Using Visual Studio’s built-in diff/merge tool with Rational Team Concert - The IBM Rational Team Concert 6.0.4 client for Microsoft Visual Studio IDE comes with a default file compare utility, but also allows you to use any external compare tool of your choice. The compare utility that you use will come up in a separate window that you’d need to switch to in order to perform the diff/merge operations. While this offers a lot of flexibility to users in terms of using the compare tool of their own choice, the user experience could perhaps be improved if there were a compare tool that could offer a “within-the-IDE” experience. In this blog I’ll talk about one such compare tool and how to use it. [Read more...]

a) triPeople - triRetire - Remove TRIRIGA User and Read Only Dependant Records
b) triPeople - Synchronous - Remove TRIRIGA User My Profile
This move the record to Retired state, meaning they are still retained in the system. The only transitioning able to remove them from the database is setting them to NULL.
Each People BO record occupies 50 KB in average, so if you are performing massive deletion, for instance, deleting 100,000 records, this means about 5 GB being processed and worked by triRetire process at that time.
Using triRetire is the only supported process for archiving triPeople BO records.
If there is need to perform a massive retire process in system, Data Integrator may not be a good choice. Using WebServices will be a better option, but this could be enhanced to look at the number of workflows in the queue by looking at the "monitor.jsp" - Monitor a single value.
The web service code would parse and check for the numeric value returned from a URL like http
If the value is over a number (start with 9000 for example) then it would pause the integration and wait for a while until the queue is halved (4500 for example).
See that there isn't a direct way to call a workflows using WebServices. You would cause it to be executed for a given record by performing the action(transition) on the record that the workflow it tied to. For instance, if you have a workflow tied to an 'Activate' action, then using the WebService to activate the record will cause the required workflows to execute.

You may have noticed that there is a new feature in RTC 6.0.5 regarding Keyword expansion.
It may only be from the CLI and builds.
There is this statement:
2. How is the Keyword expansion enabled for a load operation if it is only used for the CLI and builds?
3. Does this mean the Keyword expansion is enabled for a load operation using the Eclipse client?

Using an Agile approach to scope software projects - Authored by Christina Lynch: Software development methodologies are often religiously observed. But we think you stand to lose out by arbitrarily closing yourself off to alternatives. That being said, when it comes to the software scoping process, the best tool for the job is Agile. Why? Because it’s proven time and time again to provide an effective and efficient framework for propelling new software initiatives forward.
Helastel take project scoping very seriously indeed and the results of doing that speak for themselves. It boils down to posing the right questions about what the business requires, while gaining a 360 degree understanding of user perspectives, to plot a pathway to the optimum end 'product'. Here's why an Agile methodology lends itself so well to supporting that process. [Read more...]

It is often asked if there is a panel or administration console available in IBM TRIRIGA for showing active users and the licenses they are consuming.
Unfortunately there is not, but to circumvent this you can use some helpful SQL queries.
The SQL queries are documented in
The queries provide a snapshot of current user and licenses being used, in a few different outputs:
