Repository directory for bloomreach - where to find?

When I run bloomreach in local and I see repository created under ${bre.home}/storage/repository with folders “meta”,“namespaces”,“nodetypes”,“privileges”. Where is the path set for the repository in the configuration?

I am trying to do a db migration following “” where one of the steps asks to copy the repository directory. I am not able to locate it in my qa env, where I deployed the cms distribution on tomcat with oracle as db. Looking for help on where to find this repository directory.

If you don’t specify anything (which is not OK) it is created in webapps/cms/WEB-INF/storage folder.
Best practice is to modify your startup scripts and point to a folder outside of tomcat folders, this is provided as java system property -Drepo.path=/some/path
