IntelliJ IDEA supports both local and global tags. Local tags are stored in the file .hg/localtags in the repository, global tags are stored in the file .hgtags.
Currently tagging specific changesets is supported only in the command line mode in the embedded Terminal. To launch the Terminal, choose (see Working with Embedded Local Terminal for details). After commit, tags appear in the Log tab of the Changes tool window.
