Services tool window

The Services tool window enables you to manage various services that help you during software development, such as run/debug configurations, application servers, database sessions, and Docker connections. Plugin developers can add other services through the IntelliJ platform API.

The main toolbar contains the following buttons and menus that are common for all service types:

The Expand All button

Expand All Ctrl+NumPad +

Expand all items in the list.

The Collapse All button

Collapse All Ctrl+NumPad -

Collapse all items in the list.

The Group By menu

Choose how you want to organize the list of services:

  • Service Type: arrange services by type, such as Run Dashboard, Docker, or Database

  • Service Groups: arrange services by group, such as a build tool or a data source name

The Filter menu

Filter

Choose how you want to filter the list of services.

The Open in New Tab button

Open in New Tab

Move the selected items to a separate tab.

The Add Service menu

Add Service Alt+Insert

Run/debug configurations

Run/debug configurations are not listed in the Services tool window by default. You need to explicitly specify the types of configurations you want to be available and create the corresponding configurations.

Add Run/Debug configurations to the Services window

  1. Select Window | Tool Windows | Services from the main menu or press Alt+8.

  2. In the Services tool window, click Add service, then select Run Configuration Type.

    Services tool window: Add run configuration
  3. Select a run/debug configuration type from the list to add all configurations of this type to the window.

    Note that the tool window will only display the configuration types for which you have created one or more configurations.

Buttons on the toolbar depend on the selected type of the run/debug configuration and can include the following:

The Run button

Run Ctrl+Shift+F10

Run the selected configuration.

The Debug button

Debug ⌃ ⇧ D

Run the selected configuration in Debug mode.

The Stop button

Stop Ctrl+F2

Stop the selected configuration.

The Rerun button

Rerun Ctrl+Shift+F10

Rerun the selected configuration.

The Rerun in Debug Mode button

Rerun in Debug Mode ⌃ ⇧ D

Rerun the selected configuration in Debug mode.

The Filters menu

Filters

Filter the output for the selected configuration. For example, you can select to show warnings and successful steps.

The More menu

More

Additional actions related to the configuration. For example, you can open and modify the settings of the selected configuration.

Application servers

All types of application server run/debug configurations are available in the Services tool window by default. Create an application server configuration, and it will be available in the list of services.

Database service

In the database service, you can manage your sessions and connections. Connection is a physical communication channel and session is a state of information exchange. For example, if you surf a social network, your connection log might have thousands of connection entries between a client and a server while a session log might show you only a single log entry with the number of bytes transferred.

For more information about managing database sessions, refer to Sessions.

Productivity tips

Use tabs

The Services tool window can include a lot of services, which you can group according to their type or create separate tabs for your own custom grouping. For example, you can create a tab that will include the following: the run configuration for the application that you are developing, the Docker container that runs the database used as a backend for your application, and a console for accessing the database.

Hide the services tree

Click The Show Options Menu button in the right part of the Services tool window toolbar and then click Show Services Tree to remove the checkbox. You can also press Ctrl+Shift+T to toggle the services tree.

If you hide the services tree, it is replaced by a services navigation bar. Press Alt+Home to focus the services navigation bar.

Hide, remove, and delete services

Right-click any service and select Delete Delete to completely remove the corresponding run configuration, cloud provider, Docker connection, and so on.

If you don't want to show run/debug configurations of a certain type in the Services tool window, right-click the corresponding configuration and select Remove Configuration Type from Services. This will not remove the actual configuration.

To hide a specific run configuration from the Services tool window, right-click the corresponding configuration and select Hide Configuration. To see all hidden run configurations, click the Add Service menu and select Restore Hidden Configurations.
