Configuring Rational Team Concert as your build provider

You can set up communication between the Quality Management application and the Change and Configuration Management application so that you can use the Change and Configuration Management application as your build provider and synchronize build information with the Quality Management application. After you set up this communication, users can track builds in the Quality Management application user interface, even though the build information is maintained in the Change and Configuration Management application.

Before you begin

The Rational® solution for Collaborative Lifecycle Management integration must be configured before you can set up communication between the Quality Management application and the Change and Configuration Management application.

Also, verify that pop ups are enabled in your browser.

Procedure

To set up build integration with the Change and Configuration Management application:

  1. Set up a Change and Configuration Management server as a friend of the Quality Management server. For details, see Establishing friend relationships.
  2. Set up the Quality Management application so that it can communicate with the Change and Configuration Management application.
    1. On the Jazz™ Team Server Home page, under Application Administration , go to the Quality Management (/qm) section and click Application .
    2. Under Configuration on the left, click Advanced Properties.
    3. Under Build Integration Framework, go to the com.ibm.rqm.buildintegration.service.asynctask.RTCBuildInformationCollector component, and click Edit. Modify the properties as required.
      • Under Current Value, type the correct user name and password for the Change and Configuration Management Jazz Server administrator. The user must either be a member of the CCM project that you are integrating with for builds, or have the JazzAdmin repository role.
      • Update the Delay value or accept the default setting.

        The Delay value determines how frequently the Quality Management server synchronizes with the Change and Configuration Management server. The default setting is 500 seconds. If you want to see changes more frequently, decrease the delay. If this produces too great a load on the Quality Management server, you can increase the delay.

    4. Under Integration Provider, click Edit, go to the com.ibm.rqm.integrationprovider.service.rest.internal.ConnectionRestService component, and modify the properties as required. Under Current Value, type the correct user name and password for the Change and Configuration Management Jazz Server user. The user must either be a member of the CCM project that you are integrating with for builds, or have the JazzAdmin repository role.
    5. At the top of the page, click Save.
  3. Set up the link between the Change and Configuration Management project area and the Quality Management project area. After you set up this link, the build information that is created in Change and Configuration Management will be stored in the corresponding Quality Management project area.
    1. In the Quality Management project, click the Admin (Administration) icon in the top, right portion of the banner, and select Manage Project Properties.
    2. Under Properties, click Build Provider.
    3. For the Provider, select RTC Integration Provider.
    4. Click Configure.

      A wizard starts for setting up Change and Configuration Management as the build provider.

    5. Click Next.
    6. On the next wizard page, select the Change and Configuration Management project area for the builds. Select the project area for which the builds will be created.
    7. Click Finish.

      After you complete the wizard, the Builds Provider page is updated to show a successful status and summary.

Results

After you complete these steps, users can track builds that are created in Change and Configuration Management.
