Impact Assessment
Impact Description

This is a maintenance interim fix. It contains fixes for client-reported and internally found defects.

Test Results

Definitions

Regression: An error in the Maintenance Delivery Vehicle (MDV) that produces incorrect or unexpected behavior causing a supported feature to stop functioning as designed.
This includes:

  • Coding errors that cause a regression
  • Documentation or packaging problems that cause a regression
  • Errors reported in a new function delivered in a MDV that cause a regression

Incomplete: An error in the MDV has not regressed, but does not work as designed.
This includes:

  • Fixed APARs which did not solve the original problem but did not break anything new
  • APARs reporting documentation errors, such as readme errors, that cause problems applying an MDV but do not lead to a regression


Notes:
  • Regression and incomplete APARs are considered fix-in-error or MDV-in-error
  • Definitions above apply only to valid APARs that result in product fixes (APARs returned as working-as-designed are not assessed for being fix-in-error)
  • Issues in major releases due to new functionality do not apply in this definition

There are no known regressions to report.

In addition to the fixes listed in this document, the iFix may also contain fixes for security issues.

For more details, please refer to the IBM Product Security Incident Response (PSIRT) Blog.

PI22400

Fix defect in redirect web page.

NOTE: If the context root used by the any application is not the default, it will be necessary to rename the WAR file (and adjust some of the directory paths referenced below) based on the context root currently in use. For example,

  • if your current context root for Requirements Management is 'rdm', you must rename the rm.war file to rdm.war.
  • if your current context root for Quality Management is 'jazz', you must rename the qm.war file to jazz.war
  • if your current context root for Change and Configuration Management is 'jazz', you must rename the ccm.war file to jazz.war

In summary, the name of the WAR file needs to be the same as the respective context root in use.

NOTE: For users of the RDNG browser add-on, the rm.war file must be properly matched with the browser plugin files. This only applies during installation of the plugin, so for those users that have already installed the plugin, no action is required. For any new installations of the browser plugin, the customer should contact IBM Support and request a refresh of the browser add-on files along with the properly paired version of the rm.war file that includes this fix.

PI36961

Full Text Search stemming doesn't work correctly in non-English European languages (Backport 345158 to 5.0.2 ).

Language specific stemming is not enabled by default. To enable specific language stemming, select the Advanced property page of each application (e.g. ccm, qm, jts...). Change the value of

com.ibm.team.fulltext.lucene.language.stemmer.enabled
to
true
.

Restart the server.

The setting has three values:

  1. "legacy" (the default) for compatibility with the existing indices. In this case the English stemmer is used for all languages (except for the Asian languages).
  2. "true" which enables a stemmer specific to the language defined by the "Indexing Language" property or by the server locale if the property is not set.
  3. "false" which disables stemming all together

Note, if you've already created workitems in a non-English European language, you need to run repotools -rebuildTextIndices to be able to search these with language-specific stemming.

The stemmer uses the default language specified on the server machine.

When you describe a problem to an IBM software support specialist, be as specific as possible and include all relevant background information so that the specialist can help you solve the problem efficiently. To save time, know the answers to these questions:


  • What software versions were you running when the problem occurred?
  • Do you have logs, traces, or messages that are related to the problem?
  • Can you reproduce the problem? If so, what steps do you take to reproduce it?
  • Is there a workaround for the problem? If so, be prepared to describe the workaround.

If you have helpful information to diagnose or identify the problem on your system, you can provide this data by following the instructions to exchange information with IBM Technical Support.
