- CQWeb must be installed on the server (installed as part of standard installation).
- Customization and support for additional modules may require Tasktop services.

Known Issues and Limitations for the IBM ClearQuest connector:
- Mastership is not supported.
- Requesting property options fails due to invalid property stored server side.

- Suppression of sections (and fields contained therein) is not available.
- Fields with unicode characters occasionally cause request failures.
- Service discovery fails without proper error message if credentials are invalid.

Possible Future Enhancements
- Support radio button attribute.
- Support OSLC v2 responses for next ClearQuest and RTC versions.
- Implement custom query page based on cached types.
- Store attributeSchema options for valid new types in configuration.
- Use change request history to derive completion date.
