Police minimum version by project.


IntelliJ community. 

TlL;DR:  Can I specify a minimum version for IntelliJ IDE through a file in the repository?

I am looking for ways of checking that developers are using an up-to-date version of IntelliJ. This is intended to police laziness/ignorance rather than malice, so I am not concerned particularly with the system being straight forward to work around. 

I do not have control over developers personal systems, however I do have control over the git repository and as such can add policing through that. 

I have to potential approaches:
1. Force a minimum level through configuration files and check that the version never gets older.   (I would be responsible for setting a minimum version)
2. Insist that IntelliJ logs its running version and insist that any commits are newer than a particular version. 

Thankyou in advance!

Right now, the functionality you described is available only as part of our new product Toolbox Enterprise. Among other features, it allows you to distribute approved versions and restrict specific IDE versions in your team/organization. Toolbox Enterprise is still in early access phase. You can request a demo or to be a part of the early access testing here: https://www.jetbrains.com/toolbox-enterprise/
