Debugging Jira plugin in Eclipse

We are seeking some practical guidelines on setting up Eclipse in ‘Debug’ mode with JIRA SDK. In other words, how to set up Eclipse to debug Jira plug-in?

 

Following are the details around the same:

 

  1. JIRA SDK server is able to run successfully on port 2990. We are able to browse JIRA on localhost.

 

  1. We are looking to debug plugin codebase line by line to troubleshoot and verify additional coding we have done. For this, I have followed below threads:

run the atlas-debug command in order to start JIRA in debug mode listening to the 5005 port.

Then configure a Remote Application on Eclipse pointing to JIRA.
