Import Maven Dependencies in Intellij Idea

Import Maven dependencies in IntelliJ IDEA

IntelliJ should download and add all your dependencies to the project's classpath automatically as long as your POM is compliant and all the dependencies are available.

When importing Maven projects into IntelliJ an information box usually comes up asking you if you want to configure Auto-Import for Maven projects. That means that if you make any changes to your POM those changes will be loaded automatically.

You can enable such feature going to File > Settings > Maven > Importing, there is a checkbox that says "Import Maven projects automatically".

If that doesn't help, then I would suggest to make a full clean-up and start again:

  • Close your project window (and IntelliJ) and remove all *.iml files and all .idea folders (there should be one per module)
  • Run mvn clean install from the command line
  • Re-import the project into IntelliJ and pay attention when it asks you to enable auto-import

IntelliJ 2016 Update:

The Import Maven Projects automatically setting has been moved to Build, Execution, Deployment > Build Tools > Maven > Importing in your IntelliJ preferences.

Maven Dependencies not imported in IntelliJ 2020.2.4

Ok I solved it.
I had ${version} in the pom because I was using the command "mvn clean install -Dversion=1" to pass that as parameter. Apparently IntelliJ does his checks on the pom before the build even starts, so changing the version directly in the pom did the trick!

Force Intellij IDEA to reread all maven dependencies

Press Ctrl+Shift+A to find actions, and input "reload", you will find the "Reload All Maven Projects".

On a Mac, use ++A instead.

Maven dependencies in IntelliJ project

First try to build your project in IntelliJ, Build -> Rebuild Project. If that does not help, try File -> Invalidate cache/ restart..

Intellij IDE not downloading dependencies after pom update

IntelliJ is not recognizing Maven Dependencies

IntelliJ seems to handle an Index for all dependencies inside the project. And this Index was not correctly handled in my case by IntelliJ.

But I found out that I can manually clear this cache/index by using following function:

File > Invalidate Caches / Restart...

Intellij idea cannot resolve anything in maven

In IntelliJ 12.1.4 I went through Settings --> Maven --> Importing and made sure the following was selected:

  1. Import Maven projects automatically
  2. Create IDEA modules for aggregator projects
  3. Keep source...
  4. Exclude build dir...
  5. Use Maven output...
  6. Generated souces folders: "detect automatically"
  7. Phase to be...: "process-resources"
  8. Automatically download: "sources" & "documentation"
  9. Use Maven3 to import project
    • VM options for importer: -Xmx512m

This took me from having a lot of unresolved import statements to having everything resolved. I think the key here was using Maven3 to import project... Hopefully this helps.
