Duplicate a link

Note: This topic is relevant for NextGen Synchronizer only. For details about the ALM Synchronizer, see ALM Synchronizer for Agile Manager or search using the ALM Synchronizer filter.

Duplicate a link when you want to make a copy of the link, retaining the same field mapping and rules, but connecting to a different ALM project.

  1. In the navigation tree on the left, right-click the link you want to duplicate, and select Duplicate link.

    Tip: You cannot duplicate a link while it is in edit mode. Save any changes or click Cancel Edit if Duplicate link is disabled.

  2. Navigate through the wizard as you would if you were creating a new link. For details, see Create a synchronization link.

    If you want to also duplicate mappings for user-defined fields and for user-defined requirement types (if you are duplicating a requirement link), select the Copy all ... or Copy user-defined field mapping option on the Rules or Favorites wizard page.

    Caution: We recommend duplicating mappings for user-defined fields and requirement types only if your ALM projects share the same linked template project, and therefore share user-defined fields and requirement types.

    If your ALM projects are not linked to the same template, selecting this option may cause mapping errors. For details about ALM shared fields and linked templates, see the ALM Help Center.

    If you do not copy user-defined field and requirement type mappings:

    • You will need to map these from scratch in the new link.
    • Mappings for system fields, and mappings to requirement types that are available out-of-the box in ALM , are automatically copied.
  3. Click Finish to create the link.
