Grouped run configurations

Use this dialog box to create, edit, adjust, or remove run/debug configurations, as well as to configure the default templates that will apply to all newly created run/debug configurations.

The behavior of this checkbox depends on whether the Single instance only option is selected for a particular run/debug configuration.

  • If this checkbox is not selected (or in case of multiple instances), WebStorm starts the new process silently.
