IntelliJ IDEA 2023.3 Help

Install plugins from the command line

Install plugins by plugin ID from the JetBrains Marketplace or a custom plugin repository.

You can find the executable for running IntelliJ IDEA in the installation directory under bin. To use this executable as the command-line launcher, add it to your system PATH as described in Command-line interface.

Syntax
idea64.exe installPlugins <plugin-id ...> [repository-url ...]
Examples

Install the Grazie Lite plugin:

idea64.exe installPlugins tanvd.grazi

Install a plugin with the ID com.example.myplugin from a custom repository http://plugins.example.com:8080/updatePlugins.xml:

idea64.exe installPlugins com.example.myplugin http://plugins.example.com:8080/updatePlugins.xml

If it is a public plugin, you can find its ID on the page of the plugin in JetBrains Marketplace. On the Versions tab, click the relevant version to view the plugin ID and other details.
