Configure link properties

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.

Link properties include all information about the link. Some main properties are displayed for all links in a sortable grid, and additional properties are displayed for a specific link in a series of tabs.

Open a link from the main grid or the navigation tree on the left to view or edit link properties. Tabs differ for each link, depending on whether you are synchronizing releases, defects, or user stories in the selected link.

Click Refresh or select Link > Refresh to refresh the data displayed in the grid or the link details tabs.


Once a record in one endpoint is mapped to a record in the other endpoint, it is always synchronized if there is new data, regardless of whether the record still matches the link's filter.

Therefore, before you start synchronizing, it is highly recommended that you read the topics that describe the various types of configurations available and the guidelines for specific types of synchronizations.

See Plan before you begin for details.

What do you want to do?

Note: Before you can run synchronizations tasks on a link, you must run integrity checks and enable the link.
