With the Database script configuration, you can run your database scripts on created data sources.

Run/Debug Configuration for database scripts
ItemDescription
Target data source / schema

Specify databases or schemas against which you want to run your database scripts. This setting is dialect-dependent.

If you select a data source as a target, DataGrip displays a schema in which the script will be run. It is the default schema.

To add a data source, click the Add button (The Add button).

Script textType your script that you want to run against the specified target (for example, SELECT * FROM actor).
Script filesSelect files with scripts that you want to run (for example, an SQL file). To add files, click the Add button (the Add button) and navigate to files that you want to run. If a script contains schema switching, you will see a warning (Warning).

Common settings

When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:

Item

Description

Name

Specify a name for the run/debug configuration.

Allow parallel run

Select to allow running multiple instances of this run configuration in parallel.

Store as project file

Save the file with the run configuration settings to share it with other team members. The default location is .idea/runConfigurations. However, if you do not want to share the .idea directory, you can save the configuration to any other directory within the project.

By default, it is disabled, and DataGrip stores run configuration settings in .idea/workspace.xml.

Toolbar

The tree view of run/debug configurations has a toolbar that helps you manage configurations available in your database as well as adjust default configurations templates.

Move into new folder / Create new folder

Move into new folder / Create new folder. You can group run/debug configurations by placing them into folders.

To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click Folder, and specify the folder name. If only a category is in focus, an empty folder is created.

Then, to move a configuration into a folder, between the folders or out of a folder, use drag or Move Up and Move Down buttons.

To remove grouping, select a folder and click Remove Configuration.

Sort configurations Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
