Login and Connecting Broker
This guide explains how to log in to your Sidekick account on IntelliJ IDEA.
There are two different ways to log in:
  1. 1.
    By clicking the red bar (Learn more about the bar color meanings) in the main Sidekick tool window. This bar shows your connection status.
  2. 2.
    By clicking on the “Click to Connect” button.
Either way, you will see the following screen:
If you don’t have a Sidekick account yet, you can click the “Sign up now!” link located at the bottom-left of the page to open the sign-up page on the browser.
If you have a Sidekick account, you can fill in the connection parameters to log in. By default, the broker address is filled as broker.service.runsidekick.comwhich is our cloud broker address.
If you want to deploy your own broker and use Sidekick as on-premise to your address, please reach us by sending an email to [email protected].
If the credentials are incorrect, you’ll see the “Invalid username or password” error as follows.
