Is it possible to uniform the content of the launch.json file using variable references?

Imagine you have multiple developers, each with their own docker container, for example: DEV-BC15-XX where XX is the name of the developer. It would be nice if we could use the following syntax: DEV-BC15-${env:USERNAME} in the launch.json file to reference the container. This means only creating the launch.json once, instead of one per developer.

However symbols can not be downloaded because of the error: “Error: 'http://DEV-BC15-${env:USERNAME}' is not a valid absolute URI”

Is this something that AL might support in the future?

Thank you for this suggestion! Currently this is not on our roadmap. We are tracking this idea and if it gathers more votes and comments we will consider it in the future.

Best regards,

I would argue that each dev should have their own launch.json to begin with.
