Synchronize your Agile Manager workspaces with your ALM projects in order to view and/or update your releases, requirements, and defects in both endpoints. Agile Manager user stories, features, and themes, are all synchronized as requirements in ALM. Workflow procedures are ignored while creating and updating synchronized data.
Unless otherwise specified, references to ALM in this Help Center apply to all currently supported versions of ALM and Quality Center. Note that some features and options may not be supported in the specific edition of ALM or Quality Center that you are using.
NextGen Synchronizer replacing ALM Synchronizer
NextGen Synchronizer is a new robust solution for synchronizing Agile Manager with ALM. NextGen Synchronizer is embedded in Agile Manager's configuration area.
If you are still using ALM Synchronizer, we recommend that you migrate your synchronization links to NextGen Synchronizer.
Existing ALM Synchronizer deployments will continue to be supported, but:
- ALM Synchronizer is no longer offered for installation
- Fields introduced or modified in Agile Manager
2.43and later may not be synchronized. This includes the feature status field, workspace custom fields, theme story points, theme owner, and more.
The table below describes the differences between the synchronization methods:
|NextGen Synchronizer||ALM Synchronizer for Agile Manager|
