32.3 User and Common Settings Location

  • User level settings

    • Location is set by default in $HOME/.dvt/settings when DVT is started using dvt.sh or dvt_cli.sh scripts on Linux. On Windows and MacOS the user location is not defined and the engine for settings management is disabled.

    • To set or change the location of user level settings the $DVT_USER_SETTINGS variable must be set in the environment before DVT is started.

  • Common level settings

    • Location is not defined by default.

    • To set or change the location for common level settings, the $DVT_COMMON_SETTINGS variable must be set in the environment before DVT is started.

    • If multiple common levels are needed then the variable can contain multiple paths separated using the OS's path separator. In this case the last directory will have the higher precedence.
