IBM Quick Deployer application setup updated.png

Authors: ThomasPiccoli, KennethThomson, JenniferLiu, KenTessier, ClareCarty
Build basis: CLM 6.0, CLM 6.0.x, CE 6.0.x

This topic leads you through making the UCD server ready for Quick Deployer and then importing the Rational_QD_60x application into UCD. You'll be shown how to:

  • create a UCD Team for Quick Deployer use and assign Roles and Users to it
  • extract the QD package json file and import it into UCD
  • configure the Install Applications process to use an NTP system clock
  • configure the Install Applications process to use a Configuration Management activation key
  • configure the Install Applications process to use a CustomLDAP
  • configure the Install Applications process to enable CLM iFix support and select a specific iFix version to install

UCD application setup

  1. Update the Prepare System step of the Install Applications process with your media settings as described on the Installation Media Configuration wiki page
  2. Set the Install Applications process properties Admin username / password as described on the Securing admin password wiki page
  3. Switch to the Processes tab and select the Install Applications process

    Chose the enableIFIX property and click Edit.

    edit Application Process Properties

  5. Select FALSE to disable iFix support by default or TRUE to enable iFix support by default.

    edit default iFix enable property

  6. You can also change the description and label if desired.
    Be sure to press Save when changes are complete.

    save default iFix support property

  7. The Default Value is now changed

    default set

  8. Select the Design tab open the Prepare System step by clicking on the Pencil icon

  9. Update the CM activation key, NTP system clock URL, the LDAP prefix, and the iFix versions.

    The CM activation key can be obtained from IBM Support and will allow Configuration Management to be enabled when the Install Applications process is run. If the value of the property is cleared the user will be prompted to enter a value on the Run Process dialog when the Install Applications process is selected

    Using the NTP system clock is enabled or disabled by selecting TRUE or FALSE from the EnableNTPclock dropdown. The NTP system clock server to be used is entered into the NTPclock field. If the NTP clock is disabled it can be enabled post install as described on the Configuring the NTP system clock wiki page

    The LDAP prefix should be set by selecting CustomLDAP from the Prefix_LDAP dropdown.

    To specify the iFix version of CLM applications to be installed, select a version in the CLMiFixVersion field. If you do not select a version, you will be prompted to enter a value in the Run Process dialog when you select the Install Applications process. To specify iFix versions for Design Management or Rhapsody Design Management, select a version in the DMiFixVersion or DMMSiFixVersion field, respectively.

    set CM, NTP, LDAP and iFix

    Note: after pressing OK on the Edit Properties dialog you must press the Save process icon or the changes will not be committed

    save process

  10. Confirm the applications environment list is empty

    empty environment

  11. Check for Team assignments on the application login as a standard user to test this

  12. Check for team assignment on components login as a standard user to test this

    team assigned process

  13. Any UCD agents that existed prior to setting up the Rational QD CLM team will need the team added manually by an administrator, otherwise, the agents will not be visible to a standard user. All UCD Agents that are created going forward should also have the Rational QD CLM team added.
