Issue/Introduction

The default value for %TEMP% is C:\Users\<userid>\AppData\Local\Temp.
It might happen that due to security standards users are not allowed to change this variable.
How can we tell iXp to place it somewhere else without modifying %TEMP% environmental variable.

Environment

Windows

Resolution

You can make usage of following variable IXP_TEMP_DIR.
  1. open a command prompt (Start -> cmd.exe)
  2. set IXP_TEMP_DIR=C:\Temp
  3. javaws http://<hostname>:<port>/ixp/iXp.jnlp 
  4. login into iXp
  5. select 'Report' -> 'Process Report' -> 'DailyErrors'
  6. Look at URL in browser window and note that its using IXP_TEMP_DIR path now. Example: file:///C:/Temp/ixp_1523435330.html
You can also set IXP_TEMP_DIR as a Windows system environment variable in Windows System Properties.
