configuration management Questions

Tools like JIRA, Service Now for Incident management, I'm looking for a software platform that will keep track of all related documentation, test plans, user sign offs etc... But what I have not been able to find and is critical for me is a Parent - Child, Child - Child relationship of all changes.

Such as:

CR12345 - is the parent record

  CR12345A - is a child record to CR12345

     CR12345A1 - is a child record of CR12345A

CR12345B is a child record to CR12345

Has anyone seen software that can support this?

I'm the Configuration Manager for a large enterprise project. I was added to the team after around 8 months worth of developement/staging had already taken place. We're working toward a short-term ATO, and PMO is looking to baseline our applications. My argument is that we're not ready to baseline, as we're still in developemnt. No configuation items are recorded in Remedy, the Change Managemnet process isn't fleshed out (as that is also my tasking), and we have no historical records that I can find for how are architecture came to this point. Simply, here, this is version one, and now start documenting from this point forward.  Am I worng in my push-back on this stance? Shouldn't I first work to identify the CIs and their historical changes (as best as I can documnet)? Further info: this system will be the subject of an offical audit, not just my configuration audit.

With help of Oracle Virtual Box provider, how we can create our own customized vagrant box with in-house tools?

I've used Ratiional ClearCase and ClearQuest in the past, but it's been a long time - at least seven years since I used CQ, and probably a decade since I used CC. On a project where we used both, I had them integrated. (I used them enough to refer to them collectively as "ClearWaste".)

I'm currently tasked with evaluating various CM-related suites for where I'm working now, and I'm finding it very confusing to determine just what IBM is currently offering.

I see ClearCase and ClearQuest are still sold. Are they actively supported?

As far as I can tell, DOORS and DOORSNg have replaced RequisitePro.

I see there's Jazz and Team Concert -- what's the difference between the two?

Does Team Concert use the other tools like ClearCase, ClearQuest, and DOORS? Does it replace them?

And finally, do the IBM tools still have a very cost compared to tools like the Atlassian Suite and Microsoft TFS?

I'm kind of limited in what I can see at IBM's web site since they use a great deal of YouTube videos and YouTube is blocked here. The only browser we have is IE and the IBM web sites to try demo version of the tools won't on IE, either.

What steps must the CM Manager perform to properly complete a CM project?

Am working in a old project which has many hg subrepos which seems to be problematic. Am planning to remove subrepos and move to main repository. Is there any better approach to do the same or any tools? Also want to maintain the same metadata and not interested to add all subrepo as single commit to main repository.

Hello,

I have a number of Linux shell scripts for automation of particular operations. For example: merging SVN revisions from one branch to other, update statuses of JIRA tickets, make an Oracle eBS build from sources stored in SVN or git etc. 

I'm trying to use these automation scripts for different infrastuctures and customers. But I cannot share the script code for mentioned customers. Is it possible to put automation shell scripts in cloud and call these scripts from different infrastuctures? Are some available technical solutions how to call Linux shell scripts from cloud?

For example in cloud I could have shell function svn_merge() with parameters. But this script could be called from different infras with different parameters like "svn_merge <parameters>".

I will be happy to see any suggestions, any links to any free or commercial solutions.

 

Thanks in advance!

I am looking to established a good CM Baseline, and I need some reference material that walks me through successfully establishing and maintaining a good CM Baseline

Hello Support,

Can you please tell me if there is a CLI way to manually change the attribute "status" from rejected to released state for an object within CM/SYnergy?

I tried to delete "status" attribute. It doesn't even allow me to delete.

I am ccm_admin role.

If I do "ccm attr -s status object_full_name" it does show me a rejected. I need to change it to "released".

I know base model doesn't allow.

But i need to override for some objects with ccm_admin privilege.

Thank you.
