Name field and Share option
|Name||Use this field to edit the name of the run/debug configuration.
This field is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
If the directory-based project format is used, the settings for a run/debug configuration are stored in a separate xml file in the .idea\runConfigurations folder if the run/debug configuration is shared and in the .idea\workspace.xml file otherwise.
If the file-based format is used, the settings are stored in the .ipr file for shared configurations or in the .iws file for the ones that are not shared.
This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
Select the server configuration to be used.
If the run/debug configuration is intended for working with a remote server, the same server version should be configured locally and associated with the run/debug configuration.
Click Configure to create a new server configuration or edit an existing one. (The Application Servers dialog will open.)
|Start browser||Both||Select this check box to run the default Web browser to study your application output there.|
|Startup page||Both||In this field, specify the URL the browser should go to when started. In most typical cases, this URL will correspond to the root of your Web application or its starting page.|
|VM options||Local||If necessary, specify the command-line options to be passed to the server JVM at the server start.
If you need more room to type, click next to the field to open the VM Options dialog where the text entry area is larger.
When specifying the options, follow these rules:
|On 'Update' action||Both||
Select the necessary option for the Update application action.
For packed artifacts, the available options are:
In the run/debug configurations for remote servers, the available application update options are limited to those for packed artifacts. Also, the Restart server option is not available.
Select this check box if you want to see the Update <application name>
dialog every time you perform the Update application action.
The Update <application name> dialog is used to view and change the current update option prior to actually updating the application.
|On frame deactivation||Both||
Specify which application update actions should be performed when switching from IntelliJ IDEA to
a different application (for example, a Web browser).
(Frame deactivation means switching to a different application.)
If no update actions are required, select Do nothing. Otherwise, select the necessary update option. Note that the Redeploy an the Restart server options are not available.
|Port||Local||Specify the HTTP server port.|
|JMX Port||Both||Specify the JMX server port.|
|Ping||Remote||Click this button to ping the JMX port on the server.|
|JMX User||Both||Specify the name of the user on whose behalf IntelliJ IDEA will connect to the JMX server port.|
|JMX Password||Both||Specify the password of the JMX user.|
|Local staging / Repository target||Local||Select the watched repository to place your plans (artifacts) to.|
|Remote staging||Remote||This section contains the settings related to staging.|
Select the way the staging environment or host is accessed for transferring the application artifact
or artifacts from your local computer.
(In the user interface of IntelliJ IDEA this setting is also referred to as
the connection type.)
The available options are:
If the list is empty, you have to enable the Remote Hosts Access plugin which supports the corresponding functionality.
|Host||Remote||If Same file system is selected for Type,
the only available option for Host is also Same file system.
In all other cases, the list contains the existing configurations of the selected type. So each configuration corresponds to an individual (S)FTP connection, or a local or mounted folder.
Select an existing configuration or create a new one.
To create a new configuration:
|Deployment access||Remote||When deploying to the remote host, the application artifact or artifacts are placed into a staging folder (deployment target folder) which should be accessible to SpringSource dm Server. The settings in this section define the location of this staging folder.|
|Path from root||Remote||The path to the staging folder relative to the local or mounted folder,
or the root of the (S)FTP host.
You can use to select the folder in the Choose target path dialog.
|Mapped as||Remote||The absolute path to the staging folder in the local file system of the remote host.|
|Repository access||Remote||When deploying to the remote host, the plans (artifacts) are placed into a watched repository. The settings in this section describe this repository.|
|Path from root||Remote||The path to the repository folder relative to the local or mounted folder,
or the root of the (S)FTP host.
You can use to select the folder in the Choose target path dialog.
|Name||Remote||Specify the name of the watched repository the way it is defined in the configuration of the remote SpringSource dm Server.|
|Remote connection settings||Remote||The settings for accessing deployed applications.|
|Host||Remote||The fully qualified domain name or the IP address of the SpringSource dm Server host.|
|Port||Remote||The HTTP port of SpringSource dm Server.|
Use this tab to specify which artifacts and/or external resources should be deployed onto the server. (An external resource means a deployable Web component such as a .war file which is not represented by a project artifact. Usually, such components are stored outside of the project scope.)
To add items to the deployment list (shown under Deploy at the server startup), use . For more information, see the table below.

Note that as you change the transport settings, what follows transport= within -Xrunjdwp in the area above also changes. In this way you control the corresponding command-line debugger parameters which you cannot edit directly.
