Known issues in CollabNet TeamForge 16.3

The following issues, including any workarounds we may have, are known to exist in the TeamForge 16.3 release.


You cannot edit the "Assigned To" field of an artifact if the previous assignee's full name has an apostrophe (Example: McDonald's) in it. This is a known issue in 16.3.

As a workaround, remove the apostrophe from the previous assignee's full name. Now you are able to edit the 'Assigned To' field to re-assign the artifact to any other user. This issue will be resolved in the subsequent release.


Wiki syntax values [sf:artifactStatistics], [sf:taskStatistics], [sf:frsStatistics] and [sf:documentStatistics] have been deprecated from TeamForge 8.1 and later. For a workaround, see Why are statistics charts broken on a wiki page?

Not able to restart specific services using the "collabnet" script

Restarting specific services such as "pgsql" using the "collabnet" script is not possible. As a workaround, stop the service and start it again. For example:
Use these commands... instead of this command
  • etc/init.d/teamforge_cli_server stop
  • etc/init.d/teamforge_cli_server start
  • etc/init.d/teamforge_cli_server restart
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet stop pgsql
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet start pgsql
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet restart pgsql
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet stop tomcatcs
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet start tomcatcs
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet restart tomcatcs
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet stop binary
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet start binary
  • /etc/init.d/collabnet restart binary

Same hardware upgrade: Ignore warning messages

TeamForge installer is being optimized quite a bit. It's likely that you might come across a lot of warning messages while upgrading to TeamForge 16.3 on the same hardware (when you run the yum install teamforge command). You can safely ignore such warning messages and proceed with the upgrade.

Review Board

The Review Board installer pauses abruptly on sites using trusted certificates expecting user intervention. Press Enter to proceed with the installation/upgrade.


Jump to ID search (or in other words "Quick Search") throws an error when you search for a report with its ID.
Note: Report ID is of the form "reportxxxx", where the value for xxxx (four digit number) can be found in the URL of the report in question.
