Installing the Collaborator Plug-In for Rational Team Concert Server

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

Important: Since version 8.5 Collaborator requires Java 7. Rational Team Concert 6.0.1 and later also require Java 7. Whereas, Rational Team Concert 4.x - 6.0 (prior to 6.0.1) require Java 6, and RTC 2.x - 3.x require Java 5.
Therefore to integrate Collaborator and Rational Team Concert you will need to install a specific version of Rational Team Concert Plug-In.
To integrate with Rational Team Concert 2.x - 3.x you also need to downgrade your Collaborator (both Server and Client components) to CodeCollaborator/PeerReview Complete version 6.5.x (as only these versions supported Java 5).

1. Download the update site .zip package with the plug-in from our web site:
For Rational Team Concert Server version 6.0.1 and higher download the java_7 version of Collaborator Eclipse Plug-In.
For Rational Team Concert Server versions 4.x - 6.0 (prior to 6.0.1) download Rational Team Concert Plug-In version 8.4.8406.001.

Note: For more information about different versions, see Version Compatibility Table in Overview.

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 4-6:

If you use Rational Team Concert 3 or earlier:

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.collaborator.rtc.process.ICollaboratorService 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.
