Edit requirement type mapping

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.

When you create a link, you can map an ALM requirement type to each of the Agile Manager types: user story, feature, and theme.

In the navigation tree, requirement link nodes contain sub nodes for each mapped requirement type. Each sub node displays the names of the mapped Agile Manager - ALM requirement types. (Expand the pane to view the full names.)


Click Edit Link to enable changes, and Save Link to save your changes.

  • The hierarchy of the mapped types in the ALM requirement tree must match the Theme > Feature > User Story hierarchy in Agile Manager. For details, see Modify in ALM.

  • You must always run an integrity check after modifying a link's configuration. We also recommend running a simulation to prevent errors occurring in the actual synchronization. For details, see Run synchronizations.

What do you want to do?

Remove a mapped requirement type

Right-click the sub node for the requirement type and select Remove Requirement Type.

Available only before you run the first successful synchronization for the link.

Map an additional requirement type

Right-click the node for the requirement link and select Add Requirement Type.

You can map requirement types to user stories, features, or themes, if they are not already mapped.
