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 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.

How does Hierarchy Logic in RTC Source Control Components work?
Problem: When the component is selected, multiple sub-components are getting added to the stream.
Steps to reproduce:
Actual Output: The selected component is adding sub-components into the repository workspace.
1) Reason for adding sub-component into the workspace when root component is added

The repository tools (repotools) application is a command-line interface that provides a set of tools to manage Jazz based applications such as the Jazz™ Team Server, Change and Configuration Management, Data Collection Component, Global Configuration Management, Quality Mana
The verify command is used for contents verification in the database. The command "repotools -verify" can be used to verify your database as part of a weekly/monthly maintenance schedule, or prior to upgrade or other major deployment activities. This command allows logical verification of objects, in addition to some mid-level concepts, such as context checking. You can use the

Complex distributed systems require an automated, layered approach to monitoring. Most organizations monitor key parts of their infrastructure but monitoring typically stops at the application layer because it can be difficult to know what and how to effectively monitor applications without an understanding of the application architecture.

Did you know that poor requirements management is among the significant contributing factors in the failure of a project? Improper requirements management can lead to disconnected teams, wasted time, out-of-control costs and unsatisfied customers. If you use documents, spreadsheets, emails, wikis and other conventional office and productivity tools to keep track of your business, customer or product requirements, you could be putting your project at risk. Check out the Unlock the cloud for requirements management article by Shephen Hollis to learn more.
