why my debug information disappear when I change my string on a expressJS ejs project ?

I generated an expressJS project using the template webstorm offered.
It is perfect hand when I run the project I get a nice information popping in my run panel

untitled:server Listening on port 3000 +0ms

And when I change the variable 'namespace' next to debug to change the "untitled:server" to "myproject:API" this information doesn't get back anymore until I re change it for "untitled:server". I couldn't find why, Do you know how to change this variable without it disappearing from showing in the terminal ?


The https://github.com/debug-js/debug module uses the DEBUG environment variable to enable debug logging.

If you change the namespace, you need updating the DEBUG environment variable in your run configuration accordingly:


thank you ! it works !
