IntelliJ IDEA 2020.2 Help

Services tool window

You can manage multiple run/debug configurations in the Services tool window. For example, you can start, pause, and stop several applications, track their status, and examine application-specific details.

Enable the Services tool window

  1. From the main menu, select Run | Edit Configurations or use the selector on the toolbar.

    Opening the Run/Debug Configurations dialog from the toolbar

  2. In the Run/Debug Configurations dialog, select Templates from the list on the left.

  3. In the right-hand pane, expand the Configurations available in Services section.

  4. Click the Add button in the Configurations available in Services section and select the necessary run configuration type.

    You can add or remove multiple configuration types one by one.

    Enabling the Services tool window

    Note that the tool window will only display the configuration types for which you have created one or more configurations.

    Thus, if you add a configuration type for which no configurations exist in the project, this type will not be displayed in the tool window until you create a configuration of this type.

  5. Apply the changes and close the dialog. The Services tool window with the selected configurations will open.
