IntelliJ Plugin

This topic describes how to enable the Optimizely IntelliJ plugin into any IntelliJ platform-based IDEs.

Optimizely IntelliJ Plugin

This plugin provides quick contextual access to the configuration of your Optimizely Project, and is available for IntelliJ Platform based IDEs. It is available for download on the Jetbrains Plugin Marketplace.

Based around the Optimizely Java SDK, the plugin provides a set of shortcuts and contextual links back to the relevant Optimizely entities for your development.

After installation, use the menu or keyboard shortcut to set your SDK key, which corresponds to a particular Environment in your Optimizely Full Stack Project and is available under the Settings tab.

Once the SDK key is in place, the active Experiments, Features, Attributes and Events from your Environment will be accessible both via the Dropdown menu under Tools and via keyboard shortcuts.
You can also use default autocomplete (Go, Java, Kotlin, or Python) for feature methods such as isFeatureEnabled and getFeatureVariable to return only a feature key list. The same holds true for experimental methods.

Menu Options

Set SDK Key

Set or update your SDK Key.
If the SDK key is set, it is displayed at the top level and the Jump To menu is available.

Jump To

Provide direct links to your Experiments and Features within the Optimizely application, opening within your default OS browser.

List Experiment Keys

List Attribute Keys
