Designating the Details for Each BCR Provider

You should give the connection details for each BCR provider in separate properties file for each instance. This keeps the details separate from the selection, and helps with maintenance and security.

To designate details for each BCR provider:

  1. Navigate to the Serena Release Manager common Tomcat Web server classes folder. For example:

    C:\Program Files\Serena\common\tomcat\6.0\webapps\rlm\WEB-INF\classes

  2. Open one of your provider’s properties files. For example:

  3. The details are unique for each properties file, and variables and parameters are defined in the implementation for the provider. See Adding Provider Connections  for details if you plan to use a provider other than SBM for BCRs.

    For example settings for the default SSM properties files, see the following examples.

  4. After updating the provider properties files, restart the Serena common Tomcat service.
