Now let's see how we can benefit from using the TeamCity plugin installed in our integrated development environment.
Take notice of the new TeamCity tool window that appeared in IDEA's bottom-left corner. In the bottom-right corner of the IDEA status bar, you may find a new TeamCity status icon—a light-blue colored circle with two red dots on it. This particular icon means that IDEA is not currently connected to the TeamCity server. It's time to establish a connection.
