How to register applications to ELM deployments. uc.png

Authors: Krzysztof Kazmierczyk, Ralph Schoon
Build basis: ELM 4.0 and later

The IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Solutions (ELM) can be deployed in different topologies. ELM deployments consist of a Jazz Team Server (JTS) and applications registered to the JTS. This document explains how to register applications to the JTS in the initial deployment and how to add and register applications to an existing deployment.

Manual setup

The IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Solution provides capabilities to perform a manual install and setup of an ELM deployment. It also provides capabilities to manually register new applications to an existing deployment. The following options are available when performing a manual install and setup.

Initial setup of a deployment

During the initial manual install process of a deployment the available applications can be discovered and registered in the Register Applications step of the initial JTS setup.

Adding an application to an existing deployment

To manually register a new application to an existing deployment use the Add button in the Registered Applications page of the JTS admin web UI. The top of the page will show a prompt with a link to the setup wizard for the application. To finalize the registration follow the link and execute the setup wizard for the application.

Manual setup best practices

  • Use the Add button in the Registered Applications page of the JTS admin web UI to register a new application to an existing deployment. Do not run the jts/setup again to register new applications to an existing deployment.

Automation for setup

The IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management Solution provides capabilities to automate deploying the ELM solutions. It allows to automate the initial install and setup of ELM deployments. It also allows to automate installing and registering new applications to an existing deployment.

Available commands

The following commands are available.

repotools -setup

This command is used to setup the initial deployment of a JTS and to register the applications initially available. This command was introduced in version 4.0.

repotools -registerApp

This command is used to register new applications to an ELM deployment. This command was introduced in version 6.0.1.

Automation Best Practices

  • Repotools -registerApp was introduced in version 6.0.1 to separate the registration of new applications to an existing deployment from the initial setup of a deployment. Since 6.0.1 repotools -registerApp is the only command that should be used to register a new application to an existing ELM deployment.

  • Since 6.0.1 repotools -setup is meant to be only ever run once to setup the initial deployment of a JTS and associated applications. Do not run repotools -setup again. Especially do not run repotools -setup again subsequently to register new applications to an existing ELM deployment. Running this command again can cause undesired results.
