IntelliJ IDEA 13.1 Web Help

To retrieve data from GitHub repositories and share your projects in right from IntelliJ IDEA, you need to register your GitHub account credentials in the IDE. You can also create an account on the GitHub free hosting without leaving IntelliJ IDEA.

In either case, IntelliJ IDEA remembers the login and password so you do not need to specify them while retrieving or uploading data.

To register GitHub account credentials
  1. Open the IDE settings and click GitHub.
  2. On the GitHub page that opens, specify its credentials in the Login and Password text boxes and click OK.
