Repository tools command to prepare an ELM application for Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on

Use the prepareJsaSsoMigration command to prepare a Jazz® Team Server or IBM Engineering Lifecycle Management (ELM) application for Jazz Security Architecture single sign-on (SSO) authentication.

Before you begin

Important:
  • Before you run the command, you must upgrade Jazz Team Server and any applications that will be enabled for Jazz Security Architecture SSO to version 6.0 or later. The upgrade must be complete and verified.
  • This command applies to ELM applications that have repotools command scripts: Jazz Team Server, Change and Configuration Management, Data Collection Component, Global Configuration Management, Quality Management, IBM Engineering Lifecycle Optimization - Engineering Insights, and Requirements Management.
  • The server must be running when you run the command.

The prepareJsaSsoMigration command is one of two repository tools commands that enables existing ELM product deployments to use Jazz Security Architecture SSO for ELM deployments. This command must be run before the migrateToJsaSso command. Both commands must be run on the Jazz Team Server if any applications that are registered with the server are enabled for Jazz Security Architecture SSO. Not all applications must be enabled at the same time. However, the login experience is not a single sign-on process until all ELM applications that are registered with the Jazz Team Server are enabled.

Purpose

You run the prepareJsaSsoMigration command while the Jazz Team Server and ELM applications are running to prepare them for Jazz Security Architecture SSO authentication. The command generates a data file that is needed by the migrateToJsaSso command.

Example

The following example is for Jazz Team Server. To use this command for a different ELM application, use the repotools script that is associated with that application. Table 1 describes each repotools script and the associated ELM application that it manages. The scripts are in the JazzInstallDir/server directory.
