So I'm trying to debug a plugin thats getting an error, but I'm having trouble launching Kibana with inspection and connecting to it.
I've seen in the contributing docs that I can use
yarn debug to launch kbn with debugging ports, but there's not option for that within the plugin, using plugin-helpers.
watch netstat -tulpn doesn't show any of the 9229, 9230, or 9231 ports listening.
Also, 9229 seems to attach to the process running the elasticsearch snapshot.
How do I get kibana to open up an inspect port for a plugin I'm developing, so that I can connect to it with vscode?
I seem to have figured it out. If you run
yarn debug from the kibana directory, rather than the kibana/plugins/my_plugin directory, it will launch the correct listening ports and it will link your plugin in. I assumed that you had to run the yarn commands from inside the plug directory, but thats not true.
