Debug Mode and creating PDB files for debugging Outsystems .net websites
Application Type
Traditional Web, Service

I am looking to try and send the output of a debug mode outsystems generated website to a 3rd party security scanning platform that requires the inclusion of all the pdb hooks generated when building in debug mode.  is there a way to ensure that we are able to get hold of these as part of the publish process in Outsystems.

I would also like to know if there is a way to precompile the application , this is a setting that is available in visual studio

Hi Ryan,

I don't think it's possible to do any of these things. As for debugging, Service Studio communicates via REST services with the debugging back-end on the server. Code that's generated in debug mode actually inserts code before and after every line of (converted) program code that checks for any debugger activity. So my best guess is that there are no "PDB hooks" at all.

I'm also not sure what you want to achieve with a "precompile" of the app. Not that Outsystems does not use Visual Studio for its compiling.
