Some days ago, a colleague of mine showed me a terrific tip in order to test Web resources without publishing it first in Dynamics CRM. This tip has literally changed my life as a developer and has allowed me to save a huge amount of my time. This tip uses the Auto Responder feature of Fiddler Web Debugger program.
What is Fiddler ?
This must-have freeware application is « a Web Debugging Proxy which logs all HTTP(S) traffic between your computer and the Internet. Fiddler allows you to inspect traffic, set breakpoints, and “fiddle” with incoming or outgoing data » (definition from the Fiddler Website).
In order to proceed, please get Fiddler from the application website: http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler2/
The procedure is showed in this video from the help section of the Fiddler website : http://www.fiddler2.com/fiddler/help/video/AutoResponderReplay.wmv
As the following picture shows, just replace the URL to match by the URL of the Web resource hosted in the CRM organisation.
I hope you will find this tip useful.
Please don’t hesitate to comment this post and share your way of editing web resources.
