Also, on this step, you can select a directory with SQL scripts and attach it to your project. The directory and all subdirectories can be accessed in the Files tool window ( ).
Quick tour around the interface
By default, when you run DataGrip for the first time, some control elements are hidden. To access these elements, you must enable tool windows or perform certain actions (for example, run a query).
Tool windows in DataGrip are divided according to an area of development tasks or subtasks. By default, DataGrip includes the following tool windows:
Database(Alt+2): includes a list of data sources and all actions that are associated with them.
Files(N/A): displays a current scope for search and code inspection operations.
TODO(Alt+6): displays a list of TODO comments in a project.
Structure (Alt+7): displays a query structure.
Version Control(Alt+9): displays version control functionality. To use this tool window, install a corresponding VCS plugin. Read more about VCS plugins in Version control with DataGrip.
Database Changes: displays all changes that you make in a database, and logs all system and user queries.
Event Log: displays all system events.
Favorites: displays frequently-used objects that you added as favorite ( ).
Enable tool windows
To enable tool windows, perform one of the following actions:
Navigate toand select necessary tool windows.
Use a shortcut or assign a shortcut in.
Click icons of tool windows that are located along the IDE border.
Hover the pointer over the Tool windows widget.
To try and evaluate DataGrip, you can download and install its trial version for free. The trial version is available for 30 days, whereupon you need to obtain and register a license.
Do one of the following:
On the Welcome screen, click Configure | Manage License
On the main menu, select Help | Register
Select how you want to register DataGrip:
Register using the JetBrains Account.
For more information, see What is JetBrains Account?
Register using an activation code.
Register using a License Server.
To override the URL of the system proxy during initial DataGrip startup, use the
-Djba.http.proxyproperty, which can be added as a JVM option.
When performing silent install or managing DataGrip installations on multiple machines, you can set the
JETBRAINS_LICENSE_SERVERenvironment variable to point the installation to the license server URL.
If you have plugins that require a license, then instead of the License Activation dialog, open the Licenses dialog by clicking from the main menu.
The Licenses dialog contains a list of licenses and shows their states:
Expired: Renew your license to continue.
Grace period: You have several days until the license expires.
Evaluation period: Use without an active license.
Active license: Use until the expiry date.
To configure a license, click the Edit button, which opens the License Activation dialog.
Download the latest version of DataGrip.
Launch the setup as described in Download and install DataGrip.
Choose whether you want to uninstall the existing DataGrip version together with its settings, caches and local history and follow the instructions of the installation wizard.
Out of the box, standalone DataGrip installation is configured to check for updates automatically. It will notify you when a new version is available:
DataGrip updates are usually patch-based: they are applied to the existing installation and only require you to restart the IDE.
If the patch download takes a long time, you can send it to the background and continue working. Once download is complete, you will be prompted to restart, which should finalize the update.
If you do not want to install the proposed update for some reason, you can ignore it by clicking the Ignore This Update button in the update dialog. The ignored build's number will be added to the Ignored updates list, and you will not be prompted to install this particular build until you remove it from the list.
Manage DataGrip through Toolbox App
Toolbox App is a control panel that allows you to manage all JetBrains developer tools, including DataGrip, as well as your projects, from a single point of access. It lets you launch the IDEs, maintain different versions of the same tool, install updates and roll them back if needed. It also remembers your JetBrains Account and uses it to automatically log you in when you install and register new tools.
Launch the setup file.
Now you can manage existing tools, install new tools, and download updates:
Perform silent installation on Windows
Silent installation is performed without any user interface. It can be used by network administrators to install DataGrip on a number of machines and avoid interrupting other users.
To perform silent install, run the installer with the following switches:
/S: Enable silent install
/D: Specify the path to the installation directory
/CONFIG: Specify the path to the silent configuration file
Silent configuration file
You can download the silent configuration file for DataGrip at https://download.jetbrains.com/datagrip/silent.config
The silent configuration file defines options for installing DataGrip. With default options, silent installation is performed only for the current user (
mode=user). If you want to install DataGrip for all users, open the silent configuration file with a text editor, change the value of the installation mode option (
mode=admin) and run the installer as an administrator.
Uninstall DataGrip silently
To silently uninstall DataGrip, run the uninstaller with the
/S switch as an administrator. The uninstaller is located in the installation directory under bin.
