Business value

It is currently not possible to debug extension install or upgrade code by just adding breakpoints and deploying a new application. Instead, some workaround is required to manually trigger the install and upgrade code, possibly commenting out upgrade tags and so on, making it tedious to properly test install and upgrade during development, as well as to troubleshoot issues.

Feature details

With this feature you can set breakpoints in install or upgrade code, attach and trigger publishing of an extension to debug install or upgrade code.
