Error description

  • IBM Rational ClearCase is able to integrate Unified Change
    Management (UCM) projects with IBM Rational Team Concert (RTC)
    using the ClearCase Change Management Integration (CMI). When
    using the UCM-RTC integration, you must identify a format string
    for the provider to use when generating activity names. Two
    built-in macros %task-id and %stream-name are provided. If the
    activityFormat option is not specified, cleartool mkactivity
    will core with a segmentation fault.
    
    Steps to reproduce: Setup the UCM-RTC integration using CMI
    following the technote at
    https://www-304.ibm.com/support/docview.wss?uid=swg21640748 but
    leave out the "-options activityFormat" syntax when running
    mkcmprovider for a given stream. Using that stream try to create
    an activity with "cleartool mkact -tasks <tasks>".
    
    Workaround: Replace the CM provider on the given stream and add
    the -options syntax.
    
    cleartool mkcmprovider {-stream <stream name>} [-replace]
    {-options <cmi_options> -context <context-options> | -data
    [info_file]}
    {-enable [true | false]} provider_name
    
    For example,
    
    cleartool mkcmprovider -stream <stream> -context
    "queryUri:<query uri> -enable true -options
    activityFormat:ACT_%task-id_%stream-name,validate:true
    RTCPROVIDER
    

Local fix

Problem summary

  • In the Rational ClearCase Change Management Integration for UCM,
     cleartool setactivity and cleartool mkactivity can fail with a
    segmentation fault if the stream's Change Management Integration
     configuration is missing the "validate" keyword.
    

Problem conclusion

  • A fix is available in ClearCase versions 8.0.0.10 and 8.0.1.3
