Source control command line interface environment variables

The following table lists the source control command line interface environment variables.

Table 1. Source control command line interface environment variables
Header Header
SCM_CONFIG_DIRECTORY Allows the user to specify a configuration directory.
SCM_ALLOW_INSECURE Allows the tool to run even if the directories that contain sensitive information are not secured.
Note: Secured means that the CLI removes the group and other permissions for all files in the configuration area ($SCM_CONFIG_DIRECTORY, usually ˜/.jazz-scm). If the CLI is unable to set the permissions, it does not start. To configure the CLI to continue running rather than shutting down immediately, set the SCM_ALLOW_INSECURE environment variable. By default this behavior runs only on Linux and UNIX. To configure similar behavior on other operating systems, add a script to the install/jazz/scmtools/eclipse/scripts/platform-name directory. Valid platform names are unix, windows, z, and i.
SCM_MAX_CHANGES Allows the user to configure the number of changes to show or interpret in a change set.
SCM_DAEMON_PATH Allows the user to set the path to the daemon binary file. By default, the value is scm.
SCM_DAEMON_CONNECTION_TIME_OUT Allows the user to control how long a daemon waits for its initial connection. The value must be an integer that is expressed in milliseconds and the default is 120000 ms.
SCM_DAEMON_INACTIVE_TIME_OUT Allows the user to control how long a daemon waits after all its connections close. The value must be an integer that is expressed in milliseconds and the default is 7200000 ms.
SCM_DAEMON_START_DEBUG Starts the daemon in debug mode.
SHOW_DEPRECATED_HELP Allows the user to view deprecated Help.
