Hello, we are having some problems with our Indesign Server which gets all Files that are stored on the Server and render itafter than to  complete new PDF. Now were coming to an Issue that one File will not be imported (it stucks). We builded another IndesignServer for Debugging and wanted to try the Debugtool ExtendedScript Toolkit, but it seems its not working properly, the debug server runs but the tool does not find the server even if i attach the correct version of the server. So all in all it will not work...

 

If anybody has some good Information about how to use this tool would be amazing, the documentation is not so well written.

ESTK is a tool that is not going to be enhanced futher by Adobe, so if you are starting with setting up the debugging environment its better you use the new tool which is a VSCode extension. See the documentation below

https://marketplace.visualstudio.com/items?itemName=Adobe.extendscript-debug&ssr=false

 

For ESTK, you could try executing a script with $.writeln() on an IDS instance. This would trigger the console of ESTK and then hopefully you should IDS listed in the ESTK dropdown

Hey thanks for fast reply, yeah im already using the vsc extension, but i often dont work with VSC, so its a bit new for me. How can i execute the command on an new Instance, because we have the problem our server which is installed is 17.4 but with estk the server versions are restricted to 17.0 and to attach a new serverconfig in the .json does not work.

With ESTK, use sampleclient to execute a script with $.writeln("Hello") statement in it, this should hopefully refresh the list available to ESTK.

For VSCode, I have personally not configured it with IDS and nor do I currently have access to IDS so that I can play around. There is a section in the link I provided above called "InDesign Server (or When Host Applications Go Rogue)" that should have some information useful to your use case.
