There is a documented procedure to install the DOORS client in silent mode and when you install a new DOORS client the old one is automatically uninstalled.
But, since the release 9.6.1, DOORS client is only a 64 bit application. That means if you have a DOORS client 32 bit installed, installing a new DOORS client 64 bit won't uninstall automatically the old release. This is a problem when you want to install DOORS in silent mode as having a DOORS client 32 bit and 64 bit installed on the same machine is unsupported by IBM.
To uninstall DOORS client 32 bit in silent mode, you need first to find the GUID of your release. To find the GUID, you can use WMIC, here is a sample script (.bat) to retrieve that information:
In this example, I am trying to find the GUID of a DOORS 9.5 client.
Once you get the GUID, you can use this command to uninstall your DOORS client:

What’s new in Team Concert Jenkins plug-in 184.108.40.206 - We are pleased to announce that Team Concert Jenkins plug-in 220.127.116.11 is here! The Team Concert Jenkins plug-in integrates Jenkins with Rational Team Concert’s (RTC) SCM and Build capabilities using the richer features of the build toolkit. It provides options to configure Jenkins jobs to use RTC source control. Jenkins jobs can also be configured to use the source control options specified in an RTC build definition, facilitating Jenkins builds to be managed from RTC and take advantage of the traceability provided across RTC work items, builds, and change sets. The plug-in also publishes the changelog information in the Jenkins builds and supports polling....
An overview of the different build configurations supported by the Team Concert Jenkins plug-in - Using the Team Concert Jenkins plug-in, you can configure your Jenkins jobs to use Rational Team Concert (RTC) source control and, optionally, report information back to Rational Team Concert builds. The plug-in integrates Jenkins with RTC using the richer features of the build toolkit. This plug-in is different from the other Rational Team Concert plug-in for Jenkins which uses SCM CLI to integrate with RTC. This article provides an overview of the different build configurations supported by the Team Concert Jenkins plug-in 18.104.22.168. For instructions on how to setup and configure the plug-in, refer to Team Concert Jenkins plug-in wiki....
Loading symbolic links correctly when using the Rational Team Concert/Jenkins integration - When using the Jenkins plugin to load files from Jazz SCM it is possible that the symbolic links in the Jazz streams will not be loaded correctly. The problem is that the default Java runtime for Jenkins will not know how to deal with the symbolic links. It is necessary to manually include the .dll/.so files into the Jenkins library path so the symbolic links will load correctly. This article will detail how to setup Jenkins to get the symbolic links to load correctly....

When DOORS 9 is integrated with Rational Quality Manager, Rational Design Manager or Rational DOORS Next Generation, it uses Discovery Links to link DOORS requirement to other Artifacts.
This means that DOORS does not store any of those links but it queries the other tools to know if there are links to DOORS requirements. Here is more details about discovery links : http
Baseline is one of the main feature in DOORS. As those OSLC links are not stored in DOORS, what about those links in baselines ?
Unfortunately those OSLC links are not displayed in DOORS baseline:
Baselined objects have different URIs than the original object URIs. When creating a baseline in a module, DOORS does not create new links from the baselined objects to the OSLC provider. Even if DOORS created the links, there is no way to make these links immu
To summarize, OSLC integration doesn't support baselines.

Have you have ever had performance issues with loading data into your location hierarchies? Or making large changes to hierarchical data? Are you reorganizing your company, adding new departments, moving or combining others? Is it taking a long time to process these changes?
When an update is made to the hierarchy, the entire tree is rebuilt. So if you have multiple updates you are making, it is rebuilding the entire tree. If you have a rather large tree with many layers or branches, this could be quite time consuming and frustrating while you wait for it to update. Do not fear! There are some things that can be done to make it less time consuming!
One of the things to look at is in your Admin Console. You would go to Cache Manager and look for System Cache Processing Mode. By default this is set to Normal.
You would want to set this to Data Load Mode and then click on Change Cache Processing. It is worth noting that when using Data Load Mode, it will not update the tree but it will be faster to process because it is not updating the tree after every single update. Once the process is done, the tree can be rebuilt once and not after every update.
You don’t have to necessarily go into the Console to set that every time you are adding something into a hierarchy or making an update. If you have a workflow that is currently used to process your hierarchy inserts and/or updates, you can add a custom task to turn on Data Load Mode and then turn it back to Normal after your processing is complete.
To set it to Data Load Mode, in the custom task, you would set the class name to com.
To set it back to normal, in the custom task, you would set the class name to com.
For additional information regarding custom tasks, you can reference the following wiki:
