Besides indicating the current file status relative to the repository, IntelliJ IDEA integration with Perforce provides you with the accumulated view of the project files' statuses.

In this section:

  2. On the main menu, choose VCS | Refresh File Status.
  3. Switch to the Changes tool window, tab Local.

    checkProjectStatusPerforce

    The status of each file is indicated by the color in which the path to the file is displayed.
To refresh the statuses of project files

IntelliJ IDEA provides two refresh modes for statuses of files under Perforce control.

  • Standard Refresh takes into consideration only the changes made through the IntelliJ IDEA integration with Perforce. This improves performance because does not require connecting to the server. However, this approach does not let you know about the changes made outside IntelliJ IDEA, for example, right through the p4v client application.
  • Force Refresh considers all the changes made to project, both from IntelliJ IDEA and from any other application, for example, right through p4v client.

  1. Switch to the Changes tool window, tab Local.
  2. Do one of the following:
    • To run Standard Refresh, click the Refresh toolbar button img or press Ctrl+F5Ctrl+F5Ctrl+5Ctrl+F5Ctrl+F5Ctrl+F5Ctrl+Alt+RCtrl+F5Ctrl+F5Command RControl F5Command R.
    • To run Force Refresh, click the Force Refresh toolbar button perforceChangesToolWindowForceRefresh.png.
