Configuring SIBus Intercept Mediator

The SIBus Intercept Mediator enterprise application contains the greenhat.sibus.agent module, which enables communication with IBM® Rational® Test Control Panel.

  3. Under Server Infrastructure, expand Java and Process Management and click Process definition.
  4. Click Java Virtual Machine, and then click Custom properties.
  5. Click New. Type in the Name field.
  6. In the Value field, enter the path to the registration.xml file, that is extracted from package and saved to a location.
    Note: The registration.xml file must point to a valid location of Rational Test Control Panel.
  7. Click Apply, OK, and then at the bottom of the page, click Save in the Messages box.
  8. Start the application. In Applications > Application Types > WebSphere enterprise applications, select the check box next to greenhat.sibus.agent and then click Start.
