Configure Maven run configurations once for several projects


I have several maven run configurations that I use on all my projects.

Is there a way to create a run configuration that is available on all the projects I open? It could apply to the currently selected module, for example.

Thanks for your help,

In general it's possible. Close all projects, get Welcome screen. Press Configure, press Project Defaults, press Run Configurations. Create a configuration, Ok to save. It is saved in template project settings, and will be auto-created in every new project.

Another story is can a template configuration hold all settings you need. E.g. you cannot refer to "current IDEA module diirectory" just because IDEA run configurations are not per-module, they belong to a project. But you can refer to IDEA project directory via $PROJECT_DIR$ macro.

Please try and ask specific questions.
