New ITS Connection Dialog Box

You use the New ITS Connection dialog box to specify the connection settings for your issue tracking system’s server. The fields in the dialog box vary based on the ITS you selected when creating the configuration.

Fields

Connection Settings

Protocol JIRA and ALM only: Lets you specify whether you connect to the JIRA server using the http or https protocol.
Host The name of the machine hosting your ITS server. localhost, for example.
Port The port used to connect to your ITS server.
Username The name of the AccuSync user. See Create the AccuSync User.
Password The password associated AccuSync user.
Domain

ALM only: The domain associated with the projects you want to synchronize with AccuWork.

Project ALM only: The project you want to synchronize with AccuWork.

Advanced Settings

Email suffix The domain name typically associated with email addresses for your ITS users. AccuSync appends the email suffix to the AccuWork user name when AccuWork users are created in your ITS.
JIRA Path
  • JIRA only: By default, JIRA is installed to host_name:port_number/secure/ Dashboard.jspa (http://localhost:8086/secure/Dashboard.jspa, for example). You use the JIRA Path field to specify an alternate location on the host machine; AccuSync uses the Host and Port values to build the complete URL. For example, if you installed JIRA Path in a folder called /its_jira, you would enterits_jira in the JIRA Path field. AccuSync would construct the following URL to access the JIRA server: http://localhost:8086/its_jira/secure/Dashboard.jspa.

  • Proxy Settings

    Proxy Settings Host, Port, Username, and Password fields that you need to specify only if you connect to the Internet using a proxy server.

    After you test the connection, AccuSync displays additional fields on the New ITS Connection dialog box. Again, the fields in the dialog box vary based on the ITS you selected when creating the configuration.

    Note: No fields are added to the New ITS Connection dialog box after you test the connection.
