Telling Serena Release Manager to Use This Provider

After you have built and packaged your new provider, you tell Serena Release Manager to use this provider, or register it, as instructed in the following procedure.

Add provider instructions (replace with your archive zip file).

To add provider instructions:

  1. Copy your archive zip file to your target server. For example,

  2. Back up your Serena Release Manager common Tomcat Web server rlm folder. For example:

    C:\Program Files\Serena\common   \Tomcat\6.0\webapps\rlm

  3. Stop the Serena Common Tomcat service.

  4. Unzip your archive zip file, such as, to your *\Tomcat 6.0 folder. For example:

    C:\Program Files\Serena\common\tomcat\6.0

  5. 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

  6. Open in your text editor.

  7. Adding providers:

    1. Add your new development change request provider to requests.providers.keys. For example:

    requests.providers.keys = sbm_issues,fs_example

    1. Add your new deployment units provider to deploy.units.providers.keys. For example:

    deploy.units.providers.keys = dm_qlarius,fs_example

  8. Save

  9. Start the Serena Common Tomcat service.


In the following example, the DCR provider fs_example has been added to the requests.providers.keys and the DU provider fs_example has been added to the deploy.units.providers.keys. In this example, Serena Release Manager would retrieve requests from the sbm_issues provider and the fs_example provider, and would retrieve deployment units from the dm_qlarius provider and the fs_example provider.

# requests provider keys

requests.providers.keys = sbm_issues,fs_example


# deploy units provider keys

deploy.units.providers.keys = dm_qlarius,fs_example
