Plug-in Documentation



AccuRev provides version control of source code. It contains features that allow developers to work independently, share code, maintain separate code branches for parallel projects and at the same time use a base stream containing the latest updates.

The AccuRev plug-in integrates IBM UrbanCode Build with AccuRev and automates populating a AccuRev workspace as part of a build process.. The plug-in provides integration properties, that define the connection between the UrbanCode Build server and AccuRev repository. For details, see Repositories.

The repository is configured based on a workflow.


The plug-in runs on any agents that the IBM UrbanCode Build server supports.

This plug-in run on all supported IBM UrbanCode Build platforms.


No special steps are required for installation. See Installing plug-ins in UrbanCode products.
