This page expands on the server rename documentation found in the Knowledge Center. It will cover:

  • How to do a server rename if the Jazz Authorization Server is in use
  • What do to when creating a staging environment that is a subset of a production environment
  • How to deal with the Report Builder component of the Jazz Reporting Server

Server rename and the Jazz Authorization Server

Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on (SSO) is an alternate single sign-mechanism that can be used instead of Kerberos SSO, IBM WebSphere Application Server SSO, or Apache Tomcat server SSO. If you have adopted the Jazz Security Architecture, then you need take some additional steps during the server rename process:
  • You must disable the Jazz SSO feature before you import the mappings file
  • You must manually update URLs in the Jazz Authorization Server database
  • After the server rename verification process completes, you must re-enable the Jazz SSO feature and update references to the Jazz Authorization Server

Scenario: Setting up a test staging environment

One of the supported server rename scenarios is to create a staging environment using production data. If your production environment has adopted Jazz SSO, then you should set up a separate Jazz Authorization Server for use in your staging environment. You will not be able to share a single Jazz Authorization Server between your staging and production environments.

Scenario: Moving a pilot or full production deployment
