Author ID in debug token process for BB 10 Dev Alpha

What is the author ID when we try to set a debug token?  Where do we get it from?

Which SDK are you using?

I'm wondering the same thing, using Cascades. When I looked at my bar-descriptor I had two of them automatically generated on there which were different, one commented out, so I'd like to know which (or both) to delete.

Use the "Set from Debug Token" button to automatically set your author ID (shown next to that field when editing the bar-descriptor.xml in the BlackBerry Native SDK).  Note that you'll need to create a debug token first.

Re: Author ID in debug token process for BB 10 Dev Alpha

Thanks. I had to create a new project so I could do that - once I've viewed it in text which I had to do to fix some issues, I don't know how to get back to the simpler view - but then I was able to copy over the one it gave me into the project I was actually trying to use.

To change back to the GUI edit for the bar-descriptor.xml right click on that file, choose Open With -> BlackBerry Application Descriptor Editor.
