Answer

For version 3.0 entitlement, review technote 1451088: How to deploy Change Management Advanced for Jazz Team Server 3.0 entitlement for Rational ClearQuest users

What is Change Management Advanced for Jazz Team Server 4.0 entitlement?

As a ClearQuest client, you are entitled to select capabilities of Jazz Team Server as part of your ClearQuest 8.0 or later license, as outlined below. The entitled license keys provide the Jazz Team Server capabilities described in Table 1, where "RW" specifies read/write access and "R" specifies read-only access. The entitlement is equivalent to the Rational Team Concert Contributor license functionality.

ClearQuest customers with valid ClearQuest Authorized User Licenses and current Software Subscription and Support are entitled to an equivalent number of ClearQuest Change Management Advanced 4.0 Authorized User Licenses, for use only by the users attributable to those ClearQuest Authorized User Licenses.

For example, if you have 3 ClearQuest Authorized User Licenses for users A, B, and C, then you are entitled to 3 ClearQuest Change Management Advanced 4.0 Authorized User Licenses, where 1 license is used by user A, 1 license is used by user B, and 1 license is used by user C.

Licensee can use only those ClearQuest Floating or Authorized User Licenses that have current, paid-up IBM Software Subscription and Support to obtain ClearQuest Change Management Advanced Floating or Authorized User Licenses. By downloading the license keys, licensee agrees to these terms and the terms in the accompanying license agreement.

ClearQuest customers with valid ClearQuest Floating User Licenses and current Software Subscription and Support are entitled to an equivalent number of ClearQuest Change Management Advanced 4.0 Floating User Licenses provided that, at any given time, the sum of the unique active ClearQuest Floating Users, ClearQuest Change Management Advanced 2.0 Floating Users, and ClearQuest Change Management Advanced 4.0 Floating Users is not greater than the total number of ClearQuest Floating User Licenses that you have.

Consider a customer with 20 ClearQuest Floating User Licenses.
  • The following scenario is allowed:
20 unique active users, with each user using both a ClearQuest Floating User License and a ClearQuest Change Management Advanced License.
  • The next scenario is not allowed:
40 unique active users, with 20 users using a ClearQuest Floating User License and 20 different users using a ClearQuest Change Management Advanced License.

ClearQuest customers are entitled to use the Jazz Team Server with an Apache Tomcat server. If you have a licensed version of IBM WebSphere Application Server, you can install Jazz Team Server into that WebSphere Application Server installation as per the terms of use agreement.
