        }
        development {
            grails.serverURL = "http://localhost:8080/${appName}"
            grails.plugins.spy.enabled = true
        }
        test {
            grails.serverURL = "http://localhost:8080/${appName}"
        }
    }

  • For security reasons the Spy controller must now be enabled in Config.groovy (see section Installation )
  • 'inspect' is now the default action for the spy controller, so it can be called as http://localhost:8080/yourapp/spy instead of http://localhost:8080/yourapp/spy/inspect
