Reset the IntelliJ Plugin to default settings

If you would like to start the Diffblue Cover IntelliJ plugin from a “clean slate”, the existing plugin settings files should be deleted. The plugin settings files are stored in the user’s IntelliJ profile directory; the default location is dependent on OS and IntelliJ edition and version:

IntelliJ Community Edition:

Windows: %APPDATA%\JetBrains\IdeaC(version)

Linux: ~/.config/JetBrains/IdeaC(version)

MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/.IdeaC(version)

IntelliJ Professional Edition:

Windows: %APPDATA%\JetBrains\IntelliJIdea(version)

Linux: ~/.config/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea(version)

MacOS: ~/Library/Application Support/JetBrains/IntelliJIdea(version)

Deleting settings

To delete the plugin settings, perform the following steps:

  1. Close any open sessions of IntelliJ.
  2. Navigate to the appropriate IntelliJ profile directory (as detailed above).
  3. Navigate further to the subdirectory: config/options
  4. Delete all of these files if they are present:
    • CoverAnalyticsInstallationID.xml
    • CoverSettingsConfig.xml
    • CoverTirIndexes.xml
    • coverVersions.xml
  5. Restart IntelliJ.
