Can "project-config.xml" Be Edited By Hand?


I have a value for "checkout-dir" in "vcs-settings" that I'd like to change.
      <vcs-settings checkout-mode="MANUAL" checkout-dir="foo\bar" labeling-type="NONE" labeling-pattern="build-%system.

The same value is used in multiple projects, but now needs to be changed to something else.   Is it possible to change all of the "project-config.xml" files using a batch editor like sed?  Will that cause any problems?

Yes, you can modify these files directly.

By the way, explicit checkout directories are intended for builds where file paths are hardcoded in build scripts and cannot be changed. In all other cases we recommend to leave this setting blank and let a build agent to choose this directory automatically.
