Java coverage

These options control which Java code elements should be excluded from coverage statistics.

ItemDescription
Ignore implicit constructors Exclude implicitly declared default constructors from coverage statistics. Default constructors that are declared explicitly will remain included.
Ignore empty private constructors of utility classesExclude from coverage statistics empty private constructors in classes where all other methods are static.

Python coverage

These options are available only if the Python plugin is enabled.

ItemDescription
Use bundled coverage.py Use the bundled coverage.py script. If disabled, IntelliJ IDEA will use the coverage tool included in the selected Python interpreter.
Branch coverageEnable branch coverage in the coverage.py script. Thus additional information to the pure line coverage reports is added, marking the coverage of lines with conditional statements as incomplete in case one or more branches haven’t been executed.
