Chat with AI

Install the AI Assistant plugin

This functionality relies on the AI Assistant plugin, which you need to install and enable.

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open settings and then select Plugins.

  2. Open the Marketplace tab, find the AI Assistant plugin, and click Install (restart the IDE if prompted).

Use the AI Assistant tool window to have a conversation with the LLM (Large Language Model), ask questions about your project, or iterate on a task.

AI Assistant takes into consideration the language and technologies used in your project, as well as local changes and version control system commits. You can search for files, classes, and element usages.

Start a new chat

  1. Click AI Assistant on the right toolbar to open AI Assistant.

  2. In the input field, type your question and press Enter to submit your query.

    DataGrip: Asking AI Assistant programming-related questions

AI Assistant keeps the chats during one IDE session. You can find the saved chats in the All Chats list.

All Chats list

Names of the chats are generated automatically and contain the summary of the initial query.

If you want AI Assistant to provide you with a bit more precise answers, you can enable the smart chat mode in Settings | Tools | AI Assistant.

Enable smart mode option in the settings

With this option enabled, AI Assistant might send additional details, such as file types, frameworks used, and any other information that may be necessary for providing context to the LLM.

Create file from snippet

You can create a new file with the AI-generated code right from the AI Assistant chat.

  • In the upper-right corner of the field with the generated code, click Create File from Snippet.

    Create File from Snippet action

    AI Assistant will create a file with the AI-generated code.

    New file created from snippet

    If you have any file opened or selected in the Files tool window Alt+2, the new file will be created in the same folder as the selected file.

    In other cases, the new file will be created in the root project folder.

Add schema context to the generated SQL queries

You can enhance the quality of generated SQL queries with the context of a database schema that you are working with. To do that, attach the schema in AI Assistant tool window. AI Assistant will get access to the structure of the attached schema, providing the LLM with information about it.

To use this feature, you need to grant AI Assistant consent to access the database schema.

Generated query without an attached database schema

Attaching a schema will also improve the results of the context menu AI Actions actions group, for example, Explain Code, Suggest Refactoring, and so on. For more information about those actions, refer to Use AI prompts to explain and refactor your code.

Attach database schema

  1. In the AI Assistant tool window, click the Schema icon Attach Schema above input field and select the schema that you want to attach.

  2. If the Attach Schema dialog appears, click Attach to attach the schema.

Attach your database schema to AI Assistant chat

If you want to allow AI Assistant to always attach the selected schemas, select the Always allow attaching database schemas checkbox in the Attach Schema dialog. Alternatively, enable the Allow attaching database schemas setting in Settings | Tools | AI Assistant.

You can see which schema was attached to your message, and also navigate to that schema in Database Explorer. To do that, click the Attached elements icon Attached elements in your message, then click the schema name.
