Set Agile Manager credentials

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.

Use the bridgeAuthentication command line tool to set the credentials used to connect to Agile Manager.

The credentials consist of a client ID and secret generated by Agile Manager. To obtain a client ID and secret, add an Integration Bridge client on the Integrations > API configuration page.

Note: If you are not a Site Administrator on your Agile Manager system, have your administrator add the Integration Bridge client and provide you with the generated client ID and secret .

Use this tool in the following cases:

  • You want to use credentials other than the ones you entered when you first installed the Integration Bridge.

  • You need to update your bridge so that it connects to Agile Manager using OAuth authentication. The Integration Bridge bridge now uses a client ID and secret to connect to Agile Manager instead of Agile Manager user credentials.
