Getting started with Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights 7.0.3

About the download: The Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) all-in-one installer includes the option to deploy the following:

  • Jazz Team Server (JTS)
  • Engineering Requirements Management DOORS Next also known as Requirements Management (RM)
  • Rhapsody Model Manager (RMM, a set of plugins for EWM) also known as Architecture Management (AM)
  • Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) also known as Change and Configuration Management (CCM)
  • Engineering Test Management (ETM) also known as Quality Management (QM)
  • Jazz Reporting Service (JRS)
  • Engineering Insights (ENI)

Trial license keys for IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management products unlock access to capabilities provided by the applications. While you can perform most tasks with a web browser, the all-in-one installer also includes options to install client tools that support advanced tasks and optimized workflows for specific roles or jobs, or tools that provide additional functions such as integrations with other systems.

You can now install IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Publishing Document Builder (PUB DB) from the IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) installation launchpad. PUB DB is installed into a separate package group from the ELM applications into its own installation folder with its own Liberty runtime.

Plan and prepare

For supported platforms and requirements, see the system requirements.

For known issues, workarounds and limitations in this release, see the release notes.

Install the Jazz Team Server and applications

To perform a web installation of the server, download the web installer for your platform (see the previous section), extract the .zip file, and start the launchpad (launchpad.bat or, depending on your platform). We recommend installing IBM Db2 or Oracle as your database. The server includes Apache Derby, a file-based database, for test installations of a subset of ELM applications up to 10 users and not using configuration management in DOORS Next or Quality Management.

If you want to install the server in an environment without Internet access, visit the All Downloads page, download a repository for the server and trial licenses, and install by using IBM Installation Manager.

Note: During the installation process, you have the option to install different applications. You do not have to install all of them. Install only the applications that you require. IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights requires the following Jazz Reporting Service applications: Report Builder, Lifecycle Query Engine. Ensure that you install and configure these applications.
