Developer Mode

Developer Mode fences off all production data from all Client scripts and applications to the Jupiter Server. This applies to all Jupiter Server users. Switching on Developer Mode affects both WCF SOAP and WCF REST messages. 

The goals of Developer Mode

  • Allow developers to create client scripts/applications without needing to view/modify/create data in production systems.
  • Allow demo videos and screen shots to be created of client applications without production data being displayed.

Developer Mode uses data configured on the Jupiter Server in JSON files. Thus developer mode emulates the 3rd party APIs and the JSON data will be used by all Clients to Jupiter Server to simulate interacting with the 3rd party APIs.

At the moment, some methods in Jupiter do not do anything when Developer Mode is enabled. There is a lot of work to do to fully build out developer mode for all API methods to properly emulate the 3rd Party Systems.
