Configuring Inspection for Different Scopes
By default, all enabled code inspections apply to all project files. If necessary, you can configure each code inspection (enable/disable, change its severity level and options) individually for different scopes. Such configurations, like any other inspection settings, are saved and applied as part of a specific profile.
There may be complicated cases when an inspection has different configurations associated with different scopes. When such inspection is executed in a file belonging to some or all of these scopes, the settings of the highest priority scope-specific configuration are applied. The priorities are defined by the relative position of the inspection's scope-specific configuration in inspection settings: the uppermost configuration has the highest priority. The Everywhere else configuration always has the lowest priority.
