This article describes how to create a directory structure under an existing Harvest Repository using the Check in Process.


Following is a directory structure shown in Window explorer. We want to create the same directory structure under a Harvest repository.


  1. Create a dummy file (abc.txt) and save it in the last folder ("java").
  2. Set Default project Context to context desired.

  3. The View Path is set to "\test" in this example because harvest will be creating the directory structure under this repository.
  4. The Client Path is set to "D:\Client files". Harvest will check in the file and create the same directory structure in the repository.
  5. Run a check in Process as shown below and select "Use Context Client Path" and "Use Context View Path" check box.
  6. Click on file chooser icon in Check in window.
  7. Select "Include subfolders" option in Find File window. Click Find. Harvest will return abc.txt in File list. Click ok. Now the check in window should like this:-

  8. Make sure that "Preserve and Create Path Structure" option is selected.
  9. Click OK.
  10. This will create same directory structure under Harvest Repository. The dummy file can be deleted once the directory structure is created.
