VCS UI actions to show the simplified runned command

Answered

Hello, I want to ask is there a plugin OR option for the WebStorm to show the runned git command when I am using some of the VCS actions through the IDE UI ?
I mean for example when I commit throuth the IDE UI (with all files added), I want to see somewhere that it is executing:

git add .
git commit -m "The message from the UI commit window" 

I know that there is a way to see what command is the IDE executing from the Git Log but for example for simple git commit the IDE is executing something like that:

[rn-first-app] git -c credential.helper= -c core.quotepath=false -c log.showSignature=false commit -F J:\Users\someuser\AppData\Local\Temp\git-commit-msg-.txt --
[master ee37d72] the commit message


I am asking that because I have colleagues which are not using the IDE VCS UI because on that way they will forget the git commands for the terminal. The example above is simple but for more complex operations i think it is true. Also on that way the user may learn what git command is executed after the UI action.

Hello Bloodyrax

Once you run any git action via UI then you will see "Console" tab under "Git" toolwindow, there you can see exact commands that there performed by IDE.

May I ask you to elaborate on why do you think it's necessary to know exact git commands when you can use convenient UI actions?

In my company for example not all are using WebStorm. I am using the UI actions from the IDE, but for example if someone ask me for help on his editor for some git problems i don't know how with commands for example to delete 3 specific commits from a branch, to reverse to specific commit in a branch and some more comlicated operations for sure there are many.
Also some of the colleagues who are using WebStorm are not using the UI actions exactly because of that, they don't want to forget these things.
I think it will be good for the user to be able to see which git commands are getting executed under the hood, mainly for more complicated operations which are easy through the UI but maybe harder with the console, also a user may learn the commands in that way.

Could you please elaborate why the existing Console tab in the Git toolwindow doesn't to work? It actually collapses the configuration part (all -c options) wich makes the commands rather clear
