Installing the Collaborator Plug-In for Rational Team Concert

Top Previous Next

This topic explains how to install the Collaborator plug-in for Rational Team Concert.

1. Download the update site .zip package with the plug-in from our web site:
Open this web page in a web browser:
To start downloading, click the link Rational Team Concert Plug-In: Update Site & Instructions in the section that corresponds to your operating system.

Important: Since version 8.5.8500 Collaborator (both Server and Client parts and all plug-ins) requires Java 7.
Rational Team Concert 3 installs with and requires Java 5. To work with this system, you need to install Collaborator RTC update-site plug-in from CodeCollaborator/PeerReview Complete versions 65xx (as only these versions supported Java 5) and the CodeCollaborator/PeerReview Complete Server versions 7.x.

Rational Team Concert 4.x and 5.x install with and require Java 6. To work with these systems you need to install Collaborator RTC update-site plug-in from versions 7.0 to 8.4.8406 (as these versions supported Java 6) and Collaborator Server from 7.0 to the latest version.

2. Extract files from the downloaded .zip archive to the <$JAZZ_ROOT>/ccollab-update-site folder on the Rational Team Concert server computer. For example, the folder name can be like C:\Program Files\IBM\JazzTeamServer\ccollab-update-site.

rtc_udpate_site_1

3. Copy the com.smartbear.ccollab-profile.ini file from this folder to the <$JAZZ_ROOT>\server\conf\ccm\provision_profiles folder.

rtc_udpate_site_2

4. Now you need to reset your Jazz Team Server:
Open the following web page in your web browser:

If you use Rational Team Concert 5:

https://$Your_Jazz_server/jts/admin?internal#action=com.ibm.team.repository.admin.serverReset

If you use Rational Team Concert 4:

https://$Your_Jazz_server/jts/admin?internal#action=com.ibm.team.repository.admin.serverReset

If you use Rational Team Concert 3 or earlier:

https://$Your_Jazz_server/jazz/admin?internal=true
On the page, click Request Server Reset. This will command Rational Team Concert to load the Collaborator plug-in next time the Rational Team Concert service restarts.

rtc_request_server_reset

5. Restart the Jazz Server. To do this:
Select Stop the Jazz Team Server from Windows' Program Files menu, or run the shutdown.bat file in the Jazz Install directory.
Run the server by selecting Start the Jazz Team Server from the Program Files menu:

rtc_start_menu_1

6. Check whether the plug-in is loaded:
Open the Component Status page:
https://$Your_Jazz_server/ccm/admin?internal=true#action=com.ibm.team.repository.admin.componentStatus
Click the refresh icon next to the Component Status item in the left-side menu to update the page after it loads.
Check that the com.smartbear.rtc.process.ICodeCollaboratorService service is active.
Now click Provision Status in the menu menu entry:

rtc_internal_tools_menu

Search for smartbear on the page and make sure that the plug-in has been installed and initialized.

Provision Status page: Checking whether the plug-in is installed

rtc_provision_status_installing

Provision Status page: Checking whether the plug-in is started

rtc_provision_status_starting

Other Configuration Actions

After you installed the plug-in, you need to configure it. See Configuring the Collaborator Plug-In for Rational Team Concert.
