Result of object allocation ignored

Reports object allocations where the allocated object is ignored and neither assigned to a variable nor used in another way.

Such allocation expressions are legal in Java, but are usually either unintended, or evidence of a very odd object initialization strategy.

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.
