My first newbie question- authorid?

I have an app that I developed for the Playbook with the Marmalade SDK.  When I go to deploy, build the package, the deployment tool breaks and wants the "playbook-authorid."  When I check the Marmalade docs for deploying to the playbook it states I must get the playbook-authorid from RIM. 

Now I looked pretty much everywhere on the site to see a reference to the playbook-authorid and came up empty.

 

How does one -- me -- obtain the playbook-authorid.  I get that and I'm off and deploying.

 

Thanks

Re: My first newbie question- authorid?

This is present in the debug tokens you create.  You can use the following command to view it:

 

blackberry-airpackager -listmanifest yourDebugToken.bar

 

Or you can open your debug token .bar file in WinZip and view the manifest file.

Re: My first newbie question- authorid?

This is an old post, but it's all I see with the same question. I'm trying to do the same but with Cascades so the air-packager option isn't available and I don't even know where the IDE is saving the debug tokens before uploading them to the device.

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.
