We would like to thank all community members that have tried the BETA version. In order to return back to stable plugin version, do the following:

  • Open the IDEA Settings → Plugins dialog.
  • Uninstall CUBA plugin
  • Click to the :gear: icon and select Manage Plugin Repositories.
  • Remove “beta” repository from the list
  • Install CUBA plugin again, it will come from the stable plugins channel.

As always, we are looking forward to your feedback!


I’m using 2020.3 beta.

Is that why the Cuba plugin doesn’t show up in the list?

We haven’t yet published release compatible with IDEA 2020.3.

Hi @AlexBudarov,

Do you have a plan when can we support 2020.3?


Yes, of course we plan it, just before or soon after release.

Sorry for not caring about early EAP adopters, but our priority are main stream users who upgrade to new version of IDEA after is has been released, not before.

Just for everyone to understand, CUBA plugin has big and complicated code base using lots of IntelliJ features, and for three times per year we spend significant efforts to adopt our code to quickly evolving IntelliJ API.
Supporting new IDEA release isn’t just changing few numbers in the build script.

I’m surprised some people expect us to adopt beforehand for unreleased product with unfinished API.

OK, I see, 2020.3’s been released on official site.
We will release compatible plugin in a few days, I will let know in this topic.

We recommend users to postpone updating their IDEA installation until compatible CUBA plugin version is released.

Thanks Alex for the explanation!

Yes, there is already some users from China installed new version and found CUBA plugin not work.

I believe our strategy to support released IDEA product is correct and I’m not expecting early available support.

Will forward the same to China community.
