ReadyAPI Folders Reference

Applies to ReadyAPI 3.49, last modified on December 11, 2023

When you install ReadyAPI, it places the files into several locations on your machine. This topic explains where you can find them.

Default installation folder

C:\Program Files\SmartBear\ReadyAPI-<version>
<User Folder>/SmartBear/ReadyAPI-<version>

Folder for Java extension libraries

You place Java extension libraries, for example those used to connect to JDBC databases, in the <ReadyAPI folder>\bin\ext folder.

The .vmoptions file


To edit the vmoptions file:

  1. Control-click ReadyAPI in Finder.

  2. Select Show Package Contents.

  3. Open the vmoptions.txt file.

Setting file

ReadyAPI stores its configuration settings in the <User Folder>/.readyapi/readyapi‑settings.xml file.

Default workspace file

The default workspace is created when you install ReadyAPI. It is stored in the <User Folder>/default-soapui-workspace.xml file. Workspaces created manually can be stored in any folder.

Plugin folder

Plugin files are stored in the <User Folder>/.soapui/plugins folder.

Log folder

ReadyAPI stores log files in the <User Folder>/.readyapi/logs folder.

Databases for test results

When you run tests, ReadyAPI gathers logs. To make sure the project file does not grow with each test run, we store the results in individual database files:

  • The <username>/.readyapi/db/readyapi.h2.db file contains information about the test runs that you can access from the History and Transaction Log tabs.

  • The <username>/.readyapi/db/dashboard.h2.db file contains information that is displayed on the dashboard.

  • The .readyapi/loadui/results folder holds the information displayed on the ReadyAPI Performance Statistics page.
