Ace Compressor sidechaining

Happy new year! And starting with a pretty noob question: I have a problem figuring out making a sidechain compression with the Ace Compressor,

I am not sure what I am missing here, but I insert the plugin in the track that should be affected and in the routing dialog click on sidechain and put in the channel that should be the sent for the sidechain. so far so good, but nothing happens and the plugin is still just affected by the audio in the same track. Any thoughts what could have gone wrong?
