IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 Help

Managing Enterprise Plugin Repositories

To be able to use plugin repositories other than the JetBrains Plugin Repository (e.g., your enterprise plugin repositories), you should specify the URLs of such repositories in IntelliJ IDEA.

To manage the list of enterprise plugin repositories

  1. In the Settings dialog, click Plugins.
  2. Click Browse repositories.
  3. In the Browse Repositories dialog that opens, click Manage repositories.
  4. Use the Custom Plugin Repositories dialog that opens, to manage the list of URLs for custom (enterprise) plugin repositories:
    • To add a repository URL, click /help/img/idea/2017.1/new.png (Alt+Insert). In the Add Repository dialog, specify the repository URL and click OK. (You can use the Check Now button to make sure that the specified URL is correct: IntelliJ IDEA will try to connect to the repository.)
    • To edit a repository URL, select the URL and click /help/img/idea/2017.1/edit1.png (Enter). In the Edit Repository dialog, edit the URL and click OK.
    • To remove a URL from the list, select the URL and click /help/img/idea/2017.1/delete.png (Alt+Delete).

    Click OK in the Custom Plugin Repositories dialog.

  5. Click Close in the Browse Repositories dialog.
  6. Click OK in the Settings dialog.

As an alternative, you can specify the list of URLs for the enterprise plugin repositories in one of the following files:


    In this case, the following line should be added to this file:

  • IntelliJ IDEA.exe.vmoptions

    In this case, the following line should be added to this file:


Both files reside in the bin directory under the IntelliJ IDEA installation folder.

Note that a repository added via this property is not visible in the Manage Repositories dialog.
