Jim Herron, Island Training CTO and IBM Champion, continues the examination of Rational Quality Manager recorded for a recent IBM Middleware User Community webcast. In these five videos, we look at the test assets inside RQM that show the details and results when executing tests.
Jim Herron, Island Training CTO and IBM Champion, shows you the test assets in Rational Quality Manager (RQM) for planning and constructing your test effort. These videos were recorded for a recent IBM Middleware User Community webcast.

An important step in setting up SAFe support in RTC is to import the SAFe program and portfolio-level reports from the IBM SAFe landing page.
Click on the video below to view how to:
- Update the Data Warehouse on the Data Collection Component
- Connect the Data Warehouse to the Jazz Reporting Service
- Import the Out-of-the Box Reports on the Jazz Reporting Service
- Import the SAFe program and portfolio-level reports on the Jazz Reporting Service
Going to IBM InterConnect? Come say “hi” to Island experts at our hands-on workshop as well as in the DevOps Zone during Expo Hours.
Register for the workshop by adding session DOP-1930 to your agenda. Seating IS limited!
Thinking about trying Jazz 6.0.1 SAFe Program support in your current RTC environment? You can, without disturbing your current RTC projects!
- Step 1: Create a new project area from the SAFe 3.0 Process (Portfolio) template.
- Step 2: Create a new project area from the SAFe 3.0 Process (Program) template.
- Step 3: Associate the new SAFe project areas with your existing RTC, DNG, and RQM project areas.
To watch an simple example of creating the RTC project associations, where all projects are on a single server, click on the video below.
You can try it yourself at InterConnect 2016. Join Jim Herron and me at our hands-on workshop, DOP-1930, or find us in the DevOps Zone in the Expo area for a one-on-one session.
In our previous article, we began exploring features found in Quick Planner, a feature first introduced in the v5.0.2 version of RTC and extended in the just-released V6.0 version. We learned how to use the interface as both developers and team members by looking at and prioritizing assigned work items.
In this article we will look at Quick Planner from the perspective of a ScrumMaster or project manager by exploring the features in Quick Planner that allow rapid work when prioritizing and grooming the backlog, as well as tracking team status.
For developers, Rational Team Concert offers deep integrations with the Eclipse and Visual Studio IDE’s (Integrated Development Environments). These deep integrations allow developers to complete tasks such as:
- View and prioritize the work items assigned to them
- Create a new work item and associate it with a plan
But, what if you’re a developer who is not near your favorite IDE? Is there way to quickly and efficiently handle these tasks?
In the most recent update to Rational Team Concert, developers and other members of the development team make quick edits to work items and plans using a new feature called Quick Planner. In this blog article, we will look at how developers can utilize the Quick Planner, which is now available in the v5.0.2 version of RTC.
Our story so far: Island Training took on a challenge to create an interesting and engaging live demo of an end-to-end DevOps process. We set a 10-minute limit for the full demo cycle, from requirement to deployed personalized tickets. In Part 1, we took advantage of links between DOORS Next Generation (DNG) and Rational Team Concert (RTC) to create work items from requirements. In Part 2, we used the REST API to generate our deliverable text file.
In this chapter, we’ll explain how UrbanCode Deploy played a key role in meeting the 10-minute demo deadline.
In our first episode, Island Training took on a challenge for IBM’s InterConnect conference: create an interesting and engaging live demo of an end-to-end DevOps process for the Expo Hall. We set a 10-minute limit for the full demo cycle, from requirement to deployed personalized tickets. In Part 1, we explained how we took advantage of the links between DNG and RTC to create work items from requirements.
In this chapter, we use the REST API to generate our deliverable text file.
For our demonstration, we need to create a text file with all the names that we gather from Drink Order requirements. Manually creating the file will eat valuable time from the 10-minute demo—automation is critical to the demo’s speed/success. So, we need to programmatically connect to either RTC or DNG. But how?
Recently, Island Training was challenged to create a live demonstration of an end-to-end DevOps process for the IBM InterConnect 2015 conference where most attendees would be unfamiliar with IBM Rational tools. Showcasing DOORS Next Generation (DNG), Rational Team Concert (RTC), Rational Quality Manager (RQM) and UrbanCode Deploy (uDeploy), the demo had to be FAST—no longer than 10 minutes. And, being Island Training, the demo needed to be interactive, and, it needed an island theme.
This story (in several parts) describes the evolution of that demo and an overview of the features that allowed us to perform the amazing 10-minute sprints. This article (Part 1) shows you how we leverage links between DNG and RTC to quickly create work items. Part 2 will show how we automatically create our deliverable using the RTC REST API. Part 3 features uDeploy and how easy it is to set up and integrate a deployment process.
