WebStorm 2018.2 Help

Configuring Inspection for Different Scopes

By default, all enabled code inspections analyze all files in your project. Depending on your needs, you can run the same inspection in more than one scope of files with different settings.

If one file is included in two or more scopes, and you enable an inspection in these scopes, WebStorm will process them according to their order in the list of scopes — the uppermost scope will have the highest priority, and therefore, it will be analyzed first.

  1. In the Settings/Preferences dialog (Ctrl+Alt+S), select Editor | Inspection.

  2. Select any inspection from the list.

  3. From the In All Scopes list, select Edit Scopes Order.
