Edit a link's ALM endpoint

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.

You can only switch the endpoint to another ALM project before running a successful synchronization. Afterward, you can change details as needed, as long as the project remains the same.

Do one of the following:

  • To edit a specific link's endpoint: Select a link from the left-hand navigation pane or from the link summary table. In the Endpoint Settings and Favorites area, click Edit Endpoint.
  • To edit multiple endpoints: Select a non-link node in the tree, such as a workspace or bridge node. In the toolbar, select More Actions > Edit Endpoints.

In the Edit Endpoint dialog box, update the following, as needed:

Field Description

The name of the endpoint you want to edit.

Note: If you selected a specific link before opening the Edit Endpoint dialog box, you can edit only that link's endpoint.

Endpoint Display Name

Identifies this connection to ALM.

Tip: If you change the name of the endpoint, or any other endpoint properties, these changes affect all the links that use the same endpoint.


URL to the ALM deployment that hosts the project you want to synchronize with.

Use the following syntax:

Credentials Display Name

Select a predefined credentials record from the dropdown list.

These records are defined in the Endpoint Credentials Manager. For details, see Manage connection setup.

You must define ALM credentials before creating a synchronization link.

ALM/QC Domain
ALM/QC Project

The ALM domain and project you want to synchronize with.

  1. Click Authenticate next to the User Credentials Name field to retrieve values for these fields.
  2. Select the ALM domain and project names from the listed items.

When you are finished making changes, click Check Connection & Save. If the connection fails, you are prompted to modify the settings.
