CLM 4.0.6: Friendship Relation necessary to enable Distributed SCM

Michael Patschull (111) | asked Mar 18 '14, 8:39 a.m.
In some posts on it is stated that a Friendship Relation between the two affected CCM applications is required to enable Distributed SCM. In the latest Documentation this is not mentioned in the chapter Enabling Distributed Delivery though. It is either missing in the documentation or realy no longer required.

So does anyone know if a friendship relation is required or not in Version 4.0.6?

Thanks a lot!

Kind regards,

the friends relationship was never necessary for distributed SCM. The only purpose of the friends relationship is to allow you to see the a work item that is linked to a change set and lives on the remote server.

The SCM part works perfectly without this relationship. Also see for more detailled discussions.

that conflicts with article 535, step 2b.

That might well be, but it is nevertheless the truth. That step is only done in that article, to be able to see and resolve/navigate to the remote work items related to the change sets.
The relationship is not needed for distributed SCM. It is needed only to support the remote work item link. without it, you can see a link,but don't have information about the remote work item, which might be useless any way, if there is usually not network connection as described in

maybe.. it doesn't say why you are do the friends config, only that it is the next step.
