Before you begin
- Ensure that you are familiar with the concepts explained in Configuration management: Concepts and capabilities.
- You must have Jazz® Administrator privileges.
About this task
If your project does not have configuration management capabilities enabled, you can still create baselines of your project area at important project milestones, but you cannot include these baselines in global configurations.
To watch YouTube videos about configuration management, go to the Introduction to configuration management with IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management playlist on the Software Education channel.
Generate an activation key at https://jazz.net/products/clm/cm/get-key.
Note: The configuration management capabilities of the RM, QM, and Global Configuration Management applications are added services for IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Base SaaS and IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Extended SaaS customer environments and should only be enabled by the SaaS provider. The source-control management (SCM) feature in CCM is included in Cloud offerings at no additional cost.
- Activate configuration management in the RM and QM applications by using that key.
Enable configuration management in the
AM, RM, and QM project areas that require configurations.
You do not need to enable all AM, RM, and QM project areas. If your RM or QM project areas are linked to other RM or QM project areas, enable either all or none of the linked project areas for configuration management.
If your project will use global configurations and you are familiar with the Global
Configuration Management (GCM) application, see Overview of global configurations.
Global configurations provide a view of all the artifacts that are contained in a set of related local configurations, and are managed by the Global Configuration Management application. To learn more about global configurations, see this overview.
