Preparing the synchronization environment

To use the ClearCase Synchronizer and ClearCase Baseline Importer, you must set up a synchronization host and create Rational® ClearCase® and Rational Team Concert™ accounts with the proper permissions for running synchronizations.

About this task

To use the ClearCase Synchronizer or the ClearCase Baseline Importer, you must first configure one or more synchronization hosts to support synchronization between Rational Team Concert source control and Rational ClearCase. The ClearCase Synchronizer component, which runs on a computer configured to be a synchronization host, uses the Jazz™ Build Engine to manage synchronization between Rational Team Concert source control and Rational ClearCase.

You must identify a synchronization process Rational ClearCase account so that the synchronization process can access Rational ClearCase, and set up a synchronization process Rational Team Concert account and add it to your project or team area so that the synchronization process can access the Rational Team Concert repositories.

The ClearCase Synchronizer uses the full capability of the synchronization process. It moves data in both directions between Rational Team Concert source control and Rational ClearCase.

The ClearCase Baseline Importer uses only one part of synchronization. It moves data one way from Rational ClearCase to Rational Team Concert source control.
