Launching TechRev Tutorials

TechRev Tutorials are Finally Here!

After countless hours of meetings, planning, recording, re-recording, and exporting, we are excited to announce a new branch of support and information -- TechRev Tutorials.  The goal behind TechRev Tutorials is to provide concise and accessible walk-through tutorials in a video format.   As we expand our content library, you'll be able to find useful and digestible video tutorials on some of the IBM software products that we support such as UrbanCode, Rational Team Concert, and Rational DOORS Next Gen.  Our final goal for this channel is to provide a complete knowledge base full of the information that software developers need to setup, modify, and enhance these software products.

Initially, these TechRev Tutorials will be viewable on our YouTube Channel.  Our final goal is to have our entire library accessible on our knowledge base / support site - You can find one of the videos from our first series embedded below.  Remember to check out our YouTube Channel for the full series.  If you have any ideas for future TechRev Tutorial videos, just comment below.  We'd love to hear your thoughts!

Agent As A Service

The first series of tutorial videos walks through the initial steps to setup an instance of UrbanCode Deploy onto a Linux server running RHEL v.6.7.  In this particular video tutorial we set the agent to run as a service, which is very useful when your server decides to restart.  Without setting the UCD agent as a service, you would have to manually start the agent again.  With this handy trick, the agent will automatically start when the server starts, avoiding the potential headache of having to manually start the agent again.  Watch the video below to learn how to do this!

UrbanCode Deploy Server as a Service

When installing the UrbanCode Server and Agent software in a Linux environment, by default they will be installed as processes that need to be started and stopped manually (for the Windows environment, the installer gives the option of installing as a service during the installation process). There are quite a few reasons that you may want to then go ahead and set them up as services instead. The main one is so that they will automatically start up as your operating system is restarted.

Use A DNG Template to Create or Copy a Project

Have you ever had a DNG project, and you just had to have that project on different Server? Maybe you like the way a project in DNG is laid out, you know folder structure, or attributes on artifacts, but you don’t want to recreate all that from scratch. What’s an Analysts to do? Well if you’re in that need, and not heard of Project Templates in DNG you might want to read on. While Project Templates won’t be an exact copy of your project it can help with structure or content.
