I'm trying to run/debug DXA/Web8 using Visual Studio. When I start the debugging session I get "No matching Localization found for URL 'http://localhost:61762/'" (or a similar message depending on which port IIS express starts the application)
In CdApiLocalizationResolver.cs I can see that the following line is returning a null mapping.
mapping = _mappingsRetriever.GetPublicationMapping(urlLeftPart)
where the value of
urlLeftPart is "http://localhost:61762/".
All of this makes sense, I suppose, because the framework can't "know" that the application is being run up on an arbitrary port on localhost, so using this to map a publication might be a little challenging.
Is it possible to configure DXA to cope with this scenario? If so, how can I do this, and if not, what other possible ways of working are likely to be successful?
