Unable to add RTC 3.0 My Projects dashboard viewlet in RRC

There is an integration issue between Rational Requirements Composer and Rational Team Concert 3.0. Any attempt to add a My Projects dashboard viewlet for an RTC 3.0 server in RRC will result in a "Loading..."" message that never goes away. This defect is being addressed in RRC and is tracked in the RRC work item 33952.

Internal system error when adding RTC 3.0 "My Work Item Changes" viewlet to RQM

Defect 139285 documents an integration issue between RTC 3.0 and RQM where adding the My Work Item Changes viewlet for an RTC 3.0 server to a dashboard in RQM when the RTC and RQM server are not configured to use single sign-on authentication. This defect will be addressed in a future maintenance release and is likely also an issue when the server hosting the dashboard is RRC or RQM (and single sign-on is not being used). The following workaround can be used to address this issue until the defect is fixed:

After adding the viewlet:

  • Open viewlet settings
  • Replace the ${server-URL} variable in the URL with the actual server URL of the CCM server. e.g.
  • Replace the ${current_user} variable at the end of the URL with your user id, e.g. "curtispd"
  • Save settings

Using this example, the the URL starts out as: ${server-URL}/service/${current_user} and is then modified to be

Adding an "Implemented by" in RRC may be very slow or may crash when the friends configuration is broken

If you attempt to add an Implemented by link to an RTC 3.0 server from an RRC server when the servers do not have friends relationships, the RRC Eclipse client may hang or taking an extremely long time to respond. This can only happen when the friends configuration was correct at one stage and the project areas were linked and the friends relationship was later removed. The RRC work item 34724 tracks the effort to improve the error handling in RRC to detect the broken system configuration.
