Autowiring for Bean Class inspection in Spring Boot project


I use IDEA 2016.1.1 and do have a Spring Boot project that uses spring-boot-starter-jdbc and therefore "automagically" instantiates a JdbcTemplate bean during startup when a JDBC driver is found in the class path.

As soon as I declare an autowired field of type JdbcTemplate in a self written Spring bean, the "Autowiring for Bean Class" inspection triggers and shows an error.

Is there any way to tell IDEA that at runtime there will be a JdbcTemplate Bean except from annotate each autowiring with @SuppressWarnings("SpringJavaAutowiringInspection")?

Hello Stefan,

sorry for late reply.

This is caused by not yet complete support of using auto-configured setup in SB applications, please watch You might want to try the workaround for 2016.1.2 given in issue description.

I'd still like to know the answer to this question. In my case, I am creating a test implementation of a JpaRepository in order to test an algorithm that uses the repository. Rather than mocking the interface I want to implement the interface in a test class and provide my test class with a test dataset in the constructor. IntelliJ is reporting an inspection error: "Could not autowire. No beans of type x found". I would like to annotate this constructor to disable this inspection. Is that possible?


Additionally, it would be nice when using the keyboard shortcut CTRL+F1 to see the inspection information, if part of the information displayed in the tooltip would be to explain what annotation could be used to disable the inspection.
