Specifying the query and connection when establishing a Change Management Interface (CMI) task provider

Question & Answer


What is the behavior of the mkcmprovider command when the case of a key is incorrect for the specified provider?


As indicated in the mkcmprovider reference page, the key:value pair that specifies the query takes two forms:
  • queryuri:query for ClearQuest
  • queryUri:query for Rational Team Concert

Note the difference in case. Similarly, for the connection:
  • connection.baseurl=base-url for ClearQuest
  • connection.baseUrl=base-url for Rational Team Concert

If the case of either of these keys is incorrect for the specified provider, the operation fails to establish the provider, but does not return any error.
