  4. Click the "copy" link, open a new browser window and paste the link
  5. Log into JetBrains with your valid JetBrains credentials to get an IDE authentication token
  6. Click "Copy token" to copy your IDE authentication token
  7. Paste the token back into your JetBrains IDE window
  8. Start using JetBrains
