Adding or Editing Search Paths

In order to be able to work with a file in SchemaAgent Client, it must be contained in one of the search paths that are displayed in the Hierarchical and Flat tabs of the Explorer window. You cannot open files from outside SchemaAgent Client or drag them into the Design window.

 

Note:The procedure described below applies to the Configure Paths tab in both the Explorer window in SchemaAgent Client and the Environment window in SchemaAgent Server. The type of your SchemaAgent installation and the server you are connected to, respectively, determines in which window the Configure Paths tab is displayed.

 

Relative paths

In SchemaAgent, you can define to display search paths relative to location the configuration file. This allows you to have shorter search path, if you folder structure is very extensive. Please note, that with SchemaAgent LocalServer each user has a separate configuration file in \(My) Documents\Altova\SchemaAgent LocalServer2019.
