Allow saving multiple publishing configurations...
Currently, a VS LS project has a property sheet that allows you to publish the application directly to Azure / IIS. The settings (user name & passwords, connectionstrings, ...) are stored per project.
It would be a nice addition if we could save multiple sets of these settings per project. That way, I could set up a:
* development environment (IIS on local LAN, super admin user for sql user)
* QA environment (another IIS on local lan, but with restricted user)
* Acceptation environment (another IIS but on LAN of the customer)
* Production environment (Azure - the real deal)
The publish button would simply allow me to select my "stored settings" of choice, and publish to different environments / configurations.
Thank you for your suggestion on improving LightSwitch. However, Visual Studio 2015 is the last release of Visual Studio that includes the LightSwitch tooling and we recommend users not begin new application development with LightSwitch. That said, we will continue to support users with existing LightSwitch applications, including critical bug fixes and security issues as per the Microsoft Support Lifecycle. Please see the blog post for more information: https://blogs.msdn.microsoft.com/lightswitch/2016/10/14/lightswitch-update/

The ability to save publishing profiles exists in WPF apps and is a fantastic productivity help for enterprise landscapes.
Please make it happen!!!!
