Run/Debug Configurations dialog box (remote function settings) - AWS Toolkit for JetBrains

Run/Debug Configurations dialog box (remote function settings)

This dialog box displays whenever you update settings for the remote version of an AWS Lambda function (the function's source code is in Lambda in your AWS account).

Note

To update settings for the local version of that same function, see Run/Debug Configurations dialog box (local function settings) instead.

Although the name of the dialog box is Run/Debug Configurations, you cannot use the AWS Toolkit for JetBrains to debug the remote version of a Lambda function. You can only run the function.
