Install the CVS Integration plugin

To enable version control in DataGrip, install the CVS Integration plugin.

  1. Open Settings | Plugins.

  2. Click Install JetBrains plugin.

  3. In the Browse JetBrains Plugins window, type CVS Integration in the search field.

  4. To install the plugin, click Install and restart DataGrip.

With the CVS integration enabled, you can perform basic CVS operations from inside DataGrip.

In this section:


  • DataGrip comes bundled with the CVS plugin. This plugin is turned on by default. If it is not, make sure that the plugin is enabled.

  • DataGrip CVS integration does not require a standalone CVS client. All you need is an account in your CVS repository.

  • CVS integration is enabled for the current project root or directory.

CVS support

  • When CVS integration with DataGrip is enabled, the CVS item appears on the VCS menu, and on the context menus of the Editor and the Files tool window.

  • The files in the folders under the CVS control are highlighted according to their status. See File Status Highlights for file status highlighting conventions.

  • Modifications results are shown in the Version Control tool window.

  • When using CVS integration, it is helpful to open the Version Control tool window. The Console tab displays the following data:
    • All commands generated based on the settings you specify through the DataGrip user interface.

    • Information messages concerning the results of executing generated CVS commands.

    • Error messages.
