Repository tools command to register an application

Use the RegisterApp command to register an application with Jazz™ Team Server.

Purpose

The registerApp command is used to register and configure multiple applications with a configured Jazz Team Server. Before using the command, create a properties file that contains the settings for the applications to be registered.
Important: The server must be running when you run the command.

.properties sample files

The following samples are for .properties files that can contain the information needed to register the IBM® Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) applications with Jazz Team Server. You can save these app.properties file to your local drive and then reference them in the command argument.

Note: The sample .properties files in this topic use a Db2® database with JDBC connection. If you are using a database other than Db2, change db.vendor and db.jdbc.location accordingly. Replace app with the application being used.

Additional databases information:

  • Derby:

    app\:configure.database.page\:db.vendor=DB2Z
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.jdbc.location=//ipAddress:ipPort/location:user\=ccmDBuser;password\={password};
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.schemaPrefix=DB2z schema prefix - must be unique for each database in the same DB2z subsystem
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.db2.dsn.dbname=JAZZDB
    app\:data.warehouse.page\:db.db2.dsn.dbname=RIDW
    app\:data.warehouse.page\:db.schemaPrefix=xx
    app\:data.warehouse.page\:report.user=RTPUSER
  • Db2 i:
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.vendor=DB2i
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.jdbc.location=//hostname;hold statements\=true;metadatasource\=1;user\=ccmDBuser;password\={password};
    app\:data.warehouse.page\:report.user=RTPUSER
  • J2EE:
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.type=J2EE
    app\:configure.database.page\:db.j2ee.dataSource=

Do not enter passwords in {password}. Use the configure.database.page\:db.jdbc.password line to enter passwords.

Also note that for JDBC connections, all applications use db.jdbc.location and db.jdbc.password except for Lifecycle Query Engine and Link Index Provider. For these two applications you must use db.location and db.password.

Troubleshooting an unsuccessful application registration

If your application registration fails during the process due to some misconfiguration and you cannot continue, you must unregister it. Complete the following steps to recover from a failed application registration:
Warning: Unregistering an application will cause data previously stored by the application in Jazz Team Server to be permanently lost. This should only be done to retry a failed setup for a new application. Re-registering an application with data in the repository that was previously removed is not supported.
  1. In the Server Administration of Jazz Team Server, click Server > Registered Applications.
  2. Click the X icon under the Actions column to remove the application. Click OK to confirm.
  3. Under Communication, click Consumers (Inbound) and make sure there is no consumer key for the application.
  4. If you are running IBM WebSphere® Application Server, stop the server.
  5. Go to JazzInstallDir/server/conf/app/derby and delete the repositoryDB folder.
  6. In the derby folder, extract repositoryDB.zip. Make sure the directory structure is derby/repositoryDB.
  7. In JazzInstallDir/server/conf/app delete the teamserver.properties file.
  8. Find the original teamserver-xxxxxxxxxxxxxbackup.properties and rename it to teamserver.properties. There are multiple backup files. The original copy is the oldest one with the largest file size.
  9. Start the server and redo the registration.
