WebStorm built-in server 'url to open' needs index.html?

I am using Yeoman to scaffold my web applications, which places index.html in the app folder (i.e. MyWebApp/app/index.html). When configuring the Run/Debug Configuration, I am forced to set the 'url to open' setting to http://localhost:63342/MyWebApp/app/index.html. Setting it to http://localhost:63342/MyWebApp/app/ does not work. Is this a bug?

What I would really like is to specify that the url http://localhost:63342/MyWebApp/ should serve the application from the app folder, but would be satisfied if I could just specify http://localhost:63342/MyWebApp/app/

Any ideas?

Thanks
Rolland
