can't add sharepoint username/password to sharepoint list RRS feed

  • Question

  • I added a sharepoint list, but did not save the username and password.  I was hoping that LightSwitch might pick up on this and prompt the user, but it did not.  Now I cannot find anywhere to add this information into my data connection.  If I delete my data connection, then I will lose the the screens I created etc.  Anyone know how to change this?

  • Hi Scott

    As we know, when you connect to sharepoint, If you are building a LightSwitch application for internal/company use then you should select Windows credentials. This means that users on the company domain will connect to SharePoint using their Windows credentials when they run your LightSwitch application. Or you can use Other Credentials, and provide your User name and Password. This is Enter Connection Information procedure.

    Best regards
