The location of the file system used for file assets is determined by the pathPrefix attribute of the content property for the fileAsset item descriptor in the publishingFileRepository. To change the location, create a publishingFiles.xml file with a new pathPrefix attribute that overrides the default, and put the file in your application’s configuration path.

For example:

   <item-descriptor name="fileAsset">
     <property name="content" xml-combine="append">
       <attribute name="pathPrefix"

The new location must be on the asset management server.

Note: The pathPrefix attribute value should be set with an environment variable, as shown in the previous example. Do not use an explicit file system path such as c:\atg\atg10.1\home.
