Updating the lifecycle state for business applications

You can use the lifecycle state to filter objects for synchronization into IBM® Tivoli® Business Service Manager from TADDM. You can use the BusinessServiceLifecycle program to list information about a business application or to set the lifecycle state of a business application.

The IBM Tivoli Business Service Manager ITsystems application includes only business applications. For this reason, the BusinessServiceLifecycle program supports only business applications.

The BusinessServiceLifecycle program is in the following location:
  • For Linux® and UNIX operating systems, the BusinessServiceLifecycle script is in the $COLLATION_HOME/bin directory.
  • For Windows operating systems, the BusinessServiceLifecycle.bat batch file is in the %COLLATION_HOME%\bin folder.
Use the BusinessServiceLifecycle program with the following command-line options:
BusinessServiceLifecycle -u TADDM_username -p TADDM_password -l | -s guid state
Use the -l option to list business application lifecycle information, or use the -s option, along with a guid parameter and a state code parameter, to set a lifecycle state. You cannot use the -l option and the -s option at the same time.
The following table lists the valid state codes:
