In my project I have .deploy folder which is created/updated when I deploy my app locally. Is it possible to disable indexing on that folder?

In module view I excluded that folder but it's not helping. Any help would be appreciated.

Mark this folder as Excluded in the File | Project Structure | Modules | Sources tab.

Edit: also make sure it's not added as a library in the project.

Prevent folder from being indexed – JetBrains Rider Support, Hi, How can I stop indexing "node_modules" folder ? It's excluded the folder I blurred is one from the disabled on the next screenshot with settings. my settings: You need to clear Enabled checkboxes to disable libraries. 0. Actually, I found what was wrong. Once of my modules didn't have the target folder excluded and that was causing IntelliJ to always index and since that module is big it would take forever to index it. Solution: Go to "Project Structure" -> "Modules" and excluded all target folders.

if you cannot do it throu the Modules menu because your intellij freezes (like in my case) edit .iml file of your projet and add excludeFolder line as below:

<content url="file://$MODULE_DIR$">
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main/java" isTestSource="false" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/main/resources" type="java-resource" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/test/features" type="java-test-resource" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/test/java" isTestSource="true" />
  <sourceFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/src/test/resources" type="java-test-resource" />
  <excludeFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/node_modules" />
  <excludeFolder url="file://$MODULE_DIR$/target" />
</content>

  • One more solution is to ignore folders/files. stackoverflow.com/a/30686306/4899609
  • real pain if you are using git worktree
  • As I've mentioned above, I did it, but it's not helping.
  • Do you use 10.5.1? Make sure this directory is not added as a library anywhere in your project.
  • This also excludes the file from a lot of other things. I don't want to exclude the file from the project - just the index. I still want the file to appear in the list of changed files so i can commit the file (or view diffs or whatever)
  • Agee with @BT, this is a poor solution since it exclude from the artifacts built by IntelliJ.
  • @dashesy you can map it to the text file in the File Types.
  • This. Thanks. So much easier than trying to figure out a regex under the exclude dialogue haha. +1
  • Works in IntelliJ 15 too.
  • @dudewad where can I find the exclude dialog?
  • Right click on the concerned folder in "project" and next go to "Mark folder as". The other way is go to "settings" and type "directories" into the search field.
  • Works in IntelliJ 2016.1 also.
  • Thanks - was having this issue and this really helped. Added this to each module's iml file. Worked in 2018.1.
  • This is the only way that worked for me in IntelliJ 2019.1
