DataStage® Release: 11x
Job Type: Parallel
OS: Unix
I am trying to create an Extension Mapping Document in IGC.

When I get to the Parent Folder prompt, the only available folder on the drop-down list is "root".

How do I create a folder structure? The Knowledge Center articles all recommend organizing Extension Mapping Documents into folders, but provide no information on how to create these folders.

Thank you for your time.

You can add folders but the top parent will always be "Root".

In the releases that support it, there is directly a "create subfolder" option. I don't know when we added it...it was a long time ago.

Alas I don't currently have access to an 11.7 system. However, in 11.5, what U describes seems to be the case - there is only the root folder and there is no Create Subfolder option. (This is within ...

Have had some discussions outside DSXchange on this. If you actually open the root folder that's where you find the ability to create sub-folders.
