How to change crucible 3.7.4 DB connection without starting the fisheye service?


I want to create a test system for Crucible (currently 3.7.4, it will be the base to migrate to the latest version!) from an existing production system using MS SQL Server as the external database without doing export/import the data from/to the db.

Just copying the application to a new machine and backup/restore the db data using MS SQL Studio.

The only step I'm missing is how to tweak the db connection to the new DB w/o starting the Fisheye service having it accessing the original db first to switch the connection from the Admin form.

Any hint?

Dear @Harald Mueller,

there should be a config.xml file that carries the db connection details, isn't it?

So long


We had that in for version 3.1.1, but after migration 3.7.4 it's no more in the config.xml file. I did not find any documentation that if I put the tag in again it will preceed the setting already existing in the system. I'm wondering where the system gets the setting at all now.

Dear @Harald Mueller,

I have access to a Fisheye version 4.2.1, not below. I'll have a look and report back ...

So long


Sorry! I've to apologize to bother you with such a silly thing.

Due to the automatic change on adding the repositories there obviously came in

a long row of blank lines making me thing the config.xml has ended, but on the very

bottom of the document I finally found the database connection entry.

You're absolutely right. The connection is in the config.xml file!!!
