Rational Team Concert views and perspectives are not visible when shell-sharing with Rational Software Architect



When IBM Rational Team Concert and IBM Rational Software Architect are installed together, the Rational Team Concert views and perspectives might not be initially visible or available in the view and perspective selection menus. This technote provides a workaround.


After starting the IDE, expected Rational Team Concert views, such as the "Team Artifacts" view, and expected Rational Team Concert perspectives, such as the "Work Items" perspective, are not visible and are not available in the selection dialogs.


The Rational Software Architect capability configuration is disabling a capability that controls the availability of these Rational Team Concert views and perspectives.


Rational Team Concert IDE client environments (Microsoft Windows and Linux).

Resolving The Problem

To resolve this issue:

  1. Open the Windows > Preferences dialog.
  2. Go to the General / Capabilities section.
  3. Do one of the following:
    1. Fully enable the "Team" capability to enable all possible capabilities.

    2. Click the "Advanced..." button, expand the "Team" node and enable the "Jazz Source Control" capability to only enable Rational Team Concert capabilities.
