You can extend access to other parts of the Orchestrator server file system by modifying the js-io-rights.conf Orchestrator configuration file. If the js-io-rights.conf file does not exist on your Windows system, you can create it manually with the default content.
About this task
You can create the js-io-rights.conf file only on Windows systems. The recommended way to generate the js-io-rights.conf file is to run a workflow that attempts to access the Orchestrator server file system. For information about creating the js-io-rights.conf file in the Orchestrator Appliance, see Create and Locate the js-io-rights.conf File on the Orchestrator Appliance.
