Using a shared user base for the Git hosting server and EWM
For creating Git commit links to IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) work items, a shared user base, such as a common LDAP, is optional. If a shared user base cannot be configured between EWM and the Git hosting server, or if there is a mismatch between some attributes in the user’s profile, then you can set up a functional user ID of an EWM user in the hook configuration.
About this task
See the help topics for each hosting server for details about how to provide a functional user ID in the hook configuration.
To link between Git commits and EWM work items without enabling process enforcement for Git push operations, add a functional user ID of an EWM user to the hook configuration. Make sure that the functional user is authorized for Git requests. See Authorizing Git requests for information on authorizing Git requests.
