If you are evaluating PureCM we recommend you first watch the online demonstration.

The administration tasks are covered in this Administrator Guide and the daily developer tasks are covered in the PureCM User Guide.

The PureCM Server will be installed with an 'Example' repository which contains an example project. The user 'admin' will be created with the password supplied during the server installation (or blank on Linux and OSX). The users 'LeadDeveloper1', 'Developer1' and 'Developer2' are also created with the password 'secret'.

After installing the PureCM Client and Server you will first need to register the server as described in the section called “Register a Server”. You will then want to create a new repository as described in the section called “Creating a Repository”.

If you are migrating from Subversion, Visual SourceSafe, Perforce or CVS you can import your data as described in the section called “Import a Repository”. Otherwise you can import the files as described in the section called “Adding Files & Folders”.

Setting up the file permissions (who can read, edit which files) is described in Chapter 9, File Permissions.

To specify who can perform which actions in PureCM (e.g. who can create/delete repositories) you need to create PolicySets for the relevant group. This is described in Chapter 8, Policy Administration.
