    XMetal8 Repository Options – Automatically Change ucf.client.config.xml location

    Hello,

    On Test environment, we are using Documentum Webtop 6.7Sp2 and XMetal 8.

    We have one requirement for changing checkout folder location for the users using Xmetal8 (checkin/checkout/edit/view operations).

    So from Documentum Webtop's side, we changed the checkout folder location of the users from C:Users to D: drive. It works as expected while using Webtop. It also works using Xmetal8.

    But when user opens XMetal for checkout/checkin of the documents, under 'Repository options',they still see older location of ucf.client.config.xml which points to C: drive. At this time, every user need to change the ucf.client.config.xml location manually to point to D:UsersDocumentum drive.

    From Xmetal side, is there any way by which if we could globally change ucf.client.config.xml location for all users from C:Usersuser_idDocumentumucfmachine_namesharedconfigucf.client.config.xml to D:UsersDocumentum drive.

    OR may be during Xmetal 8 installation, can we set ucf.client.config.xml path to D: drive, so that I don't need to change the ucf.client.config.xml paths manually?

    Thank you

    Assuming you can get Webtop to place its ucf.client.config.xml in the location you want it to be in (that's a question for EMC) you can modify the following file to tell XMetaL Author Enterprise where to find it.

    C:Program FilesXMetaL 8.0AuthorCRCLconfigsdocumentum.xml

    You need to modify two things:

    1. Set the @value in this setting to the full path for ucf.client.config.xml

    2. Increase the value for the @ver at the top of the file. Example:

    #2 tells XMetaL Author Enterprise for Documentum Webtop (the Documentum adapter) that a new version of the config file is available and to use it instead of the one it is currently using. The one that it uses is stored in the software's per-user settings location in %appdata%SoftQuadXMetaL8.0CRCLconfigs
