Unfortunately, at the moment, our new Settings Sync plugin doesn't work with JetBrains Gateway; it works with ordinary desktop IDE instances. We haven't got plans for the near future to implement the feature for Gateway.

Very sad to hear but hopefully it will work soon otherwise I can't connect my Windows client to the gateway on WSL without manually copying loads of settings and plugins across.

Olga Mulina Is there a place where we can put in feature requests? Maybe with enough upvotes there will be a motivation to add it to the roadmap. The new settings sync is  awesome and it's really a bummer the JetBrains Gateway doesn't support it and I need to keep re-doing all my configurations again.

That's specially a pain because the projects in the gateway doesn't seem to share settings between them and in my company we work on several small projects at the same time (my gateway, for example, has at least 12 different projects) and I need to configure the same things over and over and over.

Or maybe there's an alternative we can use?

Bernardosouzareis, I made an issue in our YouTrack regarding this question. 
Unfortunately, the task is quite difficult; that's why it hasn't been implemented yet and will not be included in the 2023.1 release. However, please be assured that we are aware of it and are working on it. Thank you for your understanding.

Olga Mulina thanks for the response. I can imagine how difficult it is given how complex the architecture of the Jetbrains IDEs are. To be honest I wouldn't be having all this trouble if it wasn't for Windows WSL and all the bugs that are associated with it, so I appreciate the alternatives Jetbrains has been offering lately to work around some of that (like using Jetbrains Gateway for better performance with WSL).

I understand that it's complex, but I'm just adding my thumbs up here as well. I have been excited for the remote development feature so that I can do all of my .NET development in WSL2. Unfortunately it feels like a no-go if I can't sync my Rider settings to the Gateway as well :(

I'm sad to hear this.

Using Jetbrains IDEs directly inside WSL2 with a XServer is the current best solution, but it's not really ideal.

I wish Gateway really hope gateway support for it improves.

I even tried manually copying settings (exporting to zip, then importing) and to no avail. So, I disabled repository based settings synchronization because this option appeared in JetBrains Gateway… and the button does nothing.

So, both options exist in PhpStorm's (gateway) interface, yet none of them actually work? Odd.

Hello,

We are still working on settings synchronization. Please follow this issue for progress:

https://youtrack.jetbrains.com/issue/RDCT-1/Settings-synchronization

Can you please share your experience in more detail? Did you try to import a keymap or all settings at once?
