Run/Debug Configuration: Compound

Run | Edit Configurations | new | Compound

Use this dialog to create configurations containing multiple run/debug configurations that you can launch at once. This is useful, for example, if you want to launch various automated tests. Each configuration will be available in a separate tab in the Run or Debug tool window.

Press new to select which of the existing configurations you want to include into the Compound configuration, and fill in the following fields:

Name Specify the name of the new Run/Debug Configuration.
Share Select this check box to make the run/debug configuration available to other team members.

The shared run/debug configurations are kept in separate xml files under .idea\runConfigurations folder, while the local run/debug configurations are kept in the .idea\workspace.xml.

This check box is not available when editing the run/debug configuration defaults.

Another case where the Compound run configuration could be very useful is running/debugging a front end web application and a backend REST service at the same time. With the debugger attached, this will let you set a breakpoint in any of the projects and debug the entire flow of the application:
