Webstorm different eslint config for each folder

I have javascript project which contain front-end and back-end folders. Each of those folders holds different eslint config file. Problem is that I cannot setup Webstorm to auto detect eslint for current folder. Is that possible or not? As I can see, it can be set only one eslint per project which makes Webstorm unusable for javascript full-stack development. Is there any workaround?

In Languages and Frameworks > Javascript > Code Quality Tools > ESLint > "ESLint package" points to eslintrc file in back-end folder. "Configuration file" is set to Automatic search option.

When I open file from front-end folder it did not apply lint from it's eslintrc, but from back-end folder. There is an error which shows that it search for plugin in back-end node_modules eslint folder instead of front-end one.

This means that "WebStorm first looks for a .eslintrc or package.json in the folder with the file to be linted, then in its parent folder, and so on up to the project root" is not working

It's working if you have a single ESLint installation in your project. But you have multiple one - this is not currently supported. Please follow https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/WEB-25561 for updates
