SSH configuration settings
|Visible only for this project|
Restrict this SSH configuration to the current project. The configuration will not be available in other projects. WebStorm stores such configurations in the project's .idea directory, which you can share between team members in a VCS.
By default, this option is disabled and WebStorm stores the SHH configuration in the IDE configuration directory. In this case, you can use this configuration in any project when working from the current instance of WebStorm.
