- Use auto-import - select this check box to resolve all the changes made to the Gradle project automatically every time you refresh your project.
- Create directories for empty content roots automatically - select this check
box to create the default directory structure for a Gradle project, e.g.
- Use default gradle wrapper (recommended) - select this option to use Gradle wrapper. Using Gradle wrapper lets you get automatic Gradle download for the build. It also lets you build with the precise Gradle version.
- Use local gradle distribution - select this option to run local build scripts.
- Gradle home - in this text field, specify the fully qualified path to your Gradle installation.
If Gradle location has been defined by the environment variables
PATH, then IntelliJ IDEA deduces this location, and suggests this path as the default value.
If Gradle location has not been deduced from the environment variables, specify it manually, or click the Browse button, and select the desired directory in the dialog that opens. Note that the value entered in this field takes precedence over the environment variables.
Specify the name and location settings. For more information,
see Project Name and Location or Module Name and Location.
