Built-in Action ID's

These are the names of the actions built into IntelliJ IDEA. You can use these ID's and group names in <add-to-group> tags in your plugin's plugin.xml.

Each table shows the actions in a group, whose ID is shown in fixed-width font, along with the ID of its parent groups (for reference) and its displayed name. You can use the group ID in <add-to-group>'s group-id attribute.

Each row in the table represents an action, whose ID can be used in <add-to-group>'s relative-to-action attribute.

Last updated: IDEA 5.0.2 build 3511.
