Why Has The Run Configuration Directory Changed?


I just noticed that IDEA is trying to save run configurations in a .run directory in the project instead of .idea/runConfigurations

Keeping all the IDEA config under the .idea directory makes managing IDE config much easier.

What was the logic behind this?

Why would you change something that has been working fine for over a decade?

Do you have "Store as project file" enabled in Run/Debug configuration settings? https://www.jetbrains.com/help/idea/run-debug-configuration-application.html

@...:  We do, but an option is provided to put the Project-based Run Configuration in either `.run` or `.idea/runConfigurations`.  What is the purpose of the `.run` directory vs the original `.idea/runConfigurations` directory?

Found: Store Run Configurations as Files.
