Rational Team Concert
You can use IBM Rational Team Concert as your software configuration management system to maintain functional test assets.
Use Rational Team Concert, you can share projects, scripts, script templates, test datapools, and object maps across the testing team. You can manage changes in test assets in a collaborative manner to track the changes efficiently.
The integration of IBM IBM Rational Functional Tester with Rational Team Concert is not supported in .Net.
Rational Team Concert must be purchased separately. You must install Rational Team Concert using IBM Installation Manager and then install IBM Rational Functional Tester using the same package group to integrate Rational Team Concert with IBM Rational Functional Tester.
With Rational Team Concert, you can manage test assets and perform source control operations such as these:
- Check-in files from your local workspace to your repository workspace.
- Make changes to the contents of your local workspace and check-in the files so that the local workspace and repository workspace contain the same versions of the files. In the repository workspace, related changes are collected as change sets so that changes in multiple files and folders can be committed in a single operation.
- Deliver the change sets to a stream so that the content in the repository workspace is made available to other team members.
When you perform source control operations in the Functional Test Projects, the results might be inconsistent. Perform all source control operations such as check-in and deliver from the Pending Changes view.

- Switching to Jazz source control
You can use Jazz source control management to manage functional test assets such as test object maps and scripts to facilitate functional testing efforts. The integration is controlled by a property that is set in the ivory.properties file in the IBM IBM Rational Functional Tester installation directory. You can use one software configuration management client type only in a session.
- Sharing a project
To manage the IBM IBM Rational Functional Tester projects by using the Jazz source control provider, share the project and select Jazz source control as the repository provider. To perform source control operations on the IBM Rational Functional Tester project, the project must be in the Jazz repository workspace. When the project is shared, the project is moved to the Jazz repository workspace.
- Merging object maps
You can merge two object maps by comparing your local copy with the repository copy of the file. IBM Rational Functional Tester merges the two object maps automatically.
