SCM agents

The agent is a name for applications related to appropriate SCM systems required for PUSH mechanisms. The agent is a set of scripts or proprietary applications installed on a SCM server configured for listening on a SCM system. When you commit changes to a configured repository and branch, the agent checks the policies and pushes the change set to the Agile Manager server if the commit is allowed.

For more details on working with SCM agents, see Edit the Change Detection settings.
