Some component properties like FileWrite or SlackFilesUpload are making references to folders and file paths. On this page, we describe how files can be referenced in Gravio.

The Default Folder

All paths referenced on Gravio refer to the below paths on the respective operating systems:

Windows: C:\ProgramData\HubKit\action\actmgr\data\
Mac: /Library/Application Support/HubKit/action/scripts/actmgr/data/
Linux: /var/opt/hubkit/action/scripts/actmgr/data/

Therefore you have 3 ways of making references to files:

1. Direct Reference

Mac and Linux:

File path Description
sample.txt Sample.txt in the actmgr/data/ folder.
./sample.txt Refers to sample.txt in the actmgr/data/ folder.

Windows:

File path Description
sample.txt Refers to sample.txt in the actmgr\data\ folder.
.\\sample.txt Refers to sample.txt in the actmgr\data\ folder.

2. Relative References

Mac and Linux:

File path Description
../../../../gravio/sample.txt Refers to gravio/sample.txt 4 levels up from the actmgr/data/ folder.

Windows:

File path Description
..\\..\\..\\..\\gravio\\sample.txt Refers to gravio\\sample.txt, which is four levels up from the actmgr\data\ folder.

3. Absolute References

Mac and Linux:

File path Description
/home/gravio/sample.txt Refers to /home/gravio/sample.txt under the root.

Windows:

File path Description
c:\\temp\\sample.txt Refers to c:\temp\gravio\sample.txt under c: drive.

In the example, it is assumed that the sample.txt file is readable by the user under which Gravio is operated.
