Configuring Collaborator Server

To use Collaborator with Rational Team Concert, you need to configure your Collaborator server. Follow these steps:

1. Download the "Rational Team Concert Plain Java Client" libraries that match your Rational Team Concert version to your Collaborator server computer from the https://jazz.net/downloads/rational-team-concert/ web site.
2. Extract the files from the downloaded .zip to some temporary directory.
3. Delete the following .jar files from the temporary folder. This will prevent conflicts with libraries that the Collaborator server already uses.
The .jar file names may include version numbers. Delete the files that matches the names below, regardless of the version number in their name:
4. Stop the Collaborator server.
5. Copy the extracted .jar files from the temporary directory to <Your_Collaborator_Server_Dir>/tomcat/webapps/ROOT/WEB-INF/lib.

Important: This directory is a work directory of the tomcat server. Its contents is deleted when you install (or re-install) Collaborator. So, make sure to have the Collaborator server installed before copying the .jar files. Otherwise, these files will be deleted during Collaborator installation (or re-installation).

6. Start the Collaborator server.
7. Open the Collaborator Web Client. Select Admin from the main menu. This will open the Administration settings page.
8. Choose Version Control from the menu on the left. Scroll the page down to the Configure a new version control server section (it is at the end of the page).
9. Create a new configuration for Rational Team Concert:
Select Rational Team Concert from the SCM System drop-down list and click Create:


Specify the new configuration's settings:


The configuration name. It identifies the configuration in Collaborator.

Server URI

The address of your Rational Team Concert server. Typically, this is a Public URI of the server. If the Public URI is inaccessible to you for some reason, you can specify the server's IP address.

Admin user name, and

Admin password

The user account and password that Collaborator will use to connect to the Rational Team Concert server.

Note: This account must have administrator permissions in Rational Team Concert.

Add reviewers

Specifies whether Collaborator will track addition of new entries (users) to a work item's Approvals list and adds the appropriate users to a review's Participants list. See How Integration Features Work.

Remove reviewers

Specifies whether Collaborator will track deletion of entries (users) in the Participants list and update the work item's Approvals list accordingly. See How Integration Features Work.

Update assignments

Specifies whether Collaborator updates the State attribute of a user in a work item's Approvals list when that user completes, cancels or rejects the review. See How Integration Features Work.

Click Save after you specified the settings.

To check if the settings are correct click Test Connection (do this after saving the settings). If the test succeeds, you will see a notification message at the top of the page.

10.  Important: To take advantage of all integration features, you need to map the Rational Team Concert configurations you have in Collaborator. To do this, you need to have at least one review created through Rational Team Concert. For step-by-step explanation, see Mapping Configurations.

Other Configuration Actions

In addition to configuring the Collaborator server, you also need to install and configure special plug-ins for Rational Team Concert. For complete information on this, see topics of the Configuring Servers and Plug-Ins section.
