Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
-- This interim fix addresses a vulnerability in OpenSSL. Review Security Bulletins CVE-2014-0076 and CVE-2014-0160 for more information.

Fix Pack 3 (8.0.1.3)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM97153 EmailRelay IC does not instruction customers to increase the multiline text length
PM97101 In the ClearQuest 8.0.1 Information Center, it has this section on escaping special characters in full text search. This section should be eliminated because the search does not work this way. SOLR does a natural search and eliminates all special characters so it looks for the word within the special characters in all the fields unless you specify a particular field.
PM95096 CQWEB 8.0.1 load balancing needs more information
PM92893 Defect in PM51132 is not completely fixed. It looks likes the reference fields are still broken. If you are setting a reference field on tab that is not displayed on the Defect submit form, it only adds the first value to the reference field and ignores the rest of the values.
PM92563 Changing the admin password and the impact on FTS
PM90345 Setting the Remember User ID checkbox in the CQ Web 7.1 login page, would default the cursor to jump to the Password field. In CQ web 8 the cursor goes to the User ID field. Users inherently start typing their passwords when the form is loaded not realizing that they are typing it in cleartext in the username field. It is a security risk. The actual behavior is not consistent. It depends on browser type and version. If you cancel on login and then click Log in again multiple times, the cursor will appear alternating between Login ID and Password field.
PM88988 When a new record type, stateless or stateful, is created with the Eclipse Designer the default behavior of the system field ratl_mastership is set to READONLY. The classic Designer behaves differently, setting the behavior of ratl_mastership as OPTIONAL. For stateful record types the behavior for the submitted state is set correctly as OPTIONAL, but any other states inherit the default READONLY behavior. With this settings users are not able to change the mastership of stateless record type and stateful record types in any state except submitted. This issue affects both 7.1.x and 8.0.x (all versions)
PM66412 Users with the CQ privilege 'All Users/Groups Visible' unchecked still can see other users in the record tabs when the references to users are not in the display list of the query. Also when submitting records that have fields which are references to users he can see all other users via the choice lists of these user reference fields. The same applies for groups and is visible in all clients.
PM63880 ClearQuest domain\username misformed on refresh/timeout
PM56099 Applying package fails with the following error: CRMCU0051E Attempting to use a string which is too long. The limit on the number of bytes in the string is 255 but the string actually contained 268. The string was: Enabled schema for '2.1.3' version of package 'Attachments'. This error happens when upgrading package version of multiple record types with double-byte names. It is confirmed that the problem happens with Chinese and Japanese names. The error happens when upgrading the package version of three or more record types. This error happens with any package, for example Attachment package, or AuditTrail package.
PM44288 Failure to create foreign key indexes on Oracle
PM38989 An error appears when trying to add multiple lines of text in a multi-line string field using the cqtool edit_record command.
PM37014 Error 'Illegal declaration of anonymous subroutine' occurs when opening Hook or Record Script in Epic editor
PM22934 Resultset columns in cqtool output are ordered in opposite order compared to specification in the command
PI10332 On the Web client the value_change hook on a ref-list fires twice. The first time GetFieldValue( $fieldname ) returns an empty list, the second time it returns an accurate list. This is happening when using blank schema, and the problem is *only on the Web*. The problem has been verified with both FireFox 25 and InternetExplorer8. Testing on the Windows native and eclipse clients did NOT exhibit this behavior - the hook fires once and GetFieldValue($fieldname ) returns the correct value, which is what we would expect on the web
PI09577 The function GSU_CQXE_SubmitRecord removes leading blank lines from field values in multiline strings sent to the function on the new Submit form.
PI08729 When de-replicating an IBM Rational ClearQuest (CQ) MultiSite clan, following the last rmreplica, and deactivate, the site-name should be renamed to as it would exist in a CQ database that had never been replicated. This further affects utilities that anticipate and not an actual site-name for non-replicated CQ databases. multiutil lsreplica also doesn't indicate that the remaining site is deactivated (which is confusing). Affect: This particular use case affects an environment in which the CQ clan had been deactivated and attempts were made to setup CQ Full-Text-Search (FTS) using the cqtsadmin.pl configuraiton utility. Specifically, when using the utility, the configuring was done with typical parameters --init_cq_fts followed by --setup_cq_fts. During the batch indexing phase (using cqtsdbcrawler.pl), because the environment was interpreted as non-replicated, it attempted to use for the site-name, but in fact the site still had a name after it was deactivated. This caused cqtsdbcrawler.pl to fail to find an XML tag matching .
PI08639 Since the upgrade to CQ 8.0.1.2, using the LoadEntity API is failing for Validation hooks with the following error: CRMUD0082E Execution of a hook failed during the action Modify. It was the ACTION_VALIDATION hook attached to the Defect "SAMPL00000001". The reason for the failure was: CRMUD0082E Execution of a hook failed during the action Modify. It was the ACTION_VALIDATION hook attached to the Defect "SAMPL00000010". The reason for the failure was: CRMUD0011E Cannot update entity SAMPL00000001 because the action Modify is already in progress. at main::issue_Validation line 64. at main:: issue_Validation line 221.
PI08283 ClearQuest Web should allow attachments to be downloaded before they are saved.
PI06756 When using the restricted user function along with the "able to modify records" option, users are able to use the multi-record update function but it checks out a license and that license isn't released until the session is closed. This is not expected behavior. If you modify one record you see a license checkout then immediate release.
PI06756 IBM Rational ClearQuest (CQ) Web users whom are designated as 'restricted mode' users, such that they shouldn't consume a license, may consume licenses under certain intermittent circumstances.
PI06404 Under heavy load, the CQRPC hangs can cause problem when creating links between the RQM/CQ integration"
PI05752 Memory errors occur when running multiple reports in the report server.

Fix Pack 2 (8.0.1.2)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM99340 When you run a HelloWorld test script from within CQ 8.x test APIs, it returns that a subprovider is missing. This subprovider used to exist in prior versions. It fails in the check for the ClearCase subprovider...
PM98920 After doing the following 4 actions very quickly on a ClearQuest Web record: (1.) double clicking on a drop down combo box that contains a list of users (approx 8000) (2.) typing in the user name (3.) clicking on the arrow on the drop list (which consists of "Y" or "N"), and then (4.) saving the record, the drop down list changes to NULL and is saved as a invalid value.
PM98365 Cannot delete more than 1000 items from parent_child_links in ClearQuest when using Oracle as back-end because of Oracle limitation 'ORA-01795: maximum number of expressions in a list is 1000'
PM98225 In CQ v8.0.1.0 when a user runs a query and view their query results, they sometimes adjust the column widths so they can easily read their results. The user will continue to work in CQ and then later hit the query refresh button to refresh the query results, the problem is the column sizing changes they made are lost. This is a change in functionality from v7.1.2.5, as it used to keep the resizing after refresh in 7.1.2.5
PM98059 The user reported a problem with using the GSU_CQXE_OpenSubmitForm function in GlobalScriptUtility package and follow Copying the records using GSU_CQXE_OpenSubmitForm function in GlobalScriptUtility package is failing to copy where there's a line feed in the description of the source record
PM97698 ClearQuest Web 7.1.2.11 and 8.0.0.7 dbsets that contain more than one user db will show the list of db's if you logon with User ID: 1' or '1'='1 \ Password: then click Connect. Instead of an immediate error, you will get to the box to with the list of available user db's. Then click Login, it brings you back to the login box with an error: in CQ Web 7.1.2.11 Build 7.1.2.11.00_2013B.D130606 ClearQuest login of user: This login is forbidden: CRMMD1910E No LDAP domain '1' or '1'='1 ' is defined. in 8.0.0.7 Build: 8.0.0.07.00_2013B.D130611 ClearQuest login of user: This login is forbidden: CRMMD1910E No LDAP domain ?#034;1?#039; or ?#039;1?#039;=?#039;1 ?#034; is defined.
PM97571 When updating an existing query and changing a static filter value the changed filter value is not reflected in the main filter window, even after selecting other filter and/or saving.
PM97155 EmailPlus allows invalid XML-1.0 characters into a payload data
PM97154 EmailRelay will get stuck if payloads are not processed correctly, and there is no easy way to fix the issue for the customer.
PM96558 When running a prompt query on a text field and enter a value in the Values field then change the operator value the 'The current field is set to:' is not updated with the value, but the operator is updated. The issue occurs when the 'Valid Operator:' changes when a value is already entered. This issue affects ClearQuest 8.0.1 and IE (8.0 and 10). This issue doesn't exist using Firefox.
PM95723 With data push reporting and Crystal Reports, CQ queries are created and tied to the report to gather the data. Those queries can be interactive requesting dynamic query data from the user. The data pull reporting using BIRT has similiar capability such that the user can be prompted for data. However, when the prompt is for something like states or products where it is pulling the choices from a stateless record, it does not seem to be possible to select multiple values and pass it through to the data set definition.
PM95280 Error 409 when OSLC full update tries to update all fields
PM90802 IBM Rational ClearQuest (CQ) EmailRelay PostOffice mode e-mail payloads will fail to be parsed if the payload contains an email address with an apresand '?' character.
PM83616 Security on websphere profile is not taken in consideration in emailrelay configuration
PM52611 Error seen when using the GSU submit if there is too much data returned: Throw: CRMUD0089E The entity's Named Hook 'RecordScript' failed, the error message is: [CQ] ??xml version='1.0' encoding='UTF-8'???response xmlns='http://?hostname?/rational/clearquest/cqxe/1.1'??open_for m action='Submit' type='1'??save_hook?RecordScriptSave?/save_hook??cancel_hook?Rec ordScriptCancel
PM48520 Notification hook fails intermittently on GetFieldOriginalValue API call in Eclipse client only.
PM47253 Attachment package creates empty folder on FTP server when ticket is created rather than creating it when an attachment is added.
PM46755 Attachments package v. 2.0 has debug code enabled by default
PM41637 Filtering on a special characters when the Oracle database is enabled for case insensitive is not working.
PM34680 In CQ 7.1.*, you can set query limits like HARD_QUERY_LIMIT, SOFT_QUERY_LIMITT to restrict the resultset by a query. This is especially useful in web to tackle stability issues. It is recommended that customers set up query limits to prevent CMserver crashes when users run huge queries. Unfortunately, this can affect queries using the API and called in hooks, or choice-list hooks referencing users etc. There should be a way to get the full restultset that exceeds the query hard limit if explicitly requested in a hook.
PM32146 Commit hook can fail with error 'Caught An Unhandled Exception At The OLE Call Boundary - File: \bugbert.src\cqole\oadentity after upgrading to 7.1.1.x where it previously worked in 7.0.1.

Fix Pack 1 (8.0.1.1)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM37696 Problem: The number of connections to the IBM Information Center exceeded the number permitted for concurrent printing of topics.

Fix: Users can now print content from the Information Center.

PM48834 Problem: Problems can occur when attempting to use ClearQuest Web server as an OSLC provider in a load-balanced deployment.

Fix: The ClearQuest Web server is updated to fully support OSLC integrations in a load-balanced deployment. See the ClearQuest Information Center for information about configuring load-balanced ClearQuest Web systems to support OSLC integrations.

PM50106 Problem: If a ClearQuest child record has a reference field to a stateful parent record, queries run against the child record type will return the incorrect result set if the parent reference.state (dot State) is set as a displayed field. Child records whose parent reference field are null are not displayed in the query result set.

Fix: ClearQuest child records that do not have parent reference field now display in the result set. In order to receive this fix, users must upgrade their ClearQuest Databases to Feature Level 8.

PM73122 Problem: In ClearQuest Eclipse, importing values separated by a single LF (Line Feed) character into a multi-line string field results in a CR (Carriage Return) being added before the LF in all values except for the last one. This is typically the case when a multi-line string field which has a constant-list for its Choice List gets exported and imported again.

Fix: The ClearQuest Eclipse import no longer results in a CR (Carriage Return) being added before the LF (Line Feed) in all values except for the last one.

PM73234 Problem: Expanding a ClearQuest Web workspace folder can take a considerable amount of time, depending on the number of items within the folder. The performance tends to be slower when using ClearQuest Web on unix.

Fix: A ClearQuest Web enhancement between the cqrpc and CMServer layers has been added which improves workspace folder performance.

PM76261 Problem: The time zone on ClearQuest e-mail notifications (as displayed in the user's inbox) is sometimes different than the actual time zone recorded in the ClearQuest record. NOTE - This problem appears when viewing e-mail notifications on some e-mail clients like Microsoft Outlook. This problem occurs when the email notification is generated from any ClearQuest client (Web, Eclipse or native).

Fix: ClearQuest e-mail notifications now display the correct times in a user's inbox. The ICU libraries were upgraded in ClearQuest 8.X from version 3.8 to 4.8. The default datetime offset of the new libraries was changed, and ClearQuest was not properly parsing and reformatting it to be RFC #822 compliant. This has been fixed so the time zone information now displays correct for email generated by all ClearQuest clients

PM80296 Problem: When using the Crystal Reports isNull function to test for an empty ClearQuest string field, the result is inconsistent between the desktop clients and the Report Server for Crystal Reports. When running a report using the Report Server for Crystal Reports, the isNull function returns false for cases where a value of true is expected.

Fix: The ClearQuest Reporting Driver was updated to treat empty string values as nulls.

PM81596 Problem: It takes longer to log out of ClearQuest Web as a restricted user than it does as a normal user.

Fix: Logging out of ClearQuest Web now takes the same amount of time for both a restricted and a normal user.

PM85393 Problem: In the ClearQuest Windows client, queries that use an ORDER BY clause (ASC or DESC) to add items to a reference list, result in an error message that blocks the user from seeing the query result set. The error message says "A column has been specified more than once in the order by list. Columns in the order by list must be unique."

Fix: ClearQuest Windows client users are able to use a query with ORDER BY clause (ASC or DESC) to add items to a reference list. This is now consistent with the ClearQuest Web and Eclipse clients.

PM86562 Problem: ClearQuest Web on Internet Explorer may take a long time to display a workspace folder if there are many folders and queries in it.

Fix: Opening ClearQuest Web workspace folders now takes about as long using Internet Explorer as FireFox.

PM86937 Problem: Under certain circumstances when adding attachments the first time in the ClearQuest Eclipse client, the attachment will not be added to the record and any other modifications to the record will be lost.

Fix: The attachment will be added to the ClearQuest Eclipse record and other modifications will not lost, even after the first time.

PM88185 Problem: A ClearQuest Web security problem was found.

Fix: A ClearQuest Web security problem was fixed.

PM90053 Problem: ClearQuest Web security problem was found.

Fix: ClearQuest Web security problem was fixed.

PM90807 Problem: When using the count aggregate function to display fields in a query, the records are not grouped in the result set in the ClearQuest Web client.

Fix: ClearQuest Web records can be now be grouped in a result set by using the count aggregate function.

PM91868 Problem: ClearQuest Full Text Search terms with mixed letters and numbers, such as "00960964.01.t01", will not get a hit if searching for "00960964.01.t". This is caused by the current Solr 3.6.1 schema.xml analyzer setting.

Fix: The Solr 3.6.1 schema.xml was fixed so terms with mixed numbers and letters, such as "00960964.01.t01", will now get a hit when doing a ClearQuest Full Text Search on "00960964.01.t01", "00960964.01.t" or "00960964".

PM92098 Problem: Exporting records in the ClearQuest Eclipse client exports into a format which cannot be imported into Microsoft Excel when records contain data with carriage returns.

Fix: Exported records that contain carriage returns can now be viewed correctly in Microsoft Excel. A new ClearQuest Eclipse export format "ClearQuest import format (Strip CR LF)" has been added. The new format quotes fields and strips Carriage returns/line feeds, replacing the line feed with a single space.

PM92131 Problem: Executing queries with ClearQuest OSLC using the IN operator for a REFERENCE or REFERENCE_LIST field fail with a response HTTP Status 400 "com.ibm.rational.cm.rest.query.InvalidQuerySyntax" error. For example, a query for Defect records that have referenced customer records using the IN operator on the customer name: http:// /cqweb/oslc/repo/8.0.0/db/SAMPL/simpleQuery/16777224?oslc.where=cq:customer{cq:Name in ["Ethan Hunt","Jane Smith"]}

Fix: ClearQuest OSLC queries now work when using the IN operator for a REFERENCE or REFERENCE_LIST field.

PM92638 Problem: The ClearQuest global script utility package (GSU_CQXE) is throwing different errors when calling "GSU_CQXE_OpenForm" and "GSU_CQXE_OpenURL" on the ClearQuest Web Client. Calling GSU_CQXE_OpenForm results in a "NullPointerException" and calling GSU_CQXE_OpenURL results in a "Fire script alias failed" error. This is regression that was introduced in ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.7 and 8.0.1.

Fix: The API calls GSU_CQXE_OpenForm and GSU_CQXE_OpenURL now work correctly in ClearQuest Web.

PM92657 Problem: In the ClearQuest 8.0.1 Information Center, the information about configuring the IBM DB2 database is missing.

Fix: The information about configuring the IBM DB2 database has been restored to the ClearQuest 8.0.1 Information Center at http://pic.dhe.ibm.com/infocenter/cqhelp/v8m0r1/topic/com.ibm.rational.clearquest.install_upgrade.doc/topics/c_config_db2.htm.

PM93138 Problem: Under certain conditions, the ClearQuest Reporting Data Pull CM adapter driver may fail with a "java.lang.NumberFormatException" error.

Fix: The ClearQuest Reporting Data Pull CM adapter driver has been fixed to no longer throw the error.

PM93223 Problem: ClearQuest Web users encounter errors when using the rest API to pre-fill forms with lengthy field values. This can sometimes cause the ClearQuest / DOORs integration to freeze while selecting multiple requirements to submit an implementation request.

Fix: ClearQuest Web users are now able to pre-fill forms with lengthy field values using the rest API.

PM93775 UnixProblem: The ClearQuest behavior flag LICENSE_HOST_OVERRIDE can be used to explicitly set a hostname for license checkouts. It does not work on some Unix platforms including Linux.

Fix: The ClearQuest behavior flag LICENSE_HOST_OVERRIDE was made operational on UNIX

PM93910 Problem: ClearQuest Web Button hooks do not always fire on the first click when using Internet Explorer. The user sometimes needs to click on the button twice for the hook to fire. The problem does not happen when using Fire Fox.

Fix: ClearQuest Web Button hooks now fire on the first click for both Internet Explorer and Fire Fox.

PM94720 Problem: Certain characters in the 932 codepage could not be displayed correctly in the internal recordset used to run ClearQuest Crystal reports. This resulted in an inability to run reports with those characters and/or failure to display that data.

Fix: ClearQuest Crystal reports now display all fields with the problematic characters. A newer codepage containing these SJIS characters is now used by our database ODBC drivers. This codepage contains the characters that were problematic before.

PM94769 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader cannot locate and read the X button to close the ClearQuest Web welcome screen

Fix: A new keyboard access key was added that allows ClearQuest Web users to quickly navigate to the currently selected tab in the result set. A user can quickly navigate to these tabs using either of the following access keys: ALT+SHIFT+T (FireFox) or ALT+T (Internet Explorer). That will cause the focus to go to the currently selected tab. A user can then switch between tabs using the [LEFT] & [RIGHT] arrows. Once the user has navigated to the tab they would like to close, the user can simply press the DELETE button and it will close the tab.

PM94772 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader is unable to navigate to the ClearQuest Web personal queries and public queries folders.

Fix: A keyboard access key is now available that maps to the 'Personal Queries' folder in the 'Navigator' view. A keyboard user can navigate to the 'Personal Queries' folder in FireFox by pressing ALT+SHIFT+N, or ALT+N on Microsoft Internet Explorer. This will bring focus to the 'Personal Queries' folder.

PM94775 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader is unable to allow ClearQuest Web users to run queries without help from a sighted person.

Fix: A keyboard access key is now available that maps to the 'Personal Queries' folder in the 'Navigator' view. A keyboard user can navigate to the 'Personal Queries' folder in FireFox by pressing ALT+SHIFT+N, or ALT+N in Microsoft Internet Explorer. This will bring focus to the 'Personal Queries' folder. As a user navigates up and down the tree, using the arrow keys, JAWS will read the corresponding tree item. Once the user has navigated to the desired query, chart, or report, the user can press ENTER to run the query, chart, or report.

PM94776 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader is unable to navigate between the left and right ClearQuest Web pane.

Fix: The following access keys were added to improve the workspace navigation in the ClearQuest Web client: Workspace Navigation Keys (FireFox) ALT+SHIFT+L -> Performs Logout/Login ALT+SHIFT+T -> Moves focus to the selected tab in the top right section of CQ Web (i.e where the 'Welcome' & result set tabs reside) ALT+SHIFT+N -> Expands/Collapses the 'Personal Queries' folder in the 'Navigator' view ALT+SHIFT+F -> Focus goes to the 'Search' text field Workspace Navigation Keys (Internet Explorer) ALT+L -> Focus goes to the Logout/Login button ALT+T -> Focus goes to the selected tab in the top right section of CQ Web (i.e where the 'Welcome' & result set tabs reside) ALT+N -> Focus goes to the 'Personal Queries' folder in Navigator view ALT+F -> Focus goes to the 'Search' text field

PM94777 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader is unable to access the right mouse click to copy workspace items in ClearQuest Web.

Fix: The context menu will now appear in the workspace 'Navigator', 'Favorites', & 'Recent Items' views when the context menu is invoked through the keyboard using SHIFT+F10. From within the context menu, all actions that would normally appear in the context menu (i.e Copy, Rename, etc.) will be available for the user.

PM94778 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader is unable to paste to the personal and public ClearQuest Web queries folders

Fix: The context menu will now appear in the 'Navigator', 'Favorites', & 'Recent Items' views when the context menu is invoked through the keyboard using SHIFT+F10. From within the context menu, all actions that would normally appear in the context menu (i.e Copy, Paste, Rename, etc.) will be available to the user.

PM94780 Problem: The JAWS (Job Access With Speech) screen reader is unable to rename a ClearQuest Web query without sighted assistance.

Fix: The context menu will now appear in the ClearQuest Web 'Navigator', 'Favorites', & 'Recent Items' views when the context menu is invoked through the keyboard using SHIFT+F10. From within the context menu, all actions that would normally appear in the context menu (i.e Copy, Paste, Rename, etc.) will be available for use by the user.

PM95460 Problem: Symantec PGP Desktop e-mail encryption service causes problems with the Atria Location Broker Demon(ALBD) service startup during install or upgrade operations. The ALBD service is prevented from starting, locking the operation.

Fix: The IBM Rational ClearCase installer has been modified to create an interface for selectively disabling the service's final startup sequence, thus preventing PGP Desktop and other third party programs from interfering with the startup operation and causing irrecoverable lock situations.

Fix Pack 10 (8.0.0.10)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM92893 Defect in PM51132 is not completely fixed. It looks likes the reference fields are still broken. If you are setting a reference field on tab that is not displayed on the Defect submit form, it only adds the first value to the reference field and ignores the rest of the values.
PM90345 Setting the Remember User ID checkbox in the CQ Web 7.1 login page, would default the cursor to jump to the Password field. In CQ web 8 the cursor goes to the User ID field. Users inherently start typing their passwords when the form is loaded not realizing that they are typing it in cleartext in the username field. It is a security risk. The actual behavior is not consistent. It depends on browser type and version. If you cancel on login and then click Log in again multiple times, the cursor will appear alternating between Login ID and Password field.
PM88988 When a new record type, stateless or stateful, is created with the Eclipse Designer the default behavior of the system field ratl_mastership is set to READONLY. The classic Designer behaves differently, setting the behavior of ratl_mastership as OPTIONAL. For stateful record types the behavior for the submitted state is set correctly as OPTIONAL, but any other states inherit the default READONLY behavior. With this settings users are not able to change the mastership of stateless record type and stateful record types in any state except submitted. This issue affects both 7.1.x and 8.0.x (all versions)
PM66412 Users with the CQ privilege 'All Users/Groups Visible' unchecked still can see other users in the record tabs when the references to users are not in the display list of the query. Also when submitting records that have fields which are references to users he can see all other users via the choice lists of these user reference fields. The same applies for groups and is visible in all clients.
PM63880 ClearQuest domain\username misformed on refresh/timeout
PM59049 When PERL action_initialization hook for a record type with certain double-byte names has syntax errors, IBM Rational ClearQuest Designer fails to show the syntax errors in validating the schema. It returns the following error instead: ERROR : CRMCU0027E An error was detected retrieving information from the ClearQuest database.

PI10332 On the Web client the value_change hook on a ref-list fires twice. The first time GetFieldValue( $fieldname ) returns an empty list, the second time it returns an accurate list. This is happening when using blank schema, and the problem is *only on the Web*. The problem has been verified with both FireFox 25 and InternetExplorer8. Testing on the Windows native and eclipse clients did NOT exhibit this behavior - the hook fires once and GetFieldValue($fieldname ) returns the correct value, which is what we would expect on the web

PI08729 When de-replicating an IBM Rational ClearQuest (CQ) MultiSite clan, following the last rmreplica, and deactivate, the site-name should be renamed to as it would exist in a CQ database that had never been replicated. This further affects utilities that anticipate and not an actual site-name for non-replicated CQ databases. multiutil lsreplica also doesn't indicate that the remaining site is deactivated (which is confusing). Affect: This particular use case affects an environment in which the CQ clan had been deactivated and attempts were made to setup CQ Full-Text-Search (FTS) using the cqtsadmin.pl configuraiton utility. Specifically, when using the utility, the configuring was done with typical parameters --init_cq_fts followed by --setup_cq_fts. During the batch indexing phase (using cqtsdbcrawler.pl), because the environment was interpreted as non-replicated, it attempted to use for the site-name, but in fact the site still had a name after it was deactivated. This caused cqtsdbcrawler.pl to fail to find an XML tag matching .

Fix Pack 8 (8.0.0.8)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM73122 Problem: In ClearQuest Eclipse, importing values separated by a single LF (Line Feed) character into a multi-line string field results in a CR (Carriage Return) being added before the LF in all values except for the last one. This is typically the case when a multi-line string field which has a constant-list for its Choice List gets exported and imported again.

Fix: The ClearQuest Eclipse import no longer results in a CR (Carriage Return) being added before the LF (Line Feed) in all values except for the last one.

PM73234 Problem: Expanding a ClearQuest Web workspace folder can take a considerable amount of time, depending on the number of items within the folder. The performance tends to be slower when using ClearQuest Web on unix.

Fix: A ClearQuest Web enhancement between the cqrpc and CMServer layers has been added which improves workspace folder performance.

PM76261 Problem: The time zone on ClearQuest e-mail notifications (as displayed in the user's inbox) is sometimes different than the actual time zone recorded in the ClearQuest record. NOTE - This problem appears when viewing e-mail notifications on some e-mail clients like Microsoft Outlook. This problem occurs when the email notification is generated from any ClearQuest client (Web, Eclipse or native).

Fix: ClearQuest e-mail notifications now display the correct times in a user's inbox. The ICU libraries were upgraded in ClearQuest 8.X from version 3.8 to 4.8. The default datetime offset of the new libraries was changed, and ClearQuest was not properly parsing and reformatting it to be RFC #822 compliant. This has been fixed so the time zone information now displays correct for email generated by all ClearQuest clients

PM80296 Problem: When using the Crystal Reports isNull function to test for an empty ClearQuest string field, the result is inconsistent between the desktop clients and the Report Server for Crystal Reports. When running a report using the Report Server for Crystal Reports, the isNull function returns false for cases where a value of true is expected.

Fix: The ClearQuest Reporting Driver was updated to treat empty string values as nulls.

PM81596 Problem: It takes longer to log out of ClearQuest Web as a restricted user than it does as a normal user.

Fix: Logging out of ClearQuest Web now takes the same amount of time for both a restricted and a normal user.

PM85393 Problem: In the ClearQuest Windows client, queries that use an ORDER BY clause (ASC or DESC) to add items to a reference list, result in an error message that blocks the user from seeing the query result set. The error message says "A column has been specified more than once in the order by list. Columns in the order by list must be unique."

Fix: ClearQuest Windows client users are able to use a query with ORDER BY clause (ASC or DESC) to add items to a reference list. This is now consistent with the ClearQuest Web and Eclipse clients.

PM86937 Problem: Under certain circumstances when adding attachments the first time in the ClearQuest Eclipse client, the attachment will not be added to the record and any other modifications to the record will be lost.

Fix: The attachment will be added to the ClearQuest Eclipse record and other modifications will not lost, even after the first time.

PM88185 Problem: A ClearQuest Web security problem was found.

Fix: A ClearQuest Web security problem was fixed.

PM90053 Problem: ClearQuest Web security problem was found.

Fix: ClearQuest Web security problem was fixed.

PM90807 Problem: When using the count aggregate function to display fields in a query, the records are not grouped in the result set in the ClearQuest Web client.

Fix: ClearQuest Web records can be now be grouped in a result set by using the count aggregate function.

PM91868 Problem: ClearQuest Full Text Search terms with mixed letters and numbers, such as "00960964.01.t01", will not get a hit if searching for "00960964.01.t". This is caused by the current Solr 3.6.1 schema.xml analyzer setting.

Fix: The Solr 3.6.1 schema.xml was fixed so terms with mixed numbers and letters, such as "00960964.01.t01", will now get a hit when doing a ClearQuest Full Text Search on "00960964.01.t01", "00960964.01.t" or "00960964".

PM92098 Problem: Exporting records in the ClearQuest Eclipse client exports into a format which cannot be imported into Microsoft Excel when records contain data with carriage returns.

Fix: Exported records that contain carriage returns can now be viewed correctly in Microsoft Excel. A new ClearQuest Eclipse export format "ClearQuest import format (Strip CR LF)" has been added. The new format quotes fields and strips Carriage returns/line feeds, replacing the line feed with a single space.

PM92638 Problem: The ClearQuest global script utility package (GSU_CQXE) is throwing different errors when calling "GSU_CQXE_OpenForm" and "GSU_CQXE_OpenURL" on the ClearQuest Web Client. Calling GSU_CQXE_OpenForm results in a "NullPointerException" and calling GSU_CQXE_OpenURL results in a "Fire script alias failed" error. This is regression that was introduced in ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.7 and 8.0.1.

Fix: The API calls GSU_CQXE_OpenForm and GSU_CQXE_OpenURL now work correctly in ClearQuest Web.

PM93138 Problem: Under certain conditions, the ClearQuest Reporting Data Pull CM adapter driver may fail with a "java.lang.NumberFormatException" error.

Fix: The ClearQuest Reporting Data Pull CM adapter driver has been fixed to no longer throw the error.

PM93223 Problem: ClearQuest Web users encounter errors when using the rest API to pre-fill forms with lengthy field values. This can sometimes cause the ClearQuest / DOORs integration to freeze while selecting multiple requirements to submit an implementation request.

Fix: ClearQuest Web users are now able to pre-fill forms with lengthy field values using the rest API.

PM93910 Problem: ClearQuest Web Button hooks do not always fire on the first click when using Internet Explorer. The user sometimes needs to click on the button twice for the hook to fire. The problem does not happen when using Fire Fox.

Fix: ClearQuest Web Button hooks now fire on the first click for both Internet Explorer and Fire Fox.

PM94720 Problem: Certain characters in the 932 codepage could not be displayed correctly in the internal recordset used to run ClearQuest Crystal reports. This resulted in an inability to run reports with those characters and/or failure to display that data.

Fix: ClearQuest Crystal reports now display all fields with the problematic characters. A newer codepage containing these SJIS characters is now used by our database ODBC drivers. This codepage contains the characters that were problematic before.

PM95460 Problem: Symantec PGP Desktop e-mail encryption service causes problems with the Atria Location Broker Demon(ALBD) service startup during install or upgrade operations. The ALBD service is prevented from starting, locking the operation.

Fix: The IBM Rational ClearCase installer has been modified to create an interface for selectively disabling the service's final startup sequence, thus preventing PGP Desktop and other third party programs from interfering with the startup operation and causing irrecoverable lock situations.

PM15837 Problem: When browsing ClearQuest records from within CCRC on a Korean locale, CQ UCM field labels have a slighter larger font size. This sometimes leads to truncation of some label names.

Fix: On Korean locales, ClearQuest field labels now have uniform font sizes when viewed from within CCRC.

PM51777 Problem: The ClearQuest Multisite syncreplica command fails on an English OS if the export packet file name contains non-ascii characters. It will fail with a "cannot open file" error.

Fix: ClearQuest Multisite syncreplica now works with packet file names on all supported character sets.

PM87949 Problem: ClearQuest MultiSite multiutil commands will get an error message when a logical database name or family name has characters in lower case on Windows platforms.

Fix: ClearQuest MultiSite multiutil commands now work correctly on Windows no matter if the database name / family name is in lower case or upper case.

PM88253 Problem: When using Clearquest EmailRelay in SMTP Relay and PostOffice modes, e-mails are not sent if more than one user is on the TO, CC or BCC list because the wrong JavaMail API was being used.

Fix: Now e-mails are sent when more than one user is included on the TO, CC or BCC list.

PM44971 Problem: There is a Replace Value option in the ClearQuest Eclipse Client (RCP) Import Tool. Technote ">1121020: How to import null fields in a record in Rational ClearQuest Import Tool explains in more detail. The value "" (double quote double quote) does not clear reference_list fields even when the Replace value option is selected.

Fix: Users can now use "BLANK" to clear out reference_list fields when the Replace value option is selected on the ClearQuest Eclipse Client (RCP) Import tool. Technote 1121020 has been updated with this new information.

PM51842 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web user selects the Print icon, a blank white screen is shown instead of the print preview, if the record has some field values with invalid xml characters (like the arrow character).

Fix: If the field value of a record contains some invalid xml characters, they are now replaced with space. This allows ClearQuest Web users the ability to Print Preview when pressing the Print icon.

PM53058 Problem: If a ClearQuest Web user does not have permission to view a record, sometimes clicking 'Open Related Record' returns a NullPointerException error.

Fix: ClearQuest Web users that don't have permission now receive a detailed insufficient privilege exception.

PM59316 Problem: In ClearQuest Web, when adding a new entry in a list view and then pressing the "Browse" button, the workspace that is brought up does not include any modifications that were done using the CQ API (typically new queries) in the current user session.

Fix: The problem was fixed by adding a Refresh button in the ClearQuest Web "Browser" dialog.

PM60531 Problem: The ClearQuest Export tool exports history records of other stateless records with the same dbid. These records should not be imported.

Fix: The ClearQuest export tool now only exports the history records of the exported records.

PM64420 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web child record is modified on it's parent record using a utility action, a refresh is needed from the parent record for the change to be visible. Note - this only a problem with a utility action not a modify action.

Fix: ClearQuest Web child records which have been modified using a utility action are now immediately changed on the parent record. A refresh is no longer needed.

PM71739 Problem: When using the GSU_CQXE_SubmitRecord function to pop-up a form, ClearQuest Web can not handle more than one reference value in a reference list field.

Fix: Multiple reference values can now be used with the GSU_CQXE_SubmitRecord function on ClearQuest Web.

PM77116 Problem: When editing a ClearQuest query filter using the Cut or Copy action, Pasting to a new query filter will incorrectly affect the original not the new filter.

Fix: A fix to ClearQuest was made to add a new valuePane for new filter items. This now allows users to modify items using the 'cut/paste' and 'copy/paste' actions.

PM77814 Problem: The ClearQuest Full-Text Search Administrator tool (cqtsadmin.pl) does not correctly handle record type and field names in Chinese (and other non-English/double-byte characters) when using the add_record_type and remove_record_type functions.

Fix: The ClearQuest Full-Text Search (cqtsadmin.pl) script was not decoding field name correctly. This has been fixed and now works for non-English characters.

PM79532 Problem: During an installation or upgrade to ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x, the IBM Installation Manager does not set the JVM heap size value for the WebSphere Application Server profile. By default, when a new WebSphere Application Server profile is created, the JVM value is set to 256 MB. This value is too low for ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x and must be increased to 1 GB.

Fix: Install code has been changed so that the JVM heap size value for the WebSphere Application Server profile is set to 1024MB when Installation Manager is creating a new WebSphere Application Server Profile for IBM Rational ClearQuest Web.

PM80631 Problem: When you have a ClearQuest text field containing "mailto: " on the ClearQuest Windows client, you can start a mail client by clicking the text, and the to address gets filled with . This is not working in the ClearQuest Web client.

Fix: The mailto function in text fields now works the same way on the ClearQuest Web client as on the ClearQuest Windows client.

PM80778 Problem: ClearQuest licenses in a web enabled environment are generally consumed by a unique combination of userid + hostid + dbset. In the CQ Web load balanced environment, the addition of more than one potential host (server) can cause more than one license to be checked out for a given user.

Fix: The ClearQuest license code has been changed to disregard the host and dbset in which the user is performing a login in a web enabled situation. This forces the license server to reserve only one license for a given user id - regardless of the host and or dbset.

PM81433 Problem: The ClearQuest Login Stats tab in the ClearQuest Web Site Monitoring window fails to display the information for the logged in users (LoginId, Email, Phone,..) when the number of entries exceeds 100. Row 101 and successive ones show three dots ("...") instead of the actual data.

Fix: The ClearQuest Web Site Monitoring tool now shows all rows even when the number of logged in users exceeds 100.

PM83701 Problem: ClearQuest Web does not have appropriate caching options to prevent browsers from storing local copies of returned data which may be retrieved by other users who have access to the same computer.

Fix: ClearQuest Web can now be configured via a CQ Web site configuration option to prevent caching headers which might store local copies of sensitive data.

PM86523 Problem: When clicking on a URL to enter ClearQuest Web, or if entering ClearQuest Web through an additional web-browser tab, users may experience an "Error 500 java.lang.NullPointerException". If the web user is already logged in, the URLs work as they should. NOTE - this is a regression introduced in ClearQuest Web 7.1.2.10 and 8.0.0.6.

Fix: The ClearQuest Web URLs now work as they did prior to 7.1.2.10 and 8.0.0.6 even if the web user is not logged in.

PM86720 Problem: When using ClearQuest Web with a FireFox browser, scrolling through reference_list fields on a record form is very slow if you are using the mouse wheel.

Fix: Scrolling through ClearQuest Web reference_list fields using the mouse wheel is now back to a normal speed for FireFox.

PM88253 Problem: When using Clearquest EmailRelay in SMTP Relay and PostOffice modes, e-mails are not sent if more than one user is on the TO, CC or BCC list because the wrong JavaMail API was being used. 

Fix: Now e-mails are sent when more than one user is included on the TO, CC or BCC list.

PM89327 Problem: ClearQuest Perl and VB Script Hooks that call the CQEntity::FireNamedHook API will fail.

Fix: ClearQuest users can call the CQEntity::FireNamedHook API in hooks successfully again

Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM20327 Problem: When adding an entity to a reference list using a record script with the "Other" button, ClearQuest does not automatically validate the contents of the reference list right now.  Validation only occurs when saving the record.

Fix: ClearQuest now recognizes there is a new entry in the reference list and validates immediately after the change in the reference list.

PM39039 Problem: ClearQuest users are able to update schema repository connection information via the Maintenance Tool even without "superuser" privileges.

Fix: Only ClearQuest users with SuperUser privileges are now able to update the schema repository connection information in the Maintenance Tool.  If a regular ClearQuest user tries, they will get a pop-up message saying "CRMMD1240E Permission denied.  This operation can only be performed by a user with SuperUser privileges" and it fails.

PM39111 Problem: In ClearQuest Web, when using the "DieWithCustomMessage" function in a field value change hook , its web dependent field does not update when clicking "OK" on the custom message window popup.

Fix: When using the "DieWithCustomMessage" function in a ClearQuest Web field value change hook, its web dependent field can now be updated with a custom message window popup.

PM46541 Problem: When loading a template on an ALMRequest, ClearQuest Web does not show the Project field until the record is reloaded.

Fix: ClearQuest Web now shows the ALMRequest Project field successfully without the need for a record reload.

PM50299 Problem: A failed login (typo) using the ClearCase  / ClearQuest (V2) base integration on a Korean locale with CQ Web (CQCC_CQWEB_ONLY) causes a parsing error and then the login prompt no longer appears.

Fix: After a failed login using the ClearCase  / ClearQuest (V2) base integration on a Korean locale, a CQ Web login dialog now pops-up requesting the user to renter their username / password.

PM53962 Problem: ClearQuest record locks are supposed to be released when an action is committed or reverted, however, if an action initialization hook fails, the record will not be unlocked.   If the hook fails for some reason, a user is not allowed to click "Revert", because the record form is not editable.

Fix: The CQ record will no longer stay locked if the action initialization hook fails.

PM64043 Problem: ClearQuest Web is not parsing some characters (for example, Vertical Tab-VT) into valid XML when using OSLC to pull information.

Fix: ClearQuest Web now parses these characters into valid XML.

PM67902 Problem: In ClearQuest Web, the GSU_CQXE_SubmitRecord function does not work properly. None of the fields on the new cloned record are populated.

Fix: The GSU_CQXE_SubmitRecord function will now work properly on ClearQuest Web.  All the fields on the new cloned record are populated.

PM69842 Problem: ClearQuest Web does not provide any notification that a template has been saved successfully and what fields were saved.  For example:  although a CQ Web tab may be *Red (has a required field), you can actually save a template and it just saves a blank for the required field.  A confirmation is needed to say that the template has been saved and what fields it actually did save. Without any confirmation, the user can not tell that template has been successfully saved.   

Fix: ClearQuest Web now notifies the user that a template has been saved and what fields were saved.

PM72393 Problem: If there are multiple Delete actions for a record type in your schema, only the last one will show up in ClearQuest Web.

Fix: All delete actions are now visible and fully operable for ClearQuest Web.

PM76039 Problem: In ClearQuest Web 8.0.x.x, if a short string or a multi-line field has an invalid value according to a corresponding field validation hook, the tab containing the control and the control's label are not highlighted in red when the record is opened for editing.

Fix: The CleaerQuest Web tab containing the control and the control's label will be highlighted in red when the record is opened for editing.

PM76505 Problem: When the Rational MultiSite shipping server encounters a connection or other TCP/IP socket error on Microsoft Windows, an incorrect error message is printed in the shipping server logs.

Fix: Rational MultiSite shipping server now correctly logs (in the shipping server logs) connection and other TCP/IP socket errors on Microsoft Windows.

PM76509 Problem: Rational MultiSite shipping server failed to send packet file due to the "deferred behavior" introduced from MicroSoft Windows 2008 server OS. Even if with a "good" binding port, socket connection could still fail for WSAEADDRINUSE error.

Fix: MultiSite shipping server can now handle the "deferred bind on connect" behavior introduced in Microsoft Windows 2008 server OS.

PM76836 Problem: If there are nested fields in a ClearQuest Web form, such as Owner.fullname, the field won't be automatically updated if the parent field changes, such as Owner.

Fix: The nested fields are now updated automatically in ClearQuest Web.

PM77153 Problem: A security vulnerability was reported in ClearQuest Web.

Fix: A security vulnerability was fixed in ClearQuest Web.

PM77788 Problem: If there is more than one dynamic filter in a ClearQuest Web query, choosing the same operator as the previous filter, sometimes causes the operator to flip back to default rather than the one you picked.  As example: when the query has multiple dates fields with multiple dynamic filters. choosing "Less Than Or Equal To" sometimes flips it back to "Equals".

Fix: The ClearQuest Web dynamic query filter no longer switches back to the default even when you have multiple filters and choose the same operator.

PM78704 Problem: ClearQuest record type families group entities with common fields together for querying across records of different types.  If any of those common fields have database names which are different than the default value, then those queries may fail.  This is only the case when the field is used for an "in" type of sql query filter.  
For example:  if you have the field name "ucm_stream_object" which has a database field name of "ucm_stream_object_1", a query on the record type family All_UCM_Activities will fail if you filter on that field.

Fix: ClearQuest has been fixed to filter on the actual database field name instead of the visible field name as defined in the record type family.

PM79080 Problem: In ClearQuest Web, if your schema has the same field repeated on more than 1 tab, changing it's value does not update on all tabs until the record is saved/refreshed. 
For example:  if you have the same date/time field "DUE DATE" on multiple tabs, and you change it on one tab, after you go to the other tab, "DUE DATE" will still have the old value.

Fix: ClearQuest Web now immediately changes the field value on all the tabs where it appears.

PM79091 Problem: During periods of heavy usage, ClearQuest Web may experience "Out of Memory" exceptions, become unresponsive, and prevent users from logging in.  ClearQuest Web sometimes does not recover from this condition in a timely manner and often requires an administrator to manually kill the ailing cqrpc.exe process where the problem occurred.

Fix: When "Out of Memory" exceptions occur in ClearQuest Web, this condition is now detected and the ailing cqrpc.exe process is recycled.  This means CQ Web users performing operations in the bad cqrpc.exe, as well as new users, are routed to a new cqrpc.exe process.

PM80242 Problem: ClearQuest Web sometimes incorrectly collects information about lost record changes and throws an exception even when changes have not actually been lost.

Fix: A ClearQuest Web fix has been made to properly throw the 'CRVSV1100E The changes to the following resource are lost due to a server problem' exception when changes actually have been lost.

PM80764 Problem: The ClearQuest Full-Text Search Batch and Update mode record extractor fails to handle certain characters.  Here's an example of the error:
" javax.xml.stream.XMLStreamException: Character reference "" is an invalid XML character." 
You will also run into this same error if you try to upgrade an existing deployment from Solr 1.2.0 to 3.6.1 using the full-text search administrator command "--upgrade_solr_app".  NOTE - This is only a problem with CQ FTS 8.0.0.5.

Fix: The ClearQuest Full-Text Search record-extraction component was fixed to handle these characters.


Fix Pack 5 (8.0.0.5)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM33116 Problem: Both ClearQuest Designers crash during validation if a choice list's default value is invalid.  Example:  Create a short string field and make it a CHOICE_LIST.  Put the values x and y and set it to "Limit to list".  Setting the default value of the short string field to a blank space will cause a crash.

Fix: When the default value of a choice list is invalid, the designer now displays a message saying the "The hook must consist of only a single value...".

PM46858 Problem: ClearQuest performance on Unix decreases when loading schemas with many hooks.

Fix: New caching mechanisms were added to improve ClearQuest UNIX performance.

PM57371 Problem: ClearQuest Eclipse client continues to log into an old database even after it's been moved.

Fix: After a database move, ClearQuest Eclipse will log into the new moved database so data is put in the correct place.

PM60748 Problem: By default, after deploying ClearQuest Web on an IBM WebSphere Application Server, the JSESSIONID cookie path is set to the domain root /. If there are other web applications running on WebSphere Application Server that set the JSESSIONID cookie path to /, this creates a JSESSIONID conflict, which causes ClearQuest Web functions to fail.

Fix: The ClearQuest Web session id name is no longer hard coded to use JSESSIONID.  If there's a JESSIONID conflict, the ClearQuest Web session id can now be renamed.  Technote 1595387: ClearQuest Web does not function when hosting other applications on the same web application server explains an alternate workaround.

PM61242 Problem: Attachments can not be added to a ClearQuest Web record after a user session has timed out.  The record can only be saved without attachments or discarded completely.

Fix: After a ClearQuest Web user session has timed out, a relogin dialog appears and attachments can be added to a record.

PM63389 Problem: Logging into ClearQuest takes more time now than 7.0.1.x due to changes made to reading and writing database information to the registry.

Fix: Database information is now cached in memory to improve ClearQuest logon performance.

PM64420 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web child record is modified on its parent record using a utility action, a refresh is needed from the parent record for the change to be visible.  Note - this only a problem with a utility action not a modify action.

Fix: ClearQuest Web child records which have been modified using a utility action are now immediately changed on the parent record.  A refresh is no longer needed.

PM65721 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web record contains a reference list with over 1000 items, any modification on the record will cause unresponsiveness and a "CRVSV0917E The request timed out waiting for a locked resource to become free." error message.

Fix: Modifying a ClearQuest Web record with a reference list of over 1000 items now works fine.  The locking condition on the resource mentioned in the message has been eliminated so this error no longer occur.

PM66959 Problem: Under certain circumstances, if the CQ Full Text Search Admin (FTSA) tool fails early in the deployment, diagnostic logging may not occur.  Trying to use the CQ FTSA tool command-line options on a none existing FTS deployment at "--ftshome" results in following misleading error message:  "UNEXPECTED_DATA  as needed at cqtsadmin.pl line 1812"

Fix: The resource string "UNEXPECTED_DATA" has been added properly to report the true nature of the CQ FTSA issue.

PM68040 Problem: If you start using ClearQuest Full Text Search Administrator tool in a UNIX shell or a Windows command prompt which is not setup with root or administrative privileges, the ClearQuest Full Text Search Administrator tool could fail while executing command without explanation as to why.

Fix: ClearQuest Full Text Search Administrator tool now checks to make sure that the UNIX shell or the Windows command prompt is started in root or administrative privilege, if not, it will report an error.

PM71175 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web CQRPC process reaches the 'Recycle Server Lifetime Limit', it is marked for termination by the CM Server. If the CQRPC process fails to exit, it will appear as hung in the process list and will run indefinitely if not terminated manually. Processes like that can and should be terminated to prevent them from consuming unnecessary resources such as CPU or Memory.

Fix: A fix has been made to use a PERL script, called cqrpccleanup.pl, to address this issue. This script is run automatically by the CM Server periodically based on an MBean value cqrpcAbandonedProcessCleanupInterval. The script checks the PIDs of the cqprc processes that are running in CM Server and that are running on the machine itself. It terminates the processes that are not in the CM Server list and that have been up for at least 5 minutes.

PM71702 Problem: ClearQuest Web short string fields with drop-down list box controls can not be made blank when using your keyboard's backspace key rather than your mouse. If the field has been made blank and is not in the list of values, you will be prompted with warning: "The value entered is not valid".  After Clicking "OK" and "Save", the value which was deleted still exists.

Fix: Clearing ClearQuest Web short string fields in drop-down list box now has consistent behavior when using both a mouse and a keyboard.  If the field has been made blank via a backspace, clicking "Save" successfully removes the deleted value.  This makes it consistent with ClearQuest Web 7.1.2.x.

PM72417 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x user tries to add a attachment with over 50 characters in the file name, they receive an error message saying it is not allowed.  This is correct behavior but the user then can't delete the attachment from the form control because the Remove button is greyed out.

Fix: ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x users can now remove attachments with over 50 characters in the file name from an attachment form control.

PM72905 Problem: A ClearQuest security problem was identified.

Fix: The ClearQuest security problem was fixed.

PM73551 Problem: If a drop down list control field was reset via hook and then is modified, CQ Web 8.0.0.x can not recognize the modified field and treats it as unchanged.  NOTE - This issue only occurs in CQ Web 8.0.0.x.

Fix: CQ Web now correctly recognizes a modified drop down list control field if it was originally set via hook

PM74838 Problem: Date field values are not displayed in a query result set if the ClearQuest Web server is on certain non-English operating systems such as German or French.

Fix: ClearQuest Web date field values now display in query result sets on all locales.

PM74845 Problem: When a ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x user tries to add a attachment with over 50 characters in the file name, they receive an error message saying it is not allowed.  This is correct behavior but the user then can't delete the attachment from the form control because the Remove button is greyed out.

Fix: CQ Web 8.0.0.x users can now remove attachments with over 50 characters in the file name from a attachment form control.

PM75238 Problem: The IBM Installation Manager panel was not displaying the correct version for non-English operating systems.

Fix: The code has been updated to have a generic extraction of the correct version on the IBM Installation Manager panel independently of the Operating System language.

PM76855 Problem: ClearQuest Web users on some non-English locales receive a error message when requesting a date time field using a OSLC request.

Fix: When calling OSLC requests as in the above example, ClearQuest Web query result sets are correctly displayed on all locales.

PM59537 Problem: ClearCase and ClearQuest removed the original MSI packages used to install 3rdParty components, upon cleaning up the Windows MSI cache, the packages had problems to perform Installation Manager Operations.

Fix: Updated the ClearCase / ClearQuest to keep a copy of the original MSI packages inside the Install directory in case the machine's MSI cache is cleared, in this situation the MSI system will have the original MSI path and prevent problems on the Installation Manager Operations.


Fix Pack 4 (8.0.0.4)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PM23354 Problem: CC/CQ UCM integration users intermittently see more license usage than expected.  It can be as many as 1 extra license checked out per user.

Fix: The extra license check outs were caused by ClearQuest admin sessions consuming licenses when they should not be.  This has been fixed for all ClearQuest clients.

PM33122 Problem: The ClearQuest Full Text Search crawler does not release licenses between index cycles.

Fix: ClearQuest Full Text Search crawler now releases the license as soon as extraction is done and regains the license the next time the extraction starts.

PM46644 Problem: When executing a validation hook in ClearQuest Web via a button, fields that are supposed to be changed within the hook are not updated.  An example is clicking on a "Web Refresh" button to update some fields without having to save the record.  The fields are not changed.

Fix: This ClearQuest Web fix allows any fields within the validation button hook to be updated correctly.

PM51128 Problem: If the time zone of the ClearQuest Web server machine is set to certain locales such as UTC PKT, accessing a ClearQuest record through the OSLC interface results in a "ParseException: Unparseable date" error.  The error is issued when the record is accessed through an application that integrates with ClearQuest Web or through direct calls to the OSLC ClearQuest API.

Fix: The time zone setting of your ClearQuest Web Server machine will not affect access to ClearQuest records even in locales such as UTC PKT.

PM59071 Problem: ClearQuest Web list view control fields have an inconsistent sort order if the unique key field of the reference record is not displayed.  When a CQ Web record with a list view control field is first loaded it is sorted.  Refreshing the record sorts the reference list in a different order.

Fix: ClearQuest Web list view control fields now sort in a uniform way even if the unique key field of the reference record is not displayed.

PM59308 Problem: ClearQuest Web type ahead blocks user input when it's processing a search.  This may cause typed characters to be lost.  Example:  If using a field referring to "users", start typing "admin".   CQ Web will accept input only after filtering the list is complete but you can still type characters.  If the search takes a few seconds, you may have ended up typing "ain", because CQ Web blocked input while you typed "dm".  This means you have to remove the extra characters in order to refer to a valid item.

Fix: ClearQuest Web type ahead no longer blocks user input when processing a search.

PM60107 Problem: The "installutil copyuserdb" command removes the permissions that were previously set on ClearQuest Query folders.  This is only a problem with CQ Oracle databases.

Fix: The "installutil copyuserdb" command keeps the query folder permissions in tact.  They are now correct for all CQ clients and database vendors.

PM60479 Problem: When using OSLC with ClearQuest Web to query on records,  if there is a field name which has the "+" character, the return value is 0.

Fix: ClearQuest Web OSLC will now return the correct number of records even if there is a field name with the "+" character.

PM62929 Problem: ClearQuest OSLC API ignores read-only fields when updating records, even if the read-only fields are made editable (non read-only) through a hook.

Fix: ClearQuest OSLC API now allows read-only fields to be modified if they have been made editable (non read-only) through a hook.  It also throws a warning message when trying to modify read-only fields.

PM63588 Problem: When trying to submit or modify a record in ClearQuest Web, selecting a field value which has a value change hook may result in the following error message "Conflict error: Error from RPC server: PROPPATCH failed:  The field "XXX" cannot be modified because it is currently  read-only."  This error occurs when the value change hook is supposed to reset a field to it's original value and then make it read only.

Fix: ClearQuest Web no longer throws the error message.  The field value will be reset and made read only via the hook.

PM65979 Problem: When a new file element is added to a VOB using the command line (cleartool mklem) that was first added as view private file using IBM Rational ClearTeam Explorer (CTE) most of the file element context menu options such as checkout etc  are greyed out in the right click menu even after refresh(from context menu) is done on the file element. After CTE is restarted the menu options are available in the right click context menu.

Fix: The IBM Rational Clear Team Explorer code has been modified to re-fetch the relevant property of the file element when the user selects the refresh option from the right click context menu options.

PM66896 Problem: Security Bulletin: Information Disclosure: ClearQuest Web leftover scripts (CVE-2012-0744) explains the problem.

Fix: The problem described in the security bulletin is fixed.

PM67910 Problem: When running a CQPerl script on ClearQuest RedHat 64-bit, users get the error " ERROR: ld.so: object '/usr/lib/libstdc++.so.6' from LD_PRELOAD cannot be preloaded: ignored" when there is a command or system statement in the script or when back ticks are used.

Fix: ClearQuest now uses LD_PRELOAD_32 to pre-load the 32-bit c++ library.  This fixes the problem on Red Hat 64-bit operating systems.

PM68639 Problem: After configuring and deploying the Report Launcher for ClearQuest Web, non-admin users who click on the Manage Reports button receive the following error message "Could not get the Rational Report Management Server URL"

Fix: Non-admin users can now use the Manage Reports button in the ClearQuest Web Report Launcher.

PM69457 Problem: When a CQ Windows client user runs a Crystal Report with the "RATL_LocalDateTime" function, the following error is thrown:  "u2lcrratl.dll is missing".  This is not a problem with the CQ Web and Eclipse clients.

Fix: The "u2lcrratl.dll" file has been updated on the CQ Windows client.  The "RATL_LocalDateTime" function can be called correctly when running a Crystal Report.

PM69506 Problem: GSkit V8 links are broken when installing ClearQuest or ClearCase on Linux x86 after doing the following: 
  1. Install the latest version of GSkit V8
  2. Install ClearCase or ClearQuest
  3. Configure SSL with LDAP for CQWeb.
  Trying to access CQWeb using valid LDAP credentials will fail due to the broken links.

Fix: The GSkit V8 links are now integrated correctly in the Linux x86 ClearCase and ClearQuest Install Manager.  LDAP CQWeb users will no longer see failures.

PM69662 Problem: Some fields are not word wrapping as expected on ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x .  An example with the Defect Tracking schema is the Email field on the Customer record.  This is not a problem with CQ Web 7.1.2.x.

Fix: All ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x fields word wrap as expected.  The behavior is now consistent with CQ Web 7.1.2.x.

PM69692 Problem: When a CQ Web user executes an action (such as modify, resolve...) on a record but does not actually make any changes to the form , clicking the logout button results in CQ Web showing an invalid "Warning: All changes will be lost" message.  This is unnecessary because no changes were made to the record.

Fix: CQ Web now only shows the "Warning: All changes will be lost" message after clicking the logout button when changes were made to the record.

PM70087 Problem: Attempts to install ClearQuest on Microsoft Windows XP SP2 64 bit results in a warning message saying the platform is not supported.  This is incorrect because Microsoft Windows XP SP2 64 bit is a supported platform for non-server features.

Fix: The supported platforms check on ClearQuest Install Manager was fixed to prevent this warning message from showing on Microsoft Windows XP SP2 64 bit Systems.

PM70688 Problem: When configuring the Report Server for ClearQuest, the profile "reportalprofile" fails to start. The Deploy_RCQR_eWAS.py script contain spaces in the urls which prevents the associated WAS profile from starting.

Fix: CQ Install Manager was changed to handle the urls. The CQ Report Server report profile will now start correctly.

PM70791 Problem: Type ahead on CQ Web 8.0.0.x does not work when adding query field names.  Typing a letter does not highlight the field names that start with that letter.  It still stays on the first one.  This is not a problem with ClearQuest Web 7.1.2.x.

Fix: ClearQuest Web 8.0.0.x type ahead for query field names now works correctly.  This makes it consistent with ClearQuest Web 7.1.2.x.


Fix Pack 3 (8.0.0.3)
Link Date Released Status
APAR Description
PK94147 Addresses a ClearQuest issue on Window and UNIX platforms where a cached list of duplicate records can easily become stale because the information about duplicates for a ClearQuest record is not updated often enough to notice recent changes made in other sessions.
PM19201 Addresses an issue of inconsistent behavior in the ClearQuest Eclipse client running on Windows platforms where the last field selected in the ClearQuest Designer is used as the base field for an alignment operation while the first field selected is used as the base field for a size operation. The issue has been fixed so that the first field selected now acts as the base field for both an alignment operation and a size operation.
PM24688 Addresses an issue in the ClearQuest Eclipse client running on Windows XP Professional platforms where the Form Layout -> Align option behavior in the ClearQuest Designer was inconsistent with respect to the selected control that specifies other Form Layout functionality.

PM41547 Fixes a problem in the ClearQuest Web client on Windows and UNIX platforms where resizing a browser window and then dragging the child record title bar causes the child record to move out of view and blocks the entire interface until the browser is refreshed.
PM41900 Fixes the CQ EmailPlus documentation about PERL expressions in templates.
PM44970 Fixes a problem in the CQ Eclipse client where the result of importing stateless records always shows 'Success import 0' and 'Failed import 0' in the console window regardless of whether the record was imported correctly.
PM45451 Fixes a problem in the ClearQuest Eclipse client on Windows platforms where the process of importing attachments fails with no error messages if the source file for the attachments does not have a column named "Attachments".
PM45936 Fixes a defect in ClearQuest MultiSite on Windows platforms where the Modify and Change State icons are not visible in the ClearQuest Web client after submitting and saving a record. This occurs when storing an entity object in a session variable in a submit action validation hook on a ClearQuest MultiSite-enabled database.
PM46409 Fixes a problem in the ClearQuest Web client on Linux platforms where adding a combo box and a list box, on a page containing a dynamic list linked to a multiline field, produces a situation where creating a new record and trying to add multiple values to the combo box results in the combo box only taking one value and the list box only taking one value, which displays vertically.

PM49159 Addresses a ClearQuest Eclipse client issue on Windows platforms that the user encounters when creating a new record type in ClearQuest Designer where the record type name is set correctly but the database name is incorrectly set to "new1" and not to the record type name. After checking in the schema from the database, the table of the new record type is called "new1" as well. If attempting to add another record type, the new record type database name would be "new1_1" (because "new1" already exists) and subsequent ones would be "new2", "new3", and so on.
PM51132 Fixes a problem in the ClearQuest Web client on Windows platforms where some field values are not copied from a source record to a new record when using multiline fields with the "API to open a form" feature.
PM51484 Fixes a problem in ClearQuest Web where renaming a folder removes it's permissions.

PM54265 Fixes the CQ Full Text Search documentation to clarify the feature level support in MultiSite and non-MultiSite environments.
PM54784 Fixes a defect in the ClearQuest Eclipse client where source states are not saved when creating a new modify action in the ClearQuest Designer.
PM54995 Addresses a ClearQuest issue where users linking to an existing defect in ClearQuest from the Rational Quality Manager Bridge can view the non-OSLC-Package-Enabled record types during configuration or integration operations. This problem has been fixed by adding a configuration item in the cqrest.properties file which, if it is set to true, causes ClearQuest to filter out the non-OSLC-Package-Enabled record types.
PM55477 Fixes a ClearQuest OSLC problem on Windows platforms where, when trying to access a ClearQuest record or to create a new record using OSLC, users are prompted to enter a ClearQuest user name and password that will be reused within the same browser session. If the user enters incorrect credentials, a 400 error message is returned and the user does not have the opportunity to re-enter the correct credentials.

PM62740 Fixes a ClearQuest record type security vulnerability.
PM62793 Fixes a ClearQuest problem in Full-Text Search on Windows platforms where a field added to an indexed record type in ClearQuest Full-Text Search is not searchable without fieldname: before the search term.
PM62993 Fixes a ClearQuest Full-Text Search problem on Solaris platforms where the following error message occurs during update mode indexing: 'Database registry path "" does not exist'. This error can cause update mode to not function correctly and it can lead to a lock on the Lucene_index and cause Full-Text Services to crash unexpectedly.
PM63174 Fixes a problem in ClearQuest on Windows platforms where exporting records using the export wizard results in the field name order not matching the data order when the description field is selected because of a column order mismatch issue that occurs during the export process.
PM63307 Fixes a documentation problem in ClearQuest where the example documentation for ClearQuest Full-Text Search deployment has invalid syntax for Windows environments in the ClearQuest Full-Text Search Administration Guide.
PM63499 Fixes a problem when exporting records in the CQ Eclipse client where the data in the export file is listed in a different order than the column headings indicate.
PM63864 Fixes a documentation error in the second sentence of section 2.7 (EmailPlusRuleSubscription Record Type) in the "ClearQuest EmailPlus Administrators Guide.pdf".
PM64027 Fixes a ClearQuest Web client issue on Windows platforms where creating a dynamic query and adjusting the web page size on a German operating system causes the query interface label to overlap the control text. At 100% display resolution, part of the translated label "The current field is set to" is dropped down to the next line and overlaps the control text. Increasing the magnification to 105% or decreasing it to 95% of the page resolves the issue.
PM65367 Fixes a defect in the ClearQuest Web client on Windows and UNIX platforms where links on a ClearQuest Form stop working if the owner application can set the Referrer request header.
