Locate file/folder in remote host.

I would like to right click on a local file or folder, and choose a "locate in remote view" option.
This would open the remote host viewer and highlight the matching file/folder.

Is this option available anywhere? Or at least have the "remote view" automatically expand all deployment paths when it opens for the first time?

Thanks,
Dave

Hello Dave,

All JetBrains IDEs (including PhpStorm and WebStorm) have Select in action (Alt+F1 shortcut on Windows) available in different contexts (editor, Project view etc.). After you have configured deployment mappings, you'll find Remote host option as one of the possible targets (it's number 2). Similar way you can navigate backwards from Remote Host view to e.g. Project view.

Or at least have the "remote view" automatically expand all deployment paths when it opens for the first time?


Please file a feature request at http://youtrack.jetbrains.net/issues/WI#newissue=yes so you can track the progress.

Regards,
Kirill

I know this is an old question, but I have a problem with this... I have already configured deployment targets and mappings (4 possible targets), and when I click "Navigate > Select in" option, "Remote Host" is grayed out and it is not clickable, what else do I have to do?

Just a guess .. but perhaps you have not marked one of those targets as a Default.

Thanks @Andriy. I configured a target as Default and I can get it working, but I thought that a target selector would be available after selecting "Remote Host".

Thanks anyway
