29.1.4 Using an alias in a DVT Generic Run Configuration

Aliases only work in interactive shells. The command specified in the Run Configuration should be:

<your_shell> -ic "<your_alias>"

for example

bash -ic "ll"

When you create a new DVT Generic Run Configuration, DVT tries to guess the shell that you use from the $SHELL system variable and fills it in for you.
