Configuring the temporary storage location used by the agents

By default, project files are stored in the temporary folder for the username who is running the HCL OneTest™ API Agent. In a few scenarios, however, the temporary folders might get cleaned up by automated processes, for example, when a stub stops running. To avoid losing data, you can change the default setting.
