Sample use cases

The following diagrams illustrate some sample use cases where Synchronizer is used to manage both ALM projects and Agile Manager workspaces.

Note: Releases, requirements, and defects are all synchronized in separate links.

Develop and plan in Agile Manager; test in ALM

Manage workload for both user stories and defects in Agile Manager

Develop and plan in Agile Manager; test in ALM

Releases and sprints are created and updated in Agile Manager, enabling teams to schedule work according to Agile methodologies.

Additionally, requirements are managed as user stories in Agile Manager, together with themes and features. Themes, features, and user stories are scheduled within releases and sprints.

All the entities created and managed in Agile Manager are synchronized to ALM, including releases and sprints, themes and features, and user stories. These entities are used in ALM to indicate test coverage.

Defects are created in ALM, where teams can utilize ALM's full testing features. To ensure that defects are included in team workloads, they are synchronized with Agile Manager, where they can be assigned to sprints. Developers can update the defect details in Agile Manager, and testers can see these updates in ALM.
