How to fix IntelliJ issues by looking in the IntelliJ log

TLDR; View the IntelliJ log Help -> ‘Show Log in Explorer’


I experienced an issue when importing maven projects.

I found the answer to my problem on StackOverflow:
“…set Settings > Build, Execution, Deployment > Build Tools > Maven > Importing > JDK for Importer to Use JAVA_HOME…”
The above solution worked for me. But it made me realise that it is harder than it needs to be to find what is going wrong with IntelliJ if you don’t know one trick - how to view the logs with IntelliJ.
