Resettable, single-valued

Allowed Values

You can enter the name of a resource-context object or a text string up to 4095 characters long that defines the directory path to page segments. You can specify one or more paths for one resource context. You can specify paths for file systems mounted to AIX or Linux, such as MVS data sets and VM minidisks.


path:path for AIX
path:path for Linux
path;path for Windows

Separate path names with colons on AIX or Linux, for example:


Separate path names with semicolons on Windows, for example:


Default Value

With AIX or Linux, no default values, but InfoPrint always searches /usr/lpp/psf/reslib.

With Windows, no default values, but InfoPrint always searches install_path\reslib.

Usage Guidelines

  • Page segments are identified in the document. If the document refers to a page segment that is located external to the document, its location must be specified in at least one of the components of the search path as described below.
  • InfoPrint searches paths in this order:
    1. resource-context-user document attribute
    2. resource-context-page-segment document attribute
    3. resource-context document attribute
    4. PSFPATH environment variable
    5. resource-context-page-segment actual destination attribute
    6. For AIX or Linux, /usr/lpp/psf/reslib
    7. For Windows, install_path\reslib
  • If InfoPrint cannot find the resource because none of the paths contain the resource, it still processes the job and prints error messages at the end of the job. InfoPrint reports the job as completed.
  • InfoPrint Manager uses the directory paths for a page segment for the job specified with resource-context-page-segment at print time; they are not searched by ACIF or the line2afp transform during processing. When you need to have ACIF or the line2afp transform search the directory paths for a page segment for the job, use the resource-context-page-segment document/default document attribute.
