Telling Release Manager Which Providers to Use

After you have defined the login information for the providers in separate properties files, you tell Serena Release Manager which providers you want to use by specifying those properties file names in the provider properties file.

You can select one or more providers for each of the types of objects.

To specify the providers:

  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 the file.

  3. Set appropriate provider keys variable to the provider value or values that you want Serena Release Manager to use. This is the first node of the file name you used for the properties file you updated in Designating the Details for Each DU Provider.


This example shows providers selected for each of the object types, RFCs, BCRs, DCRs (requests), and DUs. The bold text indicates the specific provider key for deployment units.

# requests provider keys



# deploy units provider keys

deploy.units.providers.keys=dm_qlarius, zmf_packages


# rfc provider keys



# bcr provider keys


In the preceding example,

deploy.units.providers.keys = dm_qlarius, zmf_packages

tells Serena Release Manager to use the file and the file for DUs



tells Serena Release Manager to use the file for RFCs



tells Serena Release Manager to use the file for BCRs


requests.providers.keys = sbm_issues

tells Serena Release Manager to use the file for DCRs
