Before you begin

Before you start the actual installation process, follow the steps in the next section on planning the installation.

1: Plan the installation and deployment

There are several factors to consider in the planning process. An installation for a trial evaluation can differ greatly from a departmental or enterprise-wide deployment. The first step is to verify that your hardware and software meet the minimum requirements. Verify that your database is supported and review the licensing model. After that, review the various deployment topologies and installation examples that are described in the documentation.

2: Install the Jazz Team Server and associated applications

For an evaluation, you can install the Jazz Team Server and the three associated applications on a single computer. In an enterprise environment, it is more likely that you will distribute the server and applications across multiple computers. However, it is important to realize that to take advantage of the product integrations, the three applications must share the same Jazz Team Server. It is also important to note that the Quality Management application requires Change and Configuration Management for defect tracking and Requirements Management for requirement tracking.

You can use the Interactive installation guide to create a customized guide for your particular environment.

3: Set up the database

By default, the installation process sets up an Apache Derby database that can be used by a small team. If your team uses Db2®, Oracle, or SQL Server, you will need to install and configure the database. For installation instructions, review the materials provided by your database vender. For configuration information, review the topics listed below.

4: Deploy and start the server

After you finish the installation and set up the database, you can deploy and start the Jazz Team Server. You can use either the WebSphere Application Server or the WebSphere Application Server, Liberty Profile.

Supporting tasks:


By completing this task, you have installed the server and associated applications. You have also set up your database and deployed the server.

What to do next

After you deploy and start the server, you must configure the environment. To do this, you must run the server setup wizard. In this wizard, you will complete the database configuration, configure the data warehouse, enable email notification, set up the user registry, and register the applications.

If you plan to use IBM Engineering Workflow Management, you can install the client, the Connectors, the Build System Toolkit, and the Build Agent.
