Enable or disable a link

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.

Each synchronization link can be in one of the following states: Unvalidated, Disabled, and Enabled.

Select a box to jump to more details about each state.

State Description

The link's configuration has not been verified. You cannot run tasks for the link.

A link's state begins at Unvalidated, and also returns to Unvalidated if you modify the link configuration.

Change an Unvalidated link status to Disabled by running an integrity check.


An integrity check has verified the link's configuration, but you cannot run tasks on the link.

A link's state changes from Unvalidated to Disabled after you successfully run an integrity check, or if you manually disable it. For details, see Enable or disable a link.


The link's configuration has been validated, and you can run tasks on the link.

You must manually change a link's state from Disabled to Enabled. For details, see Enable or disable a link.

For details about integrity checks, see Run an integrity check.

Enable or disable a link

  1. In the links grid or navigation tree, select the link you want to enable or disable.

    • Click Enable Link or select Link > Enable.
    • Click the Disable Link or select Link > Disable.
