Define AccuRev User

When Enterprise Sync synchronizes files, it performs actions, such as adds and updates, as the correct user. For example:

  • User AAA in Endevor is mapped to user aaa in AccuRev.
  • If Endevor user AAA adds file FOO.CBL in Endevor, Enterprise Sync will attempt the addition of FOO.CBL in AccuRev as aaa.

The same is true for the opposite direction (AccuRev to Endevor). For this reason, it is important to follow the procedures in this section to properly create and manage your users for all of your systems.

  1. Define an AccuRev user that will be used later during the synchronization process. This user must have a password defined (not optional).
    Tip: You should define another user, named triggeruser with password triggeruser used in the Perl script to trigger an on-demand synchronization process. Although you could use the same user as defined above, we recommend using another user within the trigger because this has advantages when debugging the synchronization process.
  2. Create one AccuRev user for each Endevor user.

    For each Endevor user (mainframe userid) who is updating elements in Endevor which are relevant for the synchronization process it is strongly recommended to define a corresponding AccuRev user.

    If you don't do this you can still use Enterprise Sync for synchronizing Endevor elements with AccuRev, but you will not see in AccuRev which file changes a specific mainframe user has done in Endevor. This means that the AccuRev Annotate function would contain less specific information.

    Following rules apply for defining this user:

    • No password is required.
    • Any valid AccuRev user name can be used. The mapping to the corresponding mainframe user is done later when configuring Enterprise Sync.
Tip: We recommend defining at least one user group in AccuRev for all these users. This will allow you to easily prevent the complete group from updating streams which are managed by the synchronization process. But don't add the synchronization user and the trigger user to this group.
