Allow optionally authenticating as any user when debugging a LightSwitch application RRS feed

  • General discussion

  • An application may have custom code either in the service layer or the UI layer, that behaves differently according to properties of the authenticated user.

    Currently when running in debug mode we're always authenticated as TestUser. It's not convenient to have to deploy the application to test such custom code, and not being able to debug it in Visual Studio.

    I suggest that LightSwitch has an option, parameter or any kind of condition (even if set by custom code) that will disable the feature to force the user to TestUser during debugging.
