Inspectopedia Help

Duplicate or redundant pattern

Reports file patterns that are redundant as there already are other patterns that define the same scope of files or even a broader one. For example, in [{*.java,*}] the first *.java pattern defines a narrower scope compared to *. That is why it is redundant and can be removed.

Locating this inspection


Can be used to locate inspection in e.g. Qodana configuration files, where you can quickly enable or disable it, or adjust its settings.
