Generating Views for Deployment Path Reports

As part of the deployment path implementation, Release Control uses SBM advanced reports with view queries to collect and display deployment information for each environment in the path. The views for the advanced reports cannot be created until after the Release Package snapshot has been promoted. After you have promoted the Release Package process app, use the following procedure to generate the views.
Important: You must open Work Center after installing Release Control. If you haven't done that yet, you must do it before generating the views. Otherwise, the necessary data may not yet be loaded into SBM.

To generate the deployment information solution views:

  1. In SBM Application Repository, view the Activities page to ensure the Release Package promotion has successfully completed.
  2. Prepare the views for the deployment information tables as follows:
    1. Open a command prompt.
    2. Navigate to the following SBM folder:

      \Application Engine\bin

      For example, here are the commands to navigate to the default location:


      cd Program Files\Serena\SBM\Application Engine\bin

    3. Execute the following command and wait for it to complete:

      ttadmin.exe /GenerateViewsAllowDelete

  3. After you have generated the views, continue with Promoting Release Package Again with All Reports.
