Use pre-configured database to view RIT results with RTCP when scripts are executed from jenkins

When we execute RIT scripts using RIT/Jenkins plugin, we have to export the database connection details from the RIT project to be able to show RIT results embeded on Jenkins.

If this action is not done, the pop-up with the following error is displayed: “Could not find database descriptor "RIT_ProjectName". Please export the database connection details from the project of that name, or navigate from the main 'Results' page.”

This solution is not acceptable since it requires creating manually a new DB record for each RIT project.

Jenkins' goal is to automate test execution. This is impossible if this kind of manual action must be done beforehand.

The purpose of this RFE is to allow the RIT/Jenkins plugin to use a unique pre-recorded BDD configuration and not to require that it be published from the RIT project used for testing.

    As part of the review process, we strive to be transparent about our intentions with each enhancement suggestion. The offering team has carefully reviewed this idea and has decided that it does not fit into our current plans, so the idea will be closed. The idea will be kept in IBM's ideas repository and may still be voted on. It might be reassessed or reopened for additional feedback in the future. We value your feedback and thank you for allowing us the privilege of partnering with you in developing our products.

    Although the theme of this request is consistent with our business strategy, it is not committed to the release that is currently under development.
