IntelliJ IDEA 2017.1 Help

Using ClearCase Integration

This feature is supported in the Ultimate edition only.

With the ClearCase integration enabled, you can perform basic ClearCase operations from inside IntelliJ IDEA.

In this section:


  • ClearCase client is installed on your computer.
  • IntelliJ IDEA comes bundled with ClearCase plugin. This plugin is turned on by default. If it is not, make sure that the plugin is enabled.
  • ClearCase settings are defined in the ClearCase page of the Settings dialog.
  • ClearCase integration is enabled for the current project root or directory.

ClearCase support

  • When ClearCase integration with IntelliJ IDEA is enabled, the ClearCase item appears on the VCS menu, and on the context menus of the Editor and Project views.
  • The files in the folders under the ClearCase control are highlighted according to their status. See File Status Highlights for file status highlighting conventions.
  • Modifications results are shown in the Version Control tool window.
  • When using ClearCase integration, it is helpful to open the Version Control tool window. The Console tab displays the following data:
    • All commands generated based on the settings you specify through the IntelliJ IDEA user interface.
    • Information messages concerning the results of executing generated ClearCase commands.
    • Error messages.
