|Keep projects files in||Select this check box to specify the location of your project's files after the import. For example, when you import a project and want to keep the |
|Import Maven projects automatically||Select this check box, if you want IntelliJ IDEA to perform reimport automatically each time you change your |
|Create IntelliJ IDEA modules for aggregator projects (with 'pom' packaging)||If this check box is selected, IntelliJ IDEA Maven Modules will be created for each module included in the |
|Create module groups for multi-module Maven projects||If this check box is selected, IntelliJ IDEA will create a module group from an aggregative Maven project, with the nested modules included in this group.|
|Keep source and test folders on reimport||If this check box is selected, all the source and test folders will be preserved on every import. |
If this check box is cleared, all previously configured source and test folders will be removed on every import.
By default, this check box is set as follows:
|Exclude build directory |
|Select this check box to exclude a build directory from the project. This might be useful, if you want to speed up the project's importing process . If this check box is cleared, IntelliJ IDEA will index files in the build directory every time you import a project which might take additional time.|
|Use Maven output directories||If this check box is not selected, the build will be created in the regular IntelliJ IDEA's output directory |
If this check box is selected, the build is generated in the Maven's output directory, and the results of IntelliJ IDEA's compilation are reused. However, IntelliJ IDEA itself does not reuse Maven build results, and performs compilation from scratch.
|Generated sources folders||Specify the directory of your source root when you reimport a project. |
You can select one of the following options:
|Phase to be used for folders update||Select Maven phase to be used for folders update. This might be useful, if you adjust your plugins so that additional sources are loaded at some phase.|
|Automatically download||Select the corresponding check boxes to automatically download sources (Sources) and documentation comments (Documentation) on opening Maven projects.|
|Dependency types||Use this field to specify dependency types that you want to include when you reimport your project.|

When you specify the options, follow the following rules:
|JDK for importer||Use this drop-down list to specify which JDK to use when the maven project is imported.|
You can choose one of the following options:
|Generate Flex compiler configuration files when importing Flexmojos projects|| If this check box is selected, when importing Flexmojos projects, the Flex compiler configuration files are generated automatically. |
The automatic generation of the configuration files is a rather time-consuming process, especially for large projects. Besides, for the reasons independent of IntelliJ IDEA, the automatic generation of the configuration files may sometimes be impossible or may lead to erroneous results.
In all such cases, you may want to turn this option off and generate the Flex compiler configuration files from the command line using this command:
|Create run configuration for Spring Boot application||Select this option if you want IntelliJ IDEA to automatically create a run/debug configuration for Spring Boots projects on Maven import.|
