  1. On a computer running Windows, copy the install-directory/gateway/cqPackage/JazzInterop folder and paste it into the cq-install-dir/packages folder.
  2. Navigate to the cq-install-dir folder. Use the packageutil command to register the JazzInterop package with ClearQuest. If you need to apply multiple versions of the package to your schema to get to the latest package version, run this command multiple times, specifying a different package version each time before proceeding to the next step. For example:
    packageutil registerpackage JazzInterop package-version "C:\Program Files\Rational\ClearQuest\packages\JazzInterop\package-version"
  3. Open ClearQuest Designer by clicking Start > All Programs > IBM Rational ClearQuest > ClearQuest Designer. In the Schema Repository Explorer view, right-click a schema version and select Packages > Apply Package. Expand the JazzInterop folder and select the version of the package to apply. Click Next. Select the record types that you want to enable for synchronization. Click Finish. Check in the new version of the schema.
  4. Click View > Database Admin. Right-click on the user database that you want to upgrade and click Upgrade Database. The Upgrade User Database window opens. Select the new schema version from the Versions list and click OK.
