New process is launching. Breakpoints won't work


I am running a django project which has a view that calls a subprocess using Popen.

I get the following error in the logs.

"New process is launching. Breakpoints won't work.
To debug that process please enable 'Attach to subprocess automatically while debugging' option in the debugger settings."

I have confirmed that the Python Debugger setting is checked for
'Attach to subprocess automatically while debugging.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thank you,
