Please authenticate your plugin, by going to error I see when using stepsize Intellij plugin
When visit from browser, I am able to login too
but can't get any authentication token..
can any help on how to make intellij stepsize plugin work..
Hi (nagkumar). Thanks for getting in touch and sorry to hear you’re having difficulties using the plug-in.
After you login, can you please find the “Integrations” section in the left sidebar. Then select “Editor integrations”
On the page there, you should be able to see your authentication token which you’ll be able to copy and use within the IntelliJ plugin.
Can you let me know if those steps work for you? If you have any other questions, or if you’re still unable to authenticate, let me know 🙂
Sorry, I am only seeing this .. no integrations menu
(nagkumar) Can you give that another try please? I've just changed a setting on your account.
Edited works now. thank you
But now it gives another error. .Wrong repository error: Make sure you are in a Git repository with a remote set
I am trying on my local machine code, where verstion control is local svn
Great to hear that it’s working now.
Our integrations only work within git repositories at the moment.
I’d suggest booking a demo with us here One of the team will chat about your use case and will help you work out how to make the most out of our platform.

I tried with git rep too it still says Wrong repository error: Make sure you are in a Git repository with a remote set
(nagkumar) Does the git repository that you’re using have a remote set? i.e. have you pushed it to GitHub/Bitbucket/GitLab?

GIT clone automatically makes it remote enabled. I resolved the issue by disabling github plugin of android studio. Having only git plugin works fine. I observed the issue with github plugin in android-studio-ide-193.6626763-windows version of the Android studio.
In any case, how does stepsize calculate techdebt, in my IDE, it shows form where I have to fill everything... Including techdebt time etc..
Great! Nice to hear that it’s working now.
Stepsize helps you and your team track and manage tech debt. You can use our simple integrations to track debt as you come across it in your code editor, on your code hosting provider (GitHub etc) or directly within our web app.
I’d highly suggest booking a demo with us here We’ll go over the platform in detail and answer any questions that you might have :)
Sure, tomorrow 9.45 IST time, I have the slot booked for the demo.. love to see the demo.
Fantastic! Let me know if you have any questions in the meantime. 🙂
