Using Site Administration, you create and maintain your ALM projects.
Select one of the following:
Open your Web browser and type:
http://<ALM server name>[<:port number>]/qcbin. The Application Lifecycle Management Options window opens. Click the Site Administration link.
Alternatively, open your Web browser and type your Site Administration URL:
http://<ALM server name>[<:port number>]/qcbin/SiteAdmin.jsp.
The first time you start Site Administration, files are downloaded to your client machine. ALM then carries out a version check on the client files installed on your client machine. If there is a newer version on the server, updated files are downloaded to your client machine.
Note: If you run ALM over a virtual environment, such as Citrix or VMware, only the system administrator can install a new version.
If domains or projects were previously created with locale-specific symbols in their names on a localized ALM server’s Site Administration, you may not be able to access Site Administration from a non-localized client machine. If this occurs, change the client machine locale to correspond to the ALM server’s locale.
After the ALM version has been checked and updated if necessary, the Application Lifecycle Management Site Administration Login window opens.
Note: If you are an external authentication user, this window is bypassed and you are automatically logged in to Site Administration using your external authentication credentials.
- Open your Web browser and type:
- In the User Name box, type the name of a user who is defined as a site administrator. The first time you log in to Site Administration, you must use the site administrator name that you specified during the installation of ALM. After you log in to Site Administration, you can define additional site administrators. For details, see Defining Site Administrators.
In the Password box, type your site administrator password. The first time you log in to Site Administration, you must use the site administrator password that you specified during the installation of ALM.
To define or change the site administrator password, see Creating and Changing Passwords.
