Generating Site Settings Files

The settings g installer command enables you to generate the site-specific settings files for all HotDocs Advance applications.

Each Advance application has a site settings JSON file containing all relevant configuration details for the application. These site-specific settings files are generated from the Installer configuration files.

If you ever require updated copies of these files (for example, if you update a setting in the installer configuration settings file), running the settings command will generate the files for you.

You can view the help information for the settings command using the HdaInstaller Help command.

To generate settings files

  1. Open the Windows Command Prompt.
  2. Navigate to the folder containing the Advance installer files.
  3. Navigate to the bin.
  4. Run the following command:
    HdaInstaller settings g

The site settings files are written to the SettingsTemp folder, inside the Advance installer files bin folder. For example, C:\Users\yourname\Downloads\HdaAdvance\bin\SettingsTemp.

To deploy the updated site settings to your Advance instance, you should upload the site settings files.

You can also use the HdaInstaller settings gu command to generate and upload the site settings files in one step.
