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.
