JetBrains Rider 2017.3 Help

Running SSH Terminal

You can launch an SSH Session right from JetBrains Rider. By running commands in a dedicated SSH terminal, you can access data on a remote Web server via an SSH tunnel, mainly upload and download files.

Prepare to work in the SSH Terminal

  1. Make sure the SSH Remote Run plugin is enabled. The plugin is activated by default. If the plugin is disabled, enable it on the Plugins settings page as described in Enabling and Disabling Plugins.
  2. Make sure, an SSH server is available in the destination environment: a remote Web server.
  3. Register an account on the SSH server in the destination environment and generate a pair of SSH keys or a password, depending on the server policy.
  4. Appoint the destination environment and specify the settings to establish connection with it:
    1. Open the Settings/Preferences by pressing Ctrl+Alt+S or by choosing File | Settings for Windows and Linux or JetBrains Rider | Preferences for macOS, and click SSH Terminal under Tools. The SSH Terminal page opens.
    2. In the Connection settings area, appoint the destination environment:
      • Deployment server: select this option to have the commands in the SSH Terminal executed on the local or remote Web server accessible through one of the server access configurations. From the drop-down list, choose the server access configuration that specifies the destination environment and the settings to establish connection to it.
        • Select server on every run: if this option is selected, you will have to choose the desired server access configuration from the pop-up window, every time you choose Tools | Start SSH Session on the main menu.
        • If the desired server access configuration does not appear in the drop-down list, click the link Configure Servers, and define one in the Deployment page. For details, see the Configuring Synchronization with a Remote Host section.
    3. From the Default encoding drop-down list, select the desired encoding to be used in the SSH terminal.

To launch the SSH Terminal

  1. On the main menu, choose Tools | Start SSH Session.
  2. Depending on the connection settings, defined in the Tools | SSH Terminal page of JetBrains Rider settings (Ctrl+Alt+S), the following types of behavior are possible:
    • If the option Deployment server has been selected, the SSH Terminal will provide control over the data on the local or remote Web server accessible through the server access configuration selected from the list. For details, see Configuring Synchronization with a Web Server.
    • If the option Select server on every run has been selected, JetBrains Rider will show a pop-up list to choose the desired server access configuration from.
