I am trying to develop an External Content Type using Visual Studio so I can use External Data Source columns in a SharePoint list.
Most of the stuff I am finding online uses Designer, but I don't want to use designer, I want to use VS so I have a
.wsp I can deploy to different environments. Note also, I do not want to create an External List, I want a hybrid, so I just want the ECT available to be able to use external data columns on a regular SharePoint list.
I have followed the instructions here to create the ECT definition, and I can deploy it and it shows up in the BCS service app, and I can see it when I add columns to a list.
What I can't seem to find, though, is where in my VS project I tell the ECT to use credentials from the Secure Store Service when trying to connect to the external data?
I found this article, but again, that uses Designer, and I don't want to do it in Designer.
So, where in my Visual Studio project do I go to tell the ECT to look for credentials in the Secure Store Service?
Or is it not in the VS project? Is there some setting on the ECT I set through the BCS service app in Central Admin?
