CM-DA integration: CM promoteBaseline web service to generate ALF event after successful completion of DA Execution

by Matthew Ong on December 18, 2017

Enhance the Dimensions CM promoteBaseline web service to allow seamless integration with SBM, CM & DA. 

  • 1.  Product Configuration:

    a.  Dimensions CM 14.3.3

    b.  Deployment Automation 6.1.5

    2.  Background setup

    SBM invokes Dimensions CM promoteBaseline web service to promote the items to the deployment area.  When the deployment is completed, CM invokes an ALF event to trigger SBM to change state for the SBM item.

    3.  What is the issue:

    a.  Issue 1: CM 14.3.3 introduced the DA integration.  The SBM invokes the Dimensions CM promoteBaseline web service.  It triggered the Deployment Automation to execute the deployment.  However, no ALF event is generated from Dimensions CM. 

    The idea is to propose development to generate an ALF event from Dimensions CM after DA execution.

    b.  Issue 2:  DA can generate an ALF event back to SBM upon completion of the execution.  However, the CM promoteBaseline web service does not provide the DA process request id.  When SBM received the ALF event from DA, it does not know which SBM item to update.

    The idea is to propose development to return the DA process request Id in the promoteBaseline web service response
