IntelliJ IDEA 2020.2 Help

Maven. Ignored Files

Use this page to specify the pom.xml files or their paths of Maven modules, which you want to exclude from the project when you ignore a Maven subproject.

Path patternsEnter the comma-separated list of paths to be ignored during the build. Wildcards are honored. For example, entering * will ignore all the files in the project. You can use Maven tool window to edit the specified patterns.
Ignored filesCheck the individual files to be ignored during the build. If you have a multi-module project, IntelliJ IDEA lists all POM files of your project. Selecting the checkbox against a POM file will equal ignoring the project or module in the Maven structure. You can also use the Maven tool window to ignore or unignore projects from the importing.
