Name field and Share option
|Name||Use this field to edit the name of the run/debug configuration.
This field is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.
If the directory-based project format is used, the settings for a run/debug configuration are stored in a separate xml file in the .idea\runConfigurations folder if the run/debug configuration is shared and in the .idea\workspace.xml file otherwise.
If the file-based format is used, the settings are stored in the .ipr file for shared configurations or in the .iws file for the ones that are not shared.
This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.
Select the server configuration to be used.
Click Configure to create a new server configuration or edit an existing one. (The Application Servers dialog will open.)
For local CloudBees run/debug configurations, the server configuration is not specified; the Tomcat instance embedded in CloudBees is used. This Tomcat instance is included in CloudBees client libraries which IntelliJ IDEA can download for you.
|Start browser||Both||Select this check box to run the default Web browser to study your application output there.|
|Startup page||Both||In this field, specify the URL the browser should go to when started. In most typical cases, this URL will correspond to the root of your Web application or its starting page.|

|On frame deactivation||Both||
Specify which application update actions should be performed when switching from IntelliJ IDEA to
a different application (for example, a Web browser).
(Frame deactivation means switching to a different application.)
If no update actions are required, select Do nothing. Otherwise, select the necessary update option. Note that the Redeploy an the Restart server options are not available.
|HTTP port||Local||Specify the HTTP port of CloudBees.|

|Host||Remote||For CloudBees, IntelliJ IDEA ignores this setting.|
|Port||Remote||For CloudBees, IntelliJ IDEA ignores this setting.|
Use this tab to specify which artifacts and/or external resources should be deployed onto the server. (An external resource means a deployable Web component such as a .war file which is not represented by a project artifact. Usually, such components are stored outside of the project scope.)
To add items to the deployment list (shown under Deploy at the server startup), use . For more information, see the table below.
