For a number of reasons of various nature you may be not authenticated to the remote server while the authentication dialog box does not appear, as you might expect. Instead, IntelliJ IDEA displays the corresponding message in a pop-up window in the bottom-left corner of the editor.
The authentication dialog appears immediately only when you attempt to access a URL address outside your working copies. This feature applies to Perforce, Subversion, and CVS.
- Click the Notifications Pending button on the Status bar.
- In the Notifications pop-up window that opens, click the link Click to fix.
- In the authentication dialog box that opens, specify your credentials.
