IntelliJ IDEA 2021.3 Help

Integration with application servers

By default, IntelliJ IDEA doesn't know what application servers you have installed and want to use. You need a local installation whether you want to run it locally or connect to a remotely running server.

Define an application server

  1. Press Ctrl+Alt+S to open the IDE settings and select Build, Execution, Deployment | Application Servers.

  2. Click the Add button and select the application server.

  3. In the dialog that opens, specify the location of the installation directory and click OK.

    If you specify the correct location, IntelliJ IDEA should detect the version and set everything up.

How to define an application server

You can also define the application server from the run configuration.
