Code signing is required for product type

When running:
ionic cordova run ios

I get the following error:
Code Signing Error: Signing for “App” requires a development team. Select a development team in the project editor.
Code Signing Error: Code signing is required for product type ‘Application’ in SDK ‘iOS 11.1’

I’ve seen several posts in this forum but none explain how to apply this fix for an Ionic app. They all reference xCode but I’m not sure how to apply a code signing in xCode that was developed with Visual Code. I can’t even open an Ionic project in xCode. I don’t even have a signing option like displayed on some of the screen shots. Could someone please help with this issue. I’ve been unable to deploy to iOS for over month now and none of the resources online specifically discusses how to resolve this for an ionic app.
