How can I debug a third party intellij plugin?

I am using the cucumber groovy plugin for intellij 14

It is not behaving as it should, but I cannot see any way to pinpoint what the problem might be. The plugin is supposed to create groovy files based on values in a .feature file, it does not create the file like it is supposed to, nor does it log any error message as far as I can see.

Before I file a bug report with the plugin developer I would like to narrow in on what the problem might be.

I just setup a plugin environment that had me debugging the DBNavigator plugin in pretty short order.

However, I'm guessing that you might be better served checking the bugtracker at, since Cucumber for Groovy is a JetBrains supported plugin.
