Currently, there are several limitations for profiling Maven goals:
Profiling tools in IntelliJ IDEA do not support Maven profiles, executions, and versions. That is why, some complex configurations might not profile correctly.
Profiling of specific versions of the mentioned goals is not supported (for example:
You cannot profile the goals if they are configured in a way that more than one process is created during their execution.
Profiling of the
failsafe:integration-testgoals is possible only in projects without modules. You can, however, profile a specific module provided that it has no sub-modules.
Profiling is not possible if there are certain arguments in a plugin configuration:
If the Exec Maven Plugin configuration has
<arguments>in pom.xml, the values in
<arguments>are skipped during the execution of the
