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.

To switch to Jazz source control, specify the software configuration management client type in the ivory.properties file. To modify the ivory.properties file, have the appropriate permission.


  1. Close IBM Rational Functional Tester.

  2. Open the ivory.properties file available in the folder <Functional Tester install directory>\Functional Tester\bin\.

  3. Set the rational.test.ft.cm.clienttype to CCRC. The default value is set to NATIVE_CC. Changing the value to CCRC enables IBM Rational Functional Tester to use source control plug-ins like Jazz source control and CCRC Eclipse plug-ins.

  4. Save the ivory.properties file, and start IBM Rational Functional Tester.
