IntelliJ IDEA 2020.3 Help

Configure coverage

Configure code coverage behavior

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog Ctrl+Alt+S , select Build, Execution, Deployment | Coverage.

  2. Define how the collected coverage data will be processed:

    • Show options before applying coverage to the editor: show the Code Coverage dialog every time you run a new run configuration with code coverage.

    • Do not apply collected coverage: discard the new code coverage results.

    • Replace active suites with the new one: discard the active suites and use the new one every time you launch a new run configuration with code coverage.

    • Add to the active suites: add new code coverage suites to the active suites every time you launch a new run configuration with code coverage.

    • Ignore implicitly declared default constructors: exclude the implicitly declared default constructors from coverage statistics. No-arg constructors that are declared explicitly will remain included.

    • Ignore empty private constructors of utility classes: exclude from coverage statistics empty private constructors in classes where all other methods are static.

  3. Select the Activate Coverage View checkbox to open the Coverage tool window automatically.
