I have a global settings file to share between developers.
I modified the maven.bat file on each developer's machine to add the -gs option to point to the global settings in a shared drive.
When running from the command line, maven picks up the global settings as expected.
I have since noticed that IntelliJ is not calling this maven.bat file at all but is instead building the java command by itself.
In the maven runner configuration in IntelliJ I can define JVM options but not actual maven options. (See this similar issue raised in Jenkins some time back https://issues.jenkins-ci.org/browse/JENKINS-8704)
Is there any way I set the custom maven global settings option? Or tell IntelliJ to use the maven.bat file instead of buildind it's own command?
