Directory

Description

A directory is a file system-based folder that contains a specific type of content for the portal. The physicalPath property of a directory locates the actual path of the folder on the file system. Beginning at 10.2.1, Portal for ArcGIS supports local directories and network shares as valid locations.

During the Portal for ArcGIS installation, the setup program asks you for the root portal directory (that will contain all the portal's sub directories). However, you can change each registered directory through this API.
