authorId -- where??

Hope this is not redundant, but couldn't find a clear answer despite extensive search...


So my (real world) PlayBook won't run the app I created with WebWorks. I have successfully installed a debug token, but when trying to launch my app, the cmd line tool says "application authro does not match debug token author". I have double-checked though that the author's name in the debug token are spelled exactly as the author that's indicated in my app's config.xml.


When searching here on this  issue, I keep stumbling across "authorId". People keep mentioning that not only an "author" info is required, but also "authorId".


How do I know what my authorId is? Pls keep in mind that I have created both the debug token and the app .bar file purely with the cmd line tool. I have seen one video (http://vimeo.com/22753638) where authorId is extracted from the debug token via the AIR SDK tool, but I'm working with Web/WebWorks, not AIR; so that's no solution for me.


Any ideas? Thanks!
