Making sure CLM Report Builder has an LQE data source using configurations

If Jira administrators have notified you they require both Global Configurations and Jazz Reporting Service or IBM Rational Engineering Lifecycle Manager (RELM) services, there is a final task you need to perform before completing your configuration: making sure Report Builder (RB) has an LQE data source supporting configurations, otherwise RB users won't be able to build reports based on a given configuration.

Official RB documentation says RB should get this configuration-aware data source (called LQE scoped by a configuration) automatically since the moment the first DNG or RQM project is Configuration Management enabled; however, if by some reason this data source is not available, you need to enable it on your own.

To check whether LQE scoped by a configuration data source is available:

  1. In a browser window, open the RB Setup page at https://server:port/rs/setup.
  2. In the Connect to data source area, expand the Select a default data source combo.

If LQE scoped by a configuration data source is listed, there is nothing else to do. Otherwise:

  1. Click on the Connect to data source label within the area the Select a default data source combo is.
  2. LQE data sources will be updated, expand the Select a default data source combo again.

This time, LQE scoped by a configuration must be listed. This is the data source RB users need to use when like to build reports based on a configuration.
