Registering an AccuRev Server

Note: This section is for system administrators only.

For security reasons, the GitCentric bridge accepts commands only from IP addresses that it recognizes. If you add an AccuRev Server that has multiple IP addresses (for example, if the server has multiple Ethernet cards), you must register each IP address. In this case, you should perform GitCentric operations only against one of these servers entries, typically one where you have specified a host name rather than an IP address.

To register an AccuRev Server:

  1. Log in to GitCentric as described above in Log In to GitCentric.
  2. Click the Administration button and then click the AccuRev Servers menu. The Servers page appears. See Administration for more information.

  3. Click the Add button. A panel appears to allow you to register the AccuRev Server.
  4. The AccuRev Server and Port fields are relatively self-explanatory, but the AccuRev CLI Path may need careful reading:
    AccuRev Server
    The host name or IP address of the AccuRev Server you wish to associate with one or more repos, or the IP address for an AccuRev Server with multiple IP addresses. (The name of the server you first logged in to GitCentric with, see Log In to GitCentric, is automatically added to the GitCentric database.)

    If you specify localhost, this indicates an AccuRev Server on the GitCentric host, not necessarily the machine where you are running your browser.

    This is typically 5050 for mostAccuRev Servers, but the administrator may have changed it to something different.
    AccuRev CLI Path
    This is the path to the AccuRev Client executable on the GitCentric server that should be used to communicate with a particular AccuRev Server. For example:

    For more information, see CLI Path Setting.

  5. Click the Save button. GitCentric refreshes the Servers table with the server you just added.
