PyCharm Edu 2019.2 Help

Running Inspection by Name

Rather than running all enabled inspections, PyCharm Edu makes it possible to exactly specify the desired inspection by its name and run it to inspect the code in the specific scope.

To run a code inspection by name

  1. Open the desired file in the editor. Alternatively select files or directories in the Project Tool Window. For multiple selection, click the items while holding down the Ctrl key. The initial inspection scope will be confined to the opened file or the selection.

  2. Press Ctrl+Shift+Alt+I.

  3. In the pop-up frame that opens, start typing the inspection name. As you type, the suggestion list shrinks to show the matching inspection only.

    If you are not sure that you are selecting the correct inspection, you can view its description. To do so, select an inspection in the popup and press Ctrl+Q.

    The Specify Inspection Scope dialog opens.
  4. In the Inspection scope area, specify which files should be inspected.
    • To have the source code of the entire project inspected, select the Whole Project option.

    • If you are using version control integration, you can choose to only inspect uncommitted files.

    • To run an inspection for the currently opened file, or the file(s)/folder(s) selected in the Project view, select the File/Module <name> option.

    • To apply inspect code in a specific scope, select the Custom scope option, then choose the desired scope from the list or click Browse the Browse button and configure a new scope in the Scopes dialog.

  5. To have test source files inspected too, select the Include test sources checkbox.

  6. To apply inspection only in files matching the specific mask, select the File Masks(s) and specify the file mask. Use comma to separate multiple file masks.

  7. Click OK to run the inspection.

  8. Examine inspection results.
