Other information centers

Before version 3.0.1, the CLM products had individual ICs. You can find these ICs in the IBM Support Portal.

The Support Portal's Product Information page provides a complete alphabetical list of all the IBM product information centers.

Information center contents

The Rational product information centers (ICs) provide the basic guidance for installation, configuration, and general use of the products.

Content that is published outside the IC, such as in this Deployment wiki, further illustrates topics and concepts, provides deployment-specific examples, and puts common questions and knowledge into context.

This topic provides links to the ICs, as well as some tips and tricks for using them effectively. See Finding information: Wiki, information centers, or IBM Support Portal? for details about where the content is located.

The Jazz.net information center

The Jazz.net IC provides the help for the latest milestone of the next product version. It always has the same URL, but the contents change frequently. Because it is under development, it can easily provide incomplete information or information that is unrelated to released versions of the products.

Information center versions

For most Rational products, a new IC is published for each release of the product. This versioning is important, because following the guidance in an IC for a different version of the product than you are using can lead to complications and provide the wrong information.

When you access content in the IC, you see a URL in this format:


The URL contains a version number to clarify that the IC topic relates to CLM v4.0.1. The portion of the URL after /infocenter indicates the product and the product version. In this example, clmhelp means that the IC is for the CLM products.

The next section indicates the version, release, and modification numbers of the product. Each product release follows this version naming convention. So, in this example, v4r0m1 represents version 4.0.1.

Now that you know the convention for products and versions, if you are in an IC that does not match the version of the product you are working with, you can edit the URL in your browser to access the IC for your specific product version.
