Configure server options

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

If you are still using ALM Synchronizer, we recommend migrating to the more robust NextGen Synchronizer embedded in Agile Manager's configuration area.

Connect to the Synchronizer client as the admin user.

Select Tools > Server Options and set any of the following options:

General tab
Run history Enter the number of days for which you want to keep run task history. View history from a link's General tab.
ALM Settings Define the ALM version you are working with.

Adapter Settings

Modify the adapter log level to help you debug adapter errors.

Adapter logs are located the <Synchronizerinstallation>\log directory on the Synchronizer Server machine, and have a prefix of adapter_act.

Server Backup Location

The location on the server machine to which you want to save backup data.

Backup files include those created during automatic backups and those created when you export link data manually.

If you do not define this location, backups are saved to the <Synchronizerinstallation>\backup directory on the Synchronizer Server machine.

Note: If you define the backup directory to a location that is not on the Synchronizer Server machine, the user that logs in as a service must have permissions to write to the specified location.

Log settings

Select Enable advanced logging to store extended log information for each link task run.

Advanced logs are located the <Synchronizerinstallation>\log directory on the Synchronizer Server machine, and are named with the following syntax:

run_<Run ID>_link_<Link ID>.log

Tip: Identify run IDs in the Run History dialog box. Identify link IDs in the left column of the links grid.

Caution: Advanced logs can use a significant amount of disk space and are not generated by default. For details about the logs generated by default, see View task event logs.

Email tab
Email settings

Define the SMTP mail server you want to use to send notifications of link task run failures. For details about mail notifications, see Set link notification settings.

SMTP Server. The SMTP server host name

User name/Password. The authentication details for the user specified to connect to the mail server.
