From last few days I was wondering why this internal variable (Internal.Job.Filename.Directory) is always empty in my development environment.

The documentation at says these variable will be always defined. But it was not in my case.

After lot of time spent debugging and breaking my head I found that these variables are set only if you do not use the repository. In my case I was using a file based repository which was causing this issue. By disconnecting the repository and importing the job directly solved the issue.

Now I am wondering are not we suppose to use these variables while using repository to define paths of sub-jobs or transformations?
