Use this dialog to create, edit, adjust, or remove run/debug configurations, as well as to configure the default templates that will apply to all newly created run/debug configurations.
Project configurations are grouped by configuration types; the default configuration templates are grouped under the Templates node in the left-hand part of the dialog.
When you edit a run configuration (but not a run configuration template), you can specify the following options:
In this field, specify the name for the run/debug configuration. The name will help you identify the created configuration when you choose to edit it later, or when you invoke it, for example, from the Run popup Shift+Alt+F10.
Share through VCS
Select this checkbox to put the run/debug configuration under version control and make it available to other team members.
The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under .idea\runConfigurations folder, while the local run/debug configurations are kept in the .idea\workspace.xml .
Directory that stores your results (for example, an executable file).
Directory that is used for the built application. If you have any code that creates relative files or directories, they will be relative to this directory.
Environment variables that you need to run the application.
Go tool arguments

Delete the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you cannot delete default configurations.
Create a copy of the selected run/debug configuration. Note that you create copies of default configurations.
The button is displayed only when you select a temporary configuration. Click this button to save a temporary configuration as permanent.
View and edit the template (that is, the default run/debug configuration settings). The templates are displayed under the Templates node and used for newly created configurations.
Move the selected run/debug configuration up and down in the list.
The order of configurations in the list defines the order, in which the configurations appear when you choose a run/debug configuration.
Default templates of run/debug configurations are always sorted alphabetically.
To create a folder, select the configurations within a category, click , 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 and buttons.
To remove grouping, select a folder and click .
Click this button to sort configurations in the alphabetical order.
In this area you can specify tasks that must be performed before starting the selected run/debug configuration. The tasks are performed in the order they appear in the list.

If the Check errors checkbox is selected, the compiler will show all the errors and the run configuration will not start.
If the Check errors checkbox is cleared, the compiler will show all the detected errors but the run configuration still will be launched.
Go Command: select to run a Go command before running your program. For example, you can run go generate to generate source code before compilation.
