Disabling and Enabling Inspections

If you think that some inspections report about the problems that you are not interested in, you can disable such inspections. Note that when you disable an inspection, it is disabled in the current inspection profile; in all other profiles, it remains enabled.

There are several ways to disable/enable inspections:

  • Using the Inspections settings settings page - this is the main interface for managing inspections; here you can see at once, which inspections are enabled or disabled in all inspection profiles.
  • Using the intention actions - this is the way to disable a highlighted code issues right in the editor.
  • In the Inspection tool window - this is a quick way to disable uninteresting issues when analyzing inspection results. Note that here you can only disable inspections.
