Developer setup, build, and run steps


  1. Check out this package from version control.
  2. Launch Intellij IDEA, choose Import Project, select the root of this package and import it as maven project.
  3. To build from the command line, set JAVA_HOME to point to a JDK >=11 before running mvn.


Custom CI build for testing

This project is dependent on security-parent repository and security repository. By default the Github Actions CI workflow checks out the master branch of both the repos. In order to point to a different repository/fork/branch/tag for testing a pull request, please update repository and ref inputs of the respective checkout actions in the ci.yml file. Here is a sample which uses opendistro-1.3 branch of security-parent project during building.

    - name: Checkout security-parent
      uses: actions/[email protected]
        repository: opendistro-for-elasticsearch/security-parent
        ref: refs/heads/opendistro-1.3


Please refer to the well documented instructions provided by popular IDEs like Intellij and Eclipse on how to setup a debugger to debug code/test failures.
