    => another copy with build.jignesh.vachhani.properties
 Now open build.<username>.properties  and set with below settings

    # Specify the paths to an unzipped Tomcat bundle.

## Auto Deploy

    # Plugins will be deployed to this directory. Make sure that Liferay is
    # also set to scan this directory.
