Method can be made 'static'

Reports methods which may safely be made static.

A method may be static if it is not synchronized, it does not reference any of its class' instance methods and instance fields, and it is not overridden in a subclass.

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.

Via Settings dialog

Path to the inspection settings via IntelliJ Platform IDE Settings dialog, when you need to adjust inspection settings directly from your IDE.
