Temporary Configurations

In CLion, a temporary configuration is created every time you run/debug a test, test suite, fixture, or a main() entry using the gutter icons icons actions execute / icons runConfigurations testState run run. You can see them greyed out in the list of the available configurations.

By default, there can be created only five temporary configurations per project, so when you create the sixth configuration, the one created first gets removed, and so on. You can change this limit in the Temporary configurations limit field in Edit Configurations | Templates.

  • In the Edit Configurations dialog, select the temporary configuration in the list, and click Save button.
