RTC 5.0.2 plugin integration with IIB toolkit 10.0.0.0 displays for other user profile login on the same machine
Integrating IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC) 5.0.2 Client Feature into IBM Integration BusToolkit 10.0.0.1 on Windows platform. We followed the instructions reported from the Integrating the Rational Team Concert client with the IBM Integration Toolkit documentation and it worked fine.
RTC plugin and Work item perspective is visible only for the user that directly did the installation (regardless of the fact they are administrators or simple users).
The RTC 5.0.2 plugin is only visible to the user that installed the plugin directly and not to the other users that can run IBM Integration Toolkit 10.0.0.1 on the same machine.
As IBM Integration Toolkit 10.0.0.1 should be opened by different domain users on the same machine, is it possible to install RTC plugin only once and make it available to all users?
RTC 5.0.2 P2 plugin integration with IIB toolkit 10.0.0.0 doesn't display for other user profile login.
Since IIB is not installed with IM we don't know how it installs itself and what multi-user install scenario is available later (multi-user install scenarios are listed in the Eclipse doc: Eclipse multi-user installs.
Note: Each user needs to install the P2 for RTC. That is because each user has his or her own Toolkit configuration.
This is evident in the eclipse.ini file that resides in the directory <installDirectory>/tools. The following indicates that the configuration path is unique for each user - based on the user's home directory:
** Workaround Steps **
- In the eclipse.ini file that resides in the directory <installDirectory>/tools. ( eg: C:\IBM\IIB\10.0.0.0\tools)
Typically this is the following for v10.0.0.1 on Windows:
Note: It is possible to change this path in the eclipse.ini file to a hard coded path so that all users use the same configuration, but there are some caveats to this: there might be other side effects.
- All users of the IIB Toolkit need to have write access to the configuration.
- By default, the IIB toolkit does not prompt for the workspace when the toolkit is started, so every user will try to open the same workspace.
This can be changed in the Toolkit by changing the preferences at:
Window->Preferences->General->Startup and Shutdown->Workspaces
and click on Prompt for workspace on startup.
However, all users will see the same list of workspace to select from.
- Try Login to the IIB installation machine with secondary user and Open the IIB you get the RTC plugin associated.
