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.


  1. Log in as an administrator to the machine on which the Orchestrator server is installed.
  2. Navigate to the Orchestrator configuration directory, located at install_directory\VMware\Orchestrator\app-server\conf.
  3. Create the js-io-rights.conf file and open it in a text editor.
  4. Type the default contents of the js-io-rights.conf file.
    -rwx C:/
    +rwx C:/orchestrator
    # relative to user.dir which is %orchestrator_install_dir%\app-server\bin
    +rx ../../app-server/logs/ 
    +rx ../../configuration/logs/ 
    +rx ../bin/
    -rwx ../../app-server/conf/security/ 
    +rx ../../app-server/conf/ 
    +rx ../../apps/ 
    +r ../../version.txt
  5. Save and close the file.


You can now set the access to the server file system for workflows and JavaScript.
