Re: Location vmoptions-file

I am not 100% sure that you can. Why would you want to, what is the use case for that?

some users has no rights to edit the file at the original location.

Re: Location vmoptions-file

You may need to discuss that with whomever has set up your test machine then, if you have restricted access to that machine. An administrator should be able to give you the necessary access to that file, or if they cannot/will not, make the appropriate edits for you.

Re: Location vmoptions-file

Good Morning,

Our security prohibits write access for users to c: / programs. There are too many users to manually change the settings for all. That's why I'm looking for a different solution. Every user has a home directory in the local network.  I want to place the file there.

Re: Location vmoptions-file

As far as I am aware, you will not be able to change the location of the vmoptions file. But, after digging a little bit, you may not need to. In that same folder should be a file called "ready-api.bat" that you should be able to copy out to a different folder. This file lets you do the same customizations as the vmoptions file, but will launch ReadyAPI with those settins versus the vmoptions file. It's a little more hands on and a little bit different, but that should work.

 

Alternatively, you could open a feature request for a way to move the vmoptions file.

Re: Location vmoptions-file

Hi all,

 

Great suggestions, @msiadak!

 

@strichcode, did any recommendation above help you? If so, could you please mark the topic as Solved so that other users could find the answer faster?

 

Or, if you've made a decision to submit a feature request, please share the link to it here - other Community members could also vote for its implementation.

We are looking forward to hearing from you.
