It's essential for Sidekick agents to know which branch/code you want to debug. By connecting your source code, you allow Sidekick to understand the correct source code and the correct tracepoint location.
Sidekick has only read-only access to your source code and never brings it to servers and keeps it in your browser.
Apps need to be selected to start debugging. When you click "Select Application For Me" you will be able to start debugging.
