Managing access to IBM® Rational® Test Automation Server

Desktop clients and third-party integrations use offline user tokens to connect to Rational® Test Automation Server.

You can configure the desktop clients and third-party integrations to access Rational® Test Automation Server by using the offline user tokens created from the server.

Offline user tokens are used in the following cases:
  • To retrieve secrets configured on the server to be used in certain tests in Rational® Integration Tester
  • To enable publishing of test results and reports from desktop clients to Rational® Test Automation Server
  • To enable the Resource Monitoring Service in Rational® Performance Tester to monitor a data source during a run on Rational® Test Automation Server
  • To enable third-party integrations.

About this task

From Rational® Test Automation Server, you can create an offline user token, copy it, and then use that token in each of the desktop clients and third-party integrations.

You can also delete all the tokens, when you no longer need access or you want to prevent access to the server.
