    Models Builder Api Mode questions/suggestions

    Hi all,

    I'm very very new to Umbraco, so bear with me and give feedback if this isn't the right way of suggesting this.

    I just learned about Models Builder API mode and was interested in using it, but I'm put off by the fact that you have set your URL/Username/Password on the Visual Studio level.

    This doesn't really make sense to me because every Umbraco project may have a different URL/username/password. The way I would expect the tool to work is that you generate an api key + secret which you can set in your debug config file. This way we don't have to tie our personal credentials to Visual Studio, and also have the settings on a project level which makes more sense to me.

    What do you guys think? Would you be interested in this, and if so where should I suggest this feature?

    Hi Niels,

    The username/password you enter in Visual Studio are stored atsolution level.

    In your solution folder you will find a file with the name [YourSolution].UmbracoModelsBuilder.user

    That's where it stores the information. Files with the .user extension is something you typically keep out of your source control.

    Hi Dave,

    Thanks for the clarification. I'll check it out when I get to my dev VM. That makes more sense.

    I just checked, and it works as you explained. Having a password in there still makes me feel uneasy, but since it's just a local development password it's not that relevant.

    Thanks for the help!
