Rational ClearQuest Report Exporter

Downloadable files


Abstract

The IBM Rational ClearQuest Report Exporter is a command line tool used to migrate report files from the Report Server for ClearQuest repository.

Download Description

The IBM Rational ClearQuest Report Exporter is a command line tool used to extract all report files from the Report Server for ClearQuest repository and save the files to the local file system. The folder structure stored in the repository is also replicated on the file system. After the export is complete, the Report Launcher for ClearQuest can be installed and configured to launch the reports on the server.

The download now includes scripts that parameterize ClearQuest credential fields for BIRT reports that are already saved on the file system.

Installation Instructions

After downloading the IBM Rational ClearQuest Report Exporter archive, follow these instructions to install the archive. The instructions assume that you are logged on to the server machine where the Report Server for ClearQuest is installed.

1. Copy the reportExporter_<id>.zip archive to the following directory:

Windows:
C:\Program Files\IBM\RationalSDLC\ClearQuest\RCQR

Linux:
/opt/rational/clearquest/RCQR

Note: If the Report Server for ClearQuest was removed from the target system, you may still be able to export previously saved report design files from a backed up version of the report repository. Copy the IBM Rational ClearQuest Report Exporter archive to a temporary directory, and then proceed to step 2. See the Frequently asked questions section of the Report Exporter ReadMe for help exporting reports from a backed up repository database.

2. From a command prompt, navigate to the archive directory path, and then extract the archive contents using the following command:

Windows:
"%RATIONAL_COMMON%/infozip/unzip" reportExporter_<id>.zip

Note: The unzip program used in the previous command is not installed with all IBM Rational ClearQuest features. If the program is not on your file system, use an alternative archive extraction program to store the archive contents on the file system.

Linux:
unzip reportExporter_<id>.zip


After extracting the archive contents, consult the Readme.html file in the /reportExporter directory for usage instructions.
