Configuring Release Control for the Integration

To configure Release Control for integration, you must do the following:

  • Configure the PPM Web Services adapter in Release Control

  • Configure the JavaScript files in Release Control

Note: For more information about the steps in this procedure, see the Installation and Administration Guide.

Before beginning this configuration, verify that Web services are enabled for use with PPM, as follows:

  1. Stop the PPM Server.

  2. Run the following script:

    sh ./kConfig.sh 
  3. Verify that the ENABLE_WEB_SERVICES parameter in the PPM server.conf configuration file is set to true.

  4. Restart the PPM Server.

Configuring the PPM Web Services Adapter

To establish integration, you must configure the PPM Web Services adapter in Release Control to convert change requests that come from PPM to generic requests that Release Control can process, as follows:

  1. Configure the PPM Web Services connector settings as described in the Release Control Installation and Configuration Guide.

    Note: Before version 7.0, PPM was known as Mercury IT Governance Center or ITG. Release Control software and documentation might still refer to PPM as IT Governance Center or ITG.

  2. In the itg-ws-adapter.settings file, under <request-type level="1">, set the requestTypeName to the name of the PPM request type representing a PPM release, for example, ALM - Release Management.

  3. In the itg-ws-adapter.settings file, under <request-type level="2">, set the requestTypeName to the name of the PPM request type representing a PPM change, for example, ALM - Request for Change (RFC), and set the parentRequestTypeName to the value of the requestTypeName in step 2.

Configuring the JavaScript Files

Configure the JavaScript files in Release Control for the integration with PPM.

Note: If PPM is (or will be) integrated with Micro FocusUniversal CMDB as well, additional configuration steps may be required in Release Control before configuring the JavaScript.

Refer to documentation for Release Control and contact Micro FocusRelease Control Support as necessary.
