denodo installation folder location

we try to create a datasource to open denodo logfiles as a source within denodo, but not all denodo installations are in the same folders. Does denodo have any variable we can use in the configuration of this datasource to have the location of the installation folder? or a variable describing the folder having all logs? thank you

Hi, If you want to determine the location of the log files you want to read into your data source with the help of a variable, I’d advise you to create a [Delimited Data Source](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/creating_data_sources_and_base_views/delimited_file_sources/delimited_file_sources) and use a [Interpolation Variable](https://community.denodo.com/docs/html/browse/7.0/vdp/administration/creating_data_sources_and_base_views/path_types_in_virtual_dataport/path_types_in_virtual_dataport#paths-and-other-values-with-interpolation-variables) as a data route. Doing this you should be able to pass the filepath and filename of the logs you want to read as a variable in the WHERE clause of the query. Thus, you can read out the log files from different locations as desired. Another possibility would be to check out the [FileSystem Custom Wrapper](https://support.denodo.com/resources/denodo-connect/download/1736) on our support site in case you have access. Hope this helps!
