Setting up ClearCase

If you use ClearCase® for source control management, you need to do some preliminary tasks to set up a typical ClearCase installation.

Before you begin

Before you can create a HCL OneTest™ UI project and add it to ClearCase, you must set up ClearCase on a shared server.


  1. Install ClearCase on a shared server. For information, see your ClearCase documentation.
  2. Set up ClearCase on a Windows or UNIX Server to use the HCL OneTest UI ClearCase integration features.

    For information about setting up a Windows server, see Setting up ClearCase on a Windows Server. For information about setting up a UNIX server, see Setting Up ClearCase on a UNIX Server.


    If you set up a ClearCase server and ClearCase client on the same system, you need to do some additional configuration. For information, see the Rational ClearCase Administrator's Guide

  3. Install ClearCase client on the local system where you installed HCL OneTest UI.
  4. Create a VOB, if necessary. For information, see the ClearCase Help.

    You can skip this step if your administrator creates a VOB for you.

  5. Create a view to access your test assets.

    Ask your ClearCase administrator for the options to select when you create a view. You can also find information in the Rational ClearCase Administrator's Guide.

    Create the appropriate view for the ClearCase software that you are using. You can create dynamic and snapshot views for ClearCase.

    1. In the ClearCase Explorer, click the Toolbox tab.
    2. Click Base ClearCase.
    3. Click Create View.
    4. Complete the View Creation Wizard.
    5. Click Finish.
