The worker job directory is used to store temporary files when the compilations are running on the InTime worker machines.


The default directory is found in the <project directory>/ This directory cannot be changed.

Private Cloud

The default directory is /home/<username>/plunify/worker_jobs for Linux and C:\Users\<username>\plunify\worker_jobs for Windows. The size of the directory will increase depending on the scale of the project files. Some IT policies may limit the disk space for the user’s home directory.
