Working with extensions which have dependency on other extensions is currently not very easy. For example if we have a "main app" and a "test app", then in order to republish our main app, then we first have to unpublish the test app. Not only is there no way to do this from VSCode (except than writing a Powershell script and run it), but really slows down the test - development cycle when doing test driven development. My hope is that that the AL extension would be able to handle this automatically. With the option that it also re-publishes any unpublished extensions, so that it would be possible to quickly rerun the test that failed before.

Thanks, we are aware of the current limitation, and already have plans to improve this in the backlog, although this will probably not make it for the Spring 2019 release.



What About this Suggestion:
The add the unpublish action for test-apps to the lunch.json of our AL-Extension like this example:
