What’s New in JetBrains Academy for Organizations

Last summer we introduced JetBrains Academy for Organizations. This platform can give your team hands-on learning experience in programming that they can then apply in their daily work or studies. Your team members can learn a programming language from scratch, improve their existing skills, or close certain skill gaps.

While keeping your team empowered with an up-to-date skillset is important, we also focused on improving the platform administrative functionality. Now you can manage your team and see how effectively your team members are learning from one place. In particular, you’ll be able to:


With a new dedicated Organization page, you can now manage your team members’ accounts effortlessly and understand how effectively your team is learning at glance. You can access this page via the Manage organization button on the Subscription page or via the Organization button on the top navigation bar. Let’s take a closer look at what you can do there.

Add new members to your team and remove existing ones

To add new members to your team, copy the invitation link in the upper-right corner and send it to them. If there are not enough seats in your subscription, you will need to buy additional seats using your JetBrains Account or you can remove existing users.


To remove existing team members, click the Deactivate button next to the users in question and confirm the action.

Connect your corporate domain with the single sign-on

We’ve already made it easy for teams that used corporate Google accounts to log in to JetBrains Academy for Organizations. But now we’ve gone further and expanded the single sign-on functionality to include your corporate domain. You can specify this by clicking Edit in your organization profile. In the pop up window, type in your corporate domain name and save the changes. From that point on, your team members will be able to automatically join the platform using their work email addresses. Alternatively, you can always add new team members by sending them an invitation link by following aforementioned instructions.


See your team’s progress on the overview dashboards

Overview dashboards help you keep track of each learner’s progress and review their metrics so you can understand how effectively your team is learning. You will now find 3 dashboards on the Organization page: Members and their subscription status, Members’ activity, and Total statistics. Let’s take a closer look at each one.

Members and their subscription status shows all past and present members of your organization. There, you can see each member’s username, email address, join date, and the status of their subscription.

Each team member can have one of the three statuses: Active, Pending, or Inactive, with the following meanings:

  • Active: The user has been verified and has full access to the platform.

  • Pending: The user hasn’t been verified and doesn’t have access to the platform. This may happen because the user hasn’t confirmed their email or there are no more seats available in your subscription. 

  • Inactive: The user has been removed from your organization or deleted their account.


Members’ activity shows the number of problems, topics, projects, and tracks each member has completed. You can also see when each member was most recently active on JetBrains Academy. 

Total statistics shows the overall number of problems, topics, projects, and tracks completed by your team members.

We know how important the onboarding process is to everyone — whether you’re setting up a new platform, administering the learning process, or actually studying. We hope that the new functionality will provide a smooth process for you and your team! Learn more about how you can start with JetBrains Academy for Organizations in our Help Center guide.

What’s new for learners?

We’re continuously improving our platform and adding new learning content and functionality for JetBrains Academy learners. Since last summer, we’ve introduced a new programming language (Go) and launched new subjects to study (math and machine learning). We’ve also released several new and more specialized tracks that can help your team develop a new skill, like shell scripting, keep up with language technologies, like Django or Flask frameworks, or elevate their knowledge in specific areas of development, like backend or desktop applications. See the entire list of tracks on the Tracks page.


To keep your team motivated throughout the learning process, we released certificates of completion. Now whenever one of your team members completes their track, they’ll receive a personalized certificate, which is the perfect way to showcase the skills they’ve gained. It quickly became one of the most beloved platform features for our learners, so we are sure your team will like it!

Toolbox App 1.24 Adds a New “Services” Tab


TL;DR: We’ve introduced a new Services tab, which contains the JetBrains team tools, added a new tool to your box – JetBrains Space, and released some performance improvements and bug fixes.



New Services Tab

We are introducing a new Services tab that contains the team tools or SaaS applications. It includes a new addition to the Toolbox App – JetBrains Space, an all-in-one solution for projects and teams, as well as Datalore, our online Jupyter notebook environment, which was moved from the Tools tab. We plan to add other JetBrains team tools in the future, such as YouTrack and TeamCity. Stay tuned!


JetBrains Space

What’s JetBrains Space?

A unified platform that covers the entire software development pipeline, from hosting Git repositories, automating CI/CD, publishing packages, and orchestrating cloud development environments, to managing issues, sharing documents, and communicating in chats – all in one place. Learn more.

JetBrains Space integration in the Toolbox App

After connecting your Space account, your favorite Space projects will be listed in the Toolbox App. You can then easily open them in your IDE of choice.


How it works

To start working with JetBrains Space, you first need to sign in to your existing Space account by entering your organization URL, e.g. [company] If you don’t have a Space organization, you’ll need to create one.

You’ll be prompted to grant the necessary permissions to the app in the browser. Back on the Services tab, you’ll see the newly connected account. Clicking on it opens your company Space page in the browser.

Note that you can sign in to multiple Space organizations if you use more than one Space instance. Click the “Sign in to another Space instance…” in the Space account context menu and enter another organizational URL. As soon as the permissions are granted, the new Space instance will appear on the Services tab. You may add as many Space instances as you need.

Space Projects

After you connect your Space account, the Toolbox App displays your favorite Space projects on the Projects tab, right after your local ones. You can easily clone any of the Space projects in an IDE of your choice using the Clone button. The local projects cloned from Space are marked by a little Space logo.


What’s Datalore?

Datalore is a powerful online environment for Jupyter notebooks released by JetBrains a year ago. Learn more.

Datalore in the Toolbox App

The tool has moved from the Tools tab to the new Services tab. Here you can open it to add it to your list of tools. It will always be right there at your fingertips for easy access.

If you need immediate help opening the documentation, or if you need to contact the support team, the useful links are stored in the About page in the Datalore context menu.

JetBrains AppCode end of sales and support

As of Dec 14, 2022, JetBrains will no longer sell new licenses or renewals for AppCode.

Up to December 31, 2023, JetBrains will continue to provide technical support and release updates that specifically address compatibility issues with Xcode 14, as well as critical security updates as necessary.

Please note that the scope of updates will be limited to the two aforementioned areas.

Normally when a fallback license is granted, the user receives a license to the version of the product that the user started their subscription with. But as a token of appreciation, JetBrains are doing it differently this time. Those who receive fallback licenses will get a license to the version that is currently available when their subscriptions end.

Overview of the 2022.3 Versions of All JetBrains IDEs and .NET Tools

All of our IDEs and .NET tools have rolled out their last updates for this year, and we hope the latest features and improvements will not only help you take your productivity a step higher but will also make your coding more fun!

Here’s an overview of the highlights of each update.

IntelliJ-based IDEs

First, let’s talk about a few big new features that are common to the 2022.3 versions of all our IDEs.

New UI

The completely reworked UI, which was announced earlier this year, is now available to all. After thorough testing, it has proved that it’s both functional and easier to work with for many of our users. Update your favorite IDE and try out the new UI by going to Settings/Preferences | Appearance & Behavior | New UI Preview. We hope you’ll love it!

Settings Sync

Settings Sync is the new solution for synchronizing and backing up your custom user settings, such as shareable settings from the platform, bundled plugins, and third-party plugins. For more details about the new Settings Sync plugin and the migration process, see this guide.

Note that the Settings Sync plugin is not available in Rider.

WSL support in remote development

There is now an alternative way to work with projects running in WSL 2 file systems. Instead of running a full IDE on Windows, your IDE backend will launch directly in WSL 2 itself. You then simply connect to it the same way you would connect to any remote machine when using remote development in the IDE.

Redis support in databases

Long-awaited support for Redis is finally here. Get the full story in this blog post.

We recommend updating your JetBrains tools via the free Toolbox App. Download it from this page or simply click the button below:


Now, let’s go over the other notable features and improvements specific to each IDE.

WebStorm 2022.3 comes with Vitest support, an updated New Project wizard, type narrowing in Angular templates, Code Vision for JavaScript and TypeScript, and improvements for Vue.

IntelliJ IDEA 2022.3. In addition to the features highlighted above, IntelliJ IDEA 2022.3 comes with new actions for autowiring Spring beans and generating OpenAPI schemas. Check out all the details in this blog post.

PyCharm 2022.3 brings an improved experience for working with asynchronous code in the Python Console, as you can now use the await keyword outside of functions to call coroutines. The Python Packages tool window can now help you find, install, and delete packages from the Anaconda package library (in addition to PyPI). For pandas DataFrames, there are new options to hide columns, use pagination to quickly go through rows, and export DataFrames in various formats.

DataSpell 2022.3 makes data science simpler whether you work on remote or local machines. Execute projects on remote servers directly from your IDE by configuring a remote Python interpreter via SSH. Debug notebook cells on remote Jupyter servers. Automatically track changes to Jupyter notebooks with Local History, no version control required.

GoLand 2022.3 offers performance enhancements, as well as new features for generics and Go workspaces. We’ve integrated Go Playground and added support for improvements to Go doc comments. There are also new features for HTTP Client and Docker, and more.

Rider 2022.3 offers support for the .NET 7 SDK, including the latest features from C# 11. This version boasts significant performance improvements, with a particular focus on startup time and the ability to run Rider on WSL 2 through remote development. We’ve also introduced several big UX and UI changes. Last but not least, this release provides tighter integration with Unity and Unreal editors.

CLion 2022.3 provides a better user experience across the board, from projects with only a couple of C/C++ files to complex CMake-based applications. It also helps you adopt modern C++20 features and work in embedded and remote setups more productively.

DataGrip 2022.3 is here with long-awaited Redis support. Now you can connect to Redis Single Instance, explore key values in the data viewer, write and execute Redis queries, and more. We’ve also introduced a quick filter in the database explorer, pattern-based schema filtering, formats for datetime fields, and other features.

PhpStorm 2022.3 is a major update that includes PHP 8.2 support, Code Vision for PHP, quick-fix preview, support for ParaTest, rendered PHPDoc view, and much more.

AppCode 2022.3 is compatible with macOS 13 and Xcode 14.2. It brings more refactoring capabilities for Swift and enables language injections.

Note that we are announcing the end of AppCode sales and support with this release. Please read this blog post to learn more.

.NET tools and VS extensions

Both ReSharper and Rider have introduced basic support for the latest C# 11 features, as well as vulnerable dependency detection for NuGet packages.

February 23, 2023:

Today’s update brings an exciting change to the EduTools plugin. It has a new name – the JetBrains Academy plugin! This change reflects our new vision for the educational products and initiatives at JetBrains. Rest assured, all of the features and functionality that you’ve come to rely on are still present and have been improved in this release.

For this update, we’ve focused primarily on improving the plugin’s overall functionality by fixing bugs. Additionally, we’ve implemented a new feature for the course creators that enables learners to view the full text in the Answer Placeholder window without any limitations.

To check out the improvements, install the JetBrains Academy plugin or update to the latest version from Settings/Preferences | Plugins in your JetBrains IDE.

Add an extended text block to the Answer Placeholder window

We’ve added a vertical scroll bar to the Answer Placeholder window, allowing users to see the full text without limitations. Answer Placeholder is a feature that shows students exactly where to write the code. As a course creator, the updated scroll bar allows you to provide more detailed feedback to the learners when creating code exercises.

To create a placeholder, simply select a code fragment you want learners to fill in, invoke the Add Answer Placeholder command from the context menu, and add the placeholder text.

If you want to learn more about the plugin’s features for course creators, check out our Course creator start guide or drop us an email at


Notable improvements and bug fixes:

  • EDU-5544: Python courses are now open in PyCharm as expected. The plugin automatically creates a virtual environment and installs Python dependencies without any issues.

  • EDU-5542: We’ve fixed the issue that was causing the appearance of an unexpected Trust and Open Project window when opening the AMazing course.

  • EDU-5524: The output tab in the Check details tool window has been renamed to Feedback.

  • EDU-5584: The time it takes to check code tasks on Hyperskill has been reduced.

  • EDU-5221: When unpacking archives with multiple SDK versions, the plugin will now use the same versions as in the creator’s project.


For the full list of issues addressed in the JetBrains Academy plugin 2023.2, see our issue tracker.
