Guidelines for releases and sprints

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.

Synchronize releases to manage, view, and analyze release data in both Agile Manager and ALM. When you synchronize a release, all related Agile Manager sprints are synchronized with cycles in ALM.

Synchronized data includes:

  • Releases: Names, start and end dates, descriptions, and attachments
  • Sprints/cycles: Names, start and end dates

Caution: Agile Manager does not support custom release fields. If you have custom release fields that are mandatory in ALM, synchronize release data only from ALM to Agile Manager, and not from Agile Manager to ALM.
