versions of the server stored workbook files in the Workbooks
of the application data directory (i.e., c:\vizserverdata\Workbooks), and older versions of those workbooks in the
(i.e., c:\vizserverdata\Archive). Starting with the 2020.0 release, workbooks are
now stored in a version tracking repository, located in the
repository also stores other types of content that was previously
stored in separate subdirectories of the application data directory,
such as data files and bookmarks.
new workbook repository tracks changes to content, folders, and permissions.
It also makes it possible for multiple servers to synchronize their
repositories, so you only have to make changes to a workbook on one
node in a server cluster, and it will automatically propagate to the
other servers [see section on cluster configuration].
first time you start the 2020.0 server, it will initialize an empty
repository in the application data directory. If you are upgrading
an existing install you have the option of migrating content from
the old application data directory into the new repository [see section
For the list of properties that
control the repository behavior, refer to those starting with ‘repository.’
