Rational Team Concert Integration - Overview

About Integration

Collaborator tightly integrates with Rational Team Concert. The integration helps you easily create reviews for Team Concert's work items, synchronize the list of reviewer participants and work item's approvers, and update the state attribute of users in the Approvals list automatically when the review status changes. For detailed information on the features, see How Integration Features Work.

Required Plug-Ins

The integration functionality is provided by two plug-ins:

One of them is installed on the Rational Team Concert server machine (Collaborator Plug-In for Rational Team Concert Server).
Another plug-in can be installed on user computers that have the Eclipse IDE (Collaborator Plug-In for Eclipse).

Both plug-ins can download from our web site:

For information on installing and configuring the plug-ins and servers, see topics of the Configuring Servers and Plug-Ins section. We strongly recommend that you read it.


Integration with Rational Team Concert requires Rational Team Concert versions 2.x - 6.0.2.
Collaborator 7 and later supports Rational Team Concert versions 4.x and 6.0. If you have Team Concert versions 2 or 3, you need to use CodeCollaborator version 6.
Collaborator 10 currently supports Rational Team Concert version 6.0.1 and later.
To use some of the features, you need to have an Rational Team Concert plug-in for the Eclipse IDE on the computer, where you have Eclipse installed.
