Hello,

Welcome to Microsoft Q&A!

This behavior is expected. When you associate your app with Store, it will create a Package.StoreAssociation.xml file which contains the name of your app and some other information. The association will not create a certificate for you. So there is no certificate that you could choose in the certificate Store.

If you want to create a sideload package, you will still need to create your own test certificate.

Thank you.
