Run/Debug Configuration: Python Debug
Use the remote debug configuration to launch the debug server. Refer to the Remote Debugging with PyCharm topic for additional information.
|Name||In this field, specify the name of the current run/debug configuration.|
|Update your script|
This section contains vital information required to prepare for remote debugging.
|IDE host name||Specify the IP address of the machine, where the IDE is running, by which the remote debug server can be accessible. This host name will be automatically substituted to the command line. By default, localhost is used.|
|Port||Specify the port number, which will be automatically substituted to the command line. If the default post number (0) is used, then PyCharm substitutes an arbitrary number to the command line at each launch of this debug configuration; if you specify any other value, it will be used permanently.|
|Path mappings||Use this field to create mappings between the local and remote paths. Clicking the browse button results in opening Edit Path Mappings dialog, where you can add new path mappings, and delete the selected ones. Local path is an absolute path to the project, for example, /Users/jetbrains/PyCharmProjects/MyDeployment. Remote path is relative to the SFTP server root path, for example, /tmp/pycharm_project_923.|
|Redirect output to console||If this checkbox is selected, the output and error streams will be redirected to the PyCharm console, and the command line is complemented with the |

When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:
Specify a name for the run/debug configuration to quickly identify it when editing or running the configuration, for example, from the Run popup Alt+Shift+F10.
Allow parallel run
Select to allow running multiple instances of this run configuration in parallel.
By default, it is disabled, and when you start this configuration while another instance is still running, PyCharm suggests to stop the running instance and start another one. This is helpful when a run/debug configuration consumes a lot of resources and there is no good reason to run multiple instances.
Store as project file
Save the file with the run configuration settings to share it with other team members. The default location is .idea/runConfigurations. However, if you do not want to share the .idea directory, you can save the configuration to any other directory within the project.
By default, it is disabled, and PyCharm stores run configuration settings in .idea/workspace.xml.
The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your project as well as adjust default configurations templates.
|Alt+Insert||Create a run/debug configuration.|
|Alt+Delete||Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.|
|Ctrl+D||Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.|
|The button is displayed only when you select a temporary configuration. Click this button to save a temporary configuration as permanent.|
|View and edit the template (that is, the default run/debug configuration settings). The templates are displayed under the Templates node and used for newly created configurations.|
Move the selected run/debug configuration up and down in the list.
The order of configurations in the list defines the order, in which the configurations appear when you choose a run/debug configuration.
Default templates of run/debug configurations are always sorted alphabetically.
Move into new folder / Create new folder. You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click , and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.
Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag or and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
|Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.|
In this area you can specify tasks that must be performed before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.
Click this icon to add one of the following available tasks:
|Alt+Delete||Click this icon to remove the selected task from the list.|
|Enter||Click this icon to edit the selected task. Make the necessary changes in the dialog that opens.|
|/||Alt+Up/ Alt+Down||Click these icons to move the selected task one line up or down in the list. The tasks are performed in the order that they appear in the list.|
|Show this page||Select this checkbox to show the run/debug configuration settings prior to actually starting the run/debug configuration.|
|Activate tool window|
Otherwise, if the checkbox is cleared, the tool window is hidden. However, when the configuration is running, you can open the corresponding tool window for it yourself by pressing Alt+4 or Alt+5.
