Not stopping on breakpoint (DRF project). Python-3.11 & PyCharm 2023.3.4 (Professional Edition)

I am running my DRF project using docker-compose interpreter which is running successfully and can make API calls. But in debug mode, it does not stop at the breakpoint. I am fairly new here. Don't know which config has been missed. I set PYCHARM_DEBUG=True as env variable. and it gives the response of the Added breakpoint:/opt/project/backend/user/ - line:20 - func_name:b'post' where I am setting the breakpoint. And also giving me this when the container is about to start. any suggestion !!!

It is working for python-3.10 not in 3.11


After enabling the No Reload , the debugger is stopping at the breakpoint. From the doc - No reload: If this checkbox is selected, the -- noreload option of the runserver command becomes enabled. If this checkbox is not selected, PyCharm will not select it automatically, which means that debugging in autoreload mode is not possible.

But it will activate the python runserver --noreload. Will not reload after changing the code. Any better solution?
