What options are available for FishEye/Crucible users with ClearCase repositories?

Hi everyone.

We're looking to include a ClearCase repository within our FishEye/Crucible installation for production use. Given ClearCase integration is being dumped on April 4th, what options are available?

I'd really appreciate some help with this.

- Glenn

If you mean that you have to track code changes in line level, file level, activity, baseline or stream levels, you can use Visual Annotate or R&D Reporter tools.

Don't mind me saying this.

Make an intermediate SVN repository and make a cronjob to dump the clearcase contents (i guess an export view is needed) and do an SVN commit (do a blind svn add also). If there are no changes, SVN won't commit anyway. And bamboo polling will start a build only if there are commits. Dirty hack.

OR

The safest one, move to SVN or Git

Thanks for the idea, we've got that option if worst comes to worst. You're right, moving to another repository type would be the safest way to go, unfortunately we're locked to ClearCase in the short-to-medium term.

At the moment i've got my fingers crossed that the developer of the old ClearCase plugin decides to perform some updates.

"FishEye and Crucible 2.2 were launched yesterday and are now available for download. The big news is that in addition to Subversion, CVS and Perforce, FishEye 2.2 now officially supports Git & ClearCase!"

BUT

"On April 4th 2012, we are ending FishEye support for IBM ClearCase

To expand on the OP's assertion that Cleracse integration is being dropped:

"On April 4th 2012, we are ending FishEye support for IBM ClearCase"

https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/End+of+Support+Announcement+for+IBM+ClearCase

This was a shock to read considering the previous ClearCase support for the last 2 years.

Hi Glenn,

Our documentation says that Atlassian dropped support for ClearCase, but this does not mean that you won't be able to integrate FishEye with ClearCase. You only won't be able to obtain support from Atlassian if you face any problems.

Please see this document if you still want to add a ClearCase repository into your FishEye installation:

Thanks Felipe.

It's the support side of things that concerns me given it's our production repository.

Felipe,

The page you are pointing to (https://confluence.atlassian.com/display/FISHEYE/ClearCase) has been deleted. Would it be possible to restore it or get an updated view by Atlassian on this -unsupported- integration?

Thanks

Hi Simone,

That document was deleted from our latest documentation, because from FishEye 2.8.x onwards it is no longer possible to integrate FishEye with ClearCase.

So, the latest ClearCase documentation available is for FishEye 2.7.x:
