This page appears in the Settings/Preferences dialog, when Settings Repository plugin is enabled.

The plugin is bundled with PyCharm and activated by default. If it is disabled, you can manually enable the plugin.

Use this page to configure the Settings Repository feature that allows you to share your IDE settings between different instances of PyCharm (or other IntelliJ platform-based) products installed on different computers.

Auto SyncSelect this check box, if you want your local settings to be automatically synchronized with the settings stored in the repository every time you perform an Update Project or a Push operation, or when you close your project or exit PyCharm.

If this option is disabled, you can manually update your settings by choosing VCS | Sync Settings from the main menu.
