How to change the repository settings


The TimeXtender repository database settings are stored individually for each user account. Sometimes, e.g. when setting up a new account for the scheduler service, you'll have to change the repository the account uses.

Step by step

You can change the repository settings for a user in two ways. It probably easiest to use TimeXtender , but in some cases, e.g. when you can't log in with the user account in question, the second option is useful.

Using TimeXtender

  1. Log in as the account you would like to change the settings for.
  2. Open TimeXtender.
  3. Go to Tools -> Options -> Project repository tab
  4. Adjust your repository settings and click OK.

Editing the configuration file

The repository information is stored in a configuration file. This file can be edited to reflect the correct repository settings.

  1. Browse to C:\Users\userName\AppData\Roaming\TimeXtender\TimeXtender\version number\ for an account with the correct repository settings.
  2. Open Config.xml and note the settings in the ProjectConnectionString element.
  3. Browse to the same folder for the account you wish to change the settings for.
  4. Open Config.xml and change the repository connection info in the ProjectConnectionString element to match the settings found in step 2.

Instead of editing the configuration file, you can copy the file in step 2 and paste it in step 4. This will, however, overwrite all settings for the second account.

Please note that you must "show hidden folders" to see the AppData folder.
