Lesson 2.2: Create a project area

In this lesson, you will create a sample project area that you will use to synchronize work items with ClearQuest® records. You will also add the administrative user that you created previously as a member and administrator to the project area, and you will assign a role with appropriate permissions to that user.

About this task

To create a project area:


  1. In a Web browser, enter the URL for the administrative web user interface. For example: https://example.com:9443/ccm/admin.
  2. Login with the user name and password of the administrative user that you created in the previous lesson.
  3. Perform the following steps:
    1. Click Project Areas > Create Project Area.
    2. Enter a name, such as CQ Synchronizer Tutorial, for the project area.
    3. In the Process section, click Deploy predefined process templates.
    4. Select the Scrum process template.
    5. In the Members section and in the Administrators section, click Add and add the administrative user that you created previously. For example, in the figure below, the jazzadmin user has been added as a member and an administrator of the project area.

    This figure shows the Members and Administrators sections of the project area page. The name and E-mail address for the jazzadmin user are shown in each section.

    Click Save to save the new project area.

  4. Open the project area. In the Members section, click the Roles icon next to the user that you just added, as shown below.

    This figure shows the Roles icon being selected next to the jazzadmin user entry in the Members section.

    Because the ClearQuest Synchronizer Setup Wizard uses this user account to create synchronization rules for this project area, the user must be assigned a role that has permissions to create, modify, and delete synchronization rules. In the Scrum process, the Scrum Master and Product Owner roles have these permissions. Select either one of these roles.

    Click Save to save your changes to the project area.
