Repository tools command to verify the integrity of a database

Use the verify command to verify the integrity of a database.


The verify command is used for contents verification in the database with verification levels set between number one and ten. Level ten is the maximum verification level. When the level is set to ten, it looks for the particular content of the component in all database tables and verifies their validity. Level one is the minimum verification level. Level one for example, verifies if the item can be fetched by simple fetch call at a very top level. Each component uses these levels with different verbose checks, but usually level five should be the base to start with, if verification is needed. If some components show major problems, then you can start with a higher level to get more verbose output. For information about the verify command error messages, see the Repotools Verify command - additional guidance document in the Deployment wiki.
Important: You must shut down the server before you run the command.


Attribute Description Required Default The file system path to the file. No conf/application/

The following example is for Jazz™ Team Server. To use this command for other applications, run these options from the server directory:
  • IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (Change and Configuration Management application): repotools-ccm
  • IBM Engineering Requirements Management DOORS® Next (Requirements Management application): repotools-rm
  • IBM Engineering Test Management (Quality Management application): repotools-qm
  • Global Configuration Management: repotools-gc
  • Data Collection Component: repotools-dcc
  • IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights: repotools-relm

For Windows operating system Open a command prompt and enter this command:

cd C:\Program Files\IBM\JazzTeamServer\server\
repotools-jts.bat -verify\jts\ level=5

For Unix operating systems Open a command line and enter this command:
