Pinned topic Applying a new version of an process template to an existig project

‏2012-09-05T14:16:09Z |
Hello,

Consider the following scenario;

1. In RMC; Generate and deploy an RTC process template.

2. In RTC; Create an RTC project using the new process template.

2. In RMC; Add some new things to the configuration and generate a new version of the RTC process template.

3. In RTC: Apply the new version of the RTC process template to the same (existing) project. Question: Is this possible? If so - how can I do this? Or put another way - how can I keep my RTC project "up-to-date" with new versions of its (RMC-generated)process template?

Many thanks for any input!

    For a running project, you will need to keep track of your changes and apply your changes individually.
    For example, if you add a new role to the method, you need to add the role to RTC. If you add a new work item type, you will need to add that new work item type.

    I realize this is not ideal - this should improve over time.

    Hi

    Currently there is no simple method to sync an updated process template to an project arera that is created based on a previous version of process template. As Burce points out, users can directly add all those new elemenets such as roles, work item types, etc into the project area.

    Long term it's conceivable that some solution is devised to automate this, but at this time, we are focusing on to auto map as many things from RMC to Jazz process templates as associating the right work item types to RMC generated work items, model and generate workflows, generate permisions, associate users to roles, etc.

    Please feel free to contact us if you have any suggestion in improving RMC's integration with RTC/Jazz/CLM. RMC 7.5.2 is just our 1st cut in this area, and we like to hear suggestions from users who are interested in this.

    Thanks much.

    Hej,

    Thanks for your reply - the coming improvements of the RMC/RTC-integration that you are mentioning will be very much appreciated.

    Hi Jan,

    Thanks much for your understanding. We are adding more RMC/RTC integration functions and refine existing ones as we speak.

    As for your requirement, I have been thikning of it more. A possible solution is to persist the corresponding RMC team configuration selection, that is, the selctions users make in the Jazz process template wizard, and then version them. The version number can be used to sync up between RMC and Jazz process templates/project areas, and if there is older version associated with an existing project area, RMC can calculate the difference and populate the difference into that project area accordingly.

    Please feel free to send us your suggestion and how important to your organization for those desired new enhnacments. You can also file an enhancement request to RMC so your requests will get more attention. Finally your feedbacks on using thise RMC/RTC integration will be greatly appreciated.
