IntelliJ IDEA 14.0.0 Web Help

Temporary and Permanent Run/Debug Configurations

Run/debug configurations are categorized into temporary and permanent.

Temporary configuration

A temporary run/debug configuration is automatically created every time you choose Run <item_name> or Debug <item_name> for an item without a permanent configuration. Temporary configurations can be saved as permanent.

Temporary configurations are marked with semi-transparent icons and are managed same way as the permanent configurations.
By default, 5 temporary configurations are allowed per project. You can change this limit via the Edit Configurations dialog.

Permanent configuration

A configuration of this type is explicitly created for a particular class or method. If there is no permanent configuration for an item, IntelliJ IDEA automatically creates a temporary configuration for it, when you choose Run <item_name> or Debug <item_name> on the context menu of this class or method.
