Configure synchronization between IntelliJ IDEA and your issue tracking system. To do so, open the Project Settings,
and click Tasks. In the Tasks page, configure interaction between IntelliJ IDEA and your tracker.
Do one of the following:
To have IntelliJ IDEA synchronize with the issue tracking system in the background on a regular basis,
select the Enable issue cache check box and specify the synchronization frequency and the cache size.
No matter whether you actually request on information from your issue tracker or not, IntelliJ IDEA will connect to your issue tracking system according to the specified frequency and refresh the cached issues. The advantage of this approach is that when you need to switch to a task, the up-to-date information is already at your disposal so you do not need to wait till IntelliJ IDEA establishes connection with the tracker and retrieves the information.
This configuration is especially recommended when working with rather "slow" issue tracking systems.
- To have IntelliJ IDEA connect to the issue tracking system only when you actually need information on issues, clear the Enable issue cache check box.
- To have IntelliJ IDEA synchronize with the issue tracking system in the background on a regular basis, select the Enable issue cache check box and specify the synchronization frequency and the cache size.
