Avoid using RTC CLI (SCM and LSCM ) accessing the NFS shares.
There have been issues where using scm and lscm from the command line with NFS shares is not working correctly. The details provided here will help you work around the issue.
* In case if the home directories of all users are mounted on NFS.
*If you see .nfsXXX file jazz-scm folder's daemon directory, it seems the lscm process is accessing the NFS share.
NFS file systems could prevent the CLI (scm and lscm) from working. Refer to article Tip: Using the SCM Command Line with NFS
Try the lscm commands with --config directory path is a non NFS file system option.
How to avoid --config option on every command run?
The alternative to providing --config option on the command line is to set the environment variable SCM_
This way the user does not have to specify the --config option on every command.

Program Board - Rational Team Concert 220.127.116.11
Program Board - Rational Team Concert 18.104.22.168 - This video demonstrates the new Program Board feature available in Rational Team Concert 22.214.171.124.
A new Program Board application is available from the plans menu. The Program Board shows the relationship between blocked by and depends on relationships for a set of work items scoped to a given timeline and project. It is useful for quickly identifying if there is a work item in your project that has a dependency on another work item but is attempting to be delivered or planned for a later sprint. In SAFe methodology, the Program Board provides transparency and visibility of the dependencies and enables the organization to address these by ensuring that features are delivered early enough in various sprints to avoid delays in delivery. The Program Board graphical visualization of dependencies can be used with any methodology (not just SAFe) that has parent child relationships and uses the blocked by and depends-on feature of work items to denote dependencies.
Note: If you have seen the RTC 6.0.6 technical preview of this feature, you will notice a considerable amount of changes in this release.

Query Organization Using Tags - Rational Team Concert 6 0 6 1 - This video demonstrates the new web-based tagged queries feature in Rational Team Concert 126.96.36.199
This release adds the ability to organize work item queries by using tags. This feature is available as a technical preview. This feature supports grouping queries by tags on the My Queries and Shared Queries tabs. The tags can represent a hierarchy of folders. For example, the tag 188.8.131.52 / iFix003 / verification (release / iFix / type) displays with a root of 184.108.40.206, a child iFix003, and a nested child verification. You can organize your queries with new tags or existing tags.

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?

Unidirectional & Bi Directional flow controls in IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) Streams ( SIT \ UAT\ PROD) and Best Usage.
Below is one of the example for creating a RTC streams ( SIT \ UAT\ PROD) code delivery
Best usages & control of smooth code delivery between RTC streams (SIT, UAT and Prod)
Note: One of the best ways is to make sure SIT,UAT,Pre-PROD and PROD should be Unidirectional flows, so that it will not affect the existing codes.
The process is:
Below are a few things should be taken care of for smooth change flow.
1) The more frequently that you accept and deliver (assuming that your deliveries never break the product)
2) Merge in a small set of changes than a large set of changes.
3) The flow targets of a workspace have no effect on whether or not a change set shows up as ready to be accepted by other team members who share the same flow target. It is only when you have actually delivered
4) If you don't have any latest common changes, there shouldn't be any conflicts
5) A delivery of the code is made from the Module Streams to the Main Development stream.
Note: In case for the above situation if you find the conflict between streams. Please refer to the below blog.

Enabling the RepoDebug service for Jazz Team Server (JTS) and Rational Team Concert (RTC) WebSphere Application Server (WAS) Liberty application server
The debug service is a general-purpose service that serves as the central location for finding various REST APIs that are useful for debugging. It was introduced into Jazz Foundation in v4.0.6 and is available for all JAF-based web applications.
Please refer the RepoDebug wiki for more details.
One of the best ways to have the specific version changes (change Set) into the RTC Repository workspace (Sandbox)

One of the Best ways to have the specific version changes (change Set) into the Rational Team Concert (RTC) Repository workspace (Sandbox)
Please find the below scenario and use case as an example:
1) UserA Eg: Hello.java created 20 version
2) UserA <Lock> the file hello.java version.
3) UserA Repository worksapce Set Flow target <Bi-Directional> to Stream
Note: UserB needs only Specific Version into the Repository workspace.
4) UserB Repository workspace Set Flow target <Uni-Directional> (incoming) from Stream.
5) UserB Repository workspace Check the <Pending Changes> into the Stream.
6) UserB Repository workspace Select the Specific (for example, Hello.java version 10 ) <Change Set> and <Accept> the changes from <Pending Changes>.
7) UserB Repository workspace Select the Specific option <Merge Initial Change Sets>
8) UserB Repository workspace Opens the <Change to Merge Editor> under the < Resulting Change Set > Click <Complete> and <Ok> . Closing Editor click <ok>
Note: UserB gets to see the specific changes in the UserB Repository Workspace and Workspace Changes will not flow into the Stream since its Unidirectional changes. Also, the file can’t be modified since it is locked by UserA.
