In this part of the tutorial we will configure a Continuum Project to receive change and then setup a change source to send the change into Continuum.
Create a Continuum Project
In the Continuum application, on the right hand menu choose
Flow > Manage Projects.
Add New (on the left), name it something appropriate, such as the name of the repository you will be associating the project with. Give it a description if desired. Click
On the project edit page, on the
Details tab, select a type of
Source. Selecting a value in this drop down will save automatically and cause the
Source tab to appear.
Next, click on the
Versions tab. Add a version number that corresponds to the code in the repository you will be linking to. Or, just enter "1" to get started with. Click
Now click on the
Source tab. For
Changes From, select the type from the list (specifics on these selections to follow). Next to the
Use as Group selection, make sure
Source Branch is selected.
Get a Continuum API Key
Now that we have a Project defined that can receive changes, we need to configure the source of those changes to send them in to the project.
Before we do this, you need to get a Continuum API key for your user account. In production environments we recommend that you create a dedicated API user in Continuum and use their API key for this purpose. However for tutorial purposes, use the Administrator account.
In the Continuum application, upper right menu select
My Account. On the resulting popup, highlight the API Token and copy it to your clipboard. Paste it to a file to be used later. Also make note of the Continuum server address.
After you have completed the instructions for the specific SCM, continue with the next step Getting Work Items.
