I did all the steps mentioned in the appium docs.
i get the following error
CodeSign /Users/cappexit/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/WebDriverAgent-brdadhpuduowllgivnnvuygpwhzy/Build/Products/Debug-iphoneos/WebDriverAgentLib.framework/Frameworks/RoutingHTTPServer.framework
cd /usr/local/lib/node_modules/appium/node_modules/appium-xcuitest-driver/WebDriverAgent
export CODESIGN_ALLOCATE=/Applications/
export PATH="/Applications/"

/usr/bin/codesign --force --sign 7358F373BB34254DD4E0C7098DA6789912F05940 --preserve-metadata=identifier,entitlements,flags --timestamp=none /Users/cappexit/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/WebDriverAgent-brdadhpuduowllgivnnvuygpwhzy/Build/Products/Debug-iphoneos/WebDriverAgentLib.framework/Frameworks/RoutingHTTPServer.framework

/Users/cappexit/Library/Developer/Xcode/DerivedData/WebDriverAgent-brdadhpuduowllgivnnvuygpwhzy/Build/Products/Debug-iphoneos/WebDriverAgentLib.framework/Frameworks/RoutingHTTPServer.framework: unknown error -1=ffffffffffffffff
Command /usr/bin/codesign failed with exit code 1

MacOS High Sierra
xcode 9.1
appium 1.7.1

story behind this error…
I installed all the dependencies and then when i did Build the project. i got a popup saying “Codesign wants to access key “access” in your keychain”. It wanted me to enter my “login” keychain password. i entered the password and clicked “Allow”.but it was popping up again and again so i didn’t know how to close that popup. so i clicked “Deny” option. After that whenever i try to build the project it fails with the above error.

I tried uninstalling appium it didn’t work.

I am really stuck with this… it would be really helpful if someone can help me. Thanks in advance.
