Code With Me Help

Disable Code With Me session sharing

Starting with the IntelliJ IDEA 2021.2 version, you can disable session creation in the IDE by declaring isCodeWithMeHostEnabled parameter in the following configuration files.

Being set in false, this parameter blocks an attempt to generate a session link in the IDE. By default, Code With Me is enabled. In the case of a not-found or not-properly parsed file, Code With Me is considered as allowed.

Please pay attention to the fact, this setting won't be useful if end-users can edit these files with admin permissions by themselves.
