Managing a MongoDB deployment? Take a load off and live migrate to MongoDB Atlas, the official automated service, with little to no downtime.

If you want to add a particular file, which will be visible in projects tab, to the 'ignore list' of Subversion in NetBeans, the process is very simple.


  • Right click on the file
  • Go to Subversion > Ignore


If you want to add a particular file that is not visible in projects tab to the ignore list, like bin folder, build.xml etc., that's a little more tricky.

  • Go to the Files tab
  • Right click on the file / folder
  • Go to Subversion > Ignore


The really tricky part is to add a file or folder that is not visible in the projects tab or files tab to the ignore list, like the .settings folder etc. For this, you have to...

  • Right click on the project
  • Go to Subversion > Svn Properties



  • Once you're there, double click on property svn:ignore in the Subversion Properties list.



  • Add .settings to the list and click on Update and then Close.


That is all you have to do.

MongoDB Atlas is the easiest way to run the fastest-growing database for modern applications — no installation, setup, or configuration required. Easily live migrate an existing workload or start with 512MB of storage for free.
