What is The Way to Open IRIS Management Portal While Coding Embedded Python in VSCode?

Hi developers!

Those who code IRIS solutions in VSCode using Docker often use the convenient ObjectScript menu, which contains links to Management Portal, Class Reference, Unittest portal, Productions, etc.

While drilling down to a Dev Container to code Embedded Python there is no such option, at least within my settings:

So I don't know how to connect to it.

In the Extensions view if you search for "intersystems" does it offer you the option of installing the extensions into your container? Or have you already done that?

It does, but if you are talking about the ObjectScript extension it hangs for me.

@John Murray , when I restarted the container it worked. The solution is to install the extension into the devcontainer.

BTW, @John Murray - is there a way to set up custom links for the menu? E.g. Terminal, Test portal, IRIS BI, etc?

Hi @John Murray ! Great we have such documentation.

But here is my repo: I have the settings in .vscode/settings.json and don't have it in Devcontainer. Could you send a PR with at least one menu item as an example?
