Magento PHPStorm conditional debugging

Asrar
・1 min read

Conditional debugging is an useful feature in PHPStorm.
This can become very handy when you would want your breakpoint to fire-up when a certain condition is met for instance - in an iteration.

I was debugging vendor/magento/module-customer/Model/Customer/DataProvider.php::getAttributesMeta(). But I really didn't want the debugger to stop on every single customer attributes in the following code:

foreach ($attributes as $attribute) {
$this->processFrontendInput($attribute, $meta);
$code = $attribute->getAttributeCode();
....

Instead, all I wanted is, something like - hey debugger, when $code == "group_id", show me what's happening at that point.

To, achieve this, I set a condition on the breakpoint on line $code = $attribute->getAttributeCode(); like below:

And that's it, now my debugger fires up only when attribute code is group_id.
