Run/Debug Configuration: Compound

Run | Edit Configurations | icons general add svg | Compound


Use this dialog to create configurations containing multiple run/debug configurations that you can launch at once. This is useful, for example, if you want to launch various automated tests. Each configuration will be available in a separate tab in the Run or Debug tool window.

Press icons general add svg to select which of the existing configurations you want to include into the Compound configuration, and fill in the following fields:

ItemDescription
Name In this text box, specify the name for the run/debug configuration. The name will help you identify the created configuration when you choose to edit it later, or when you invoke it, for example. from the Run popup (Shift+Alt+F10).
Share 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, or 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 otherwise.
