Repository tools command to apply a patch fix to all ELM applications on the server
Use the patchApplyGlobal command to apply a patch fix to all IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) applications on the server.
Before you begin
The patchApplyGlobal command applies a patch fix to all ELM applications on the server. All product fixes for the ELM applications are included in a single patch archive file. The new patch fix replaces any previous patch fixes that were applied to the server.
You can use this command whether the server is running or not. If the server is running, you must restart it to apply the patch fix. You do not need to reset the ELM applications to clear the cache before you restart the server.
|file||Path and file name of the patch archive file||Yes||Not applicable|
This example shows how to apply a patch fix to the server:
Open a command prompt and enter this command:
repotools-jts.bat -patchApplyGlobal file=C:\tmp\patch_file.zip
Open a command line and enter this command:
repotools-jts.sh -patchApplyGlobal file=/tmp/patch_file.zip
- On WebSphere® Application Server:
- WebSphere Application Server installation directory.
- WebSphere Application Server profile name.
- Application context. For example:
Application context Description jts Jazz Team Server ccm Change and Configuration Management qm Quality Management rm Requirements Management
If the log file contains messages that are related to permissions problems on the /patch folder or the patch.properties file, change the permissions on these items to allow write access to the owner of the server process. Then, restart the server.
