How to get debugger breakpoints to work for React App in IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate - POST Request with JSON Body?

Hi,

I am posting this in WebStorm since it seems to be the closest to IntelliJ IDEA Ultimate Edition (2019.1.4) which I am using. For what it's worth, our company also has a license for WebStorm. 

I cannot hit the breakpoints when running the debugger in our react app in IntelliJ Ultimate Edition.

The following did not help since I want to send a POST request with a JSON body and it looks like this example uses a GET request approach: https://www.jetbrains.com/help/webstorm/react.html#react_running_and_debugging_debug

I don't see a way to specify a POST request and add JSON body content.

I searched elsewhere in this community and only found this which refers to the same approach.

Could you please help? 

Thanks.

Don't understand what you meant to say... The Help article is about debugging React apps in general, can't see anything related to GET requests there

sorry, but how is it related to debugging?

We had configured webpack to not build a source-map for the server bundle. We changed it to build one. With one built, setting break points in IntelliJ works

In regards to the GET / POST part, it's not important to go into that now that we can run and hit breakpoints.

Thanks!
