  1. Set ALM Configuration Parameters for Mobile Center

    In the Site Configuration tab, define the following configuration parameters:

    Parameter

    Description

    MOBILE_CENTER_SERVER_HOST Enter the Mobile Center server IP address or FQDN (fully qualified domain name).
    MOBILE_CENTER_SERVER_PORT Enter the port number of the Mobile Center server.
    MOBILE_CENTER_SSL_ENABLED If Mobile Center uses an SSL connection (starting with https:), set this parameter to "Y". If SSL is not in use, set it to “N”.
    COMMUNICATION_SECURITY_PASSPHRASE

    If the communication between the ALM server and Mobile Center is enabled after authentication by a Single Sign-On (SSO) token, enter the appropriate value.

    Note: The same value must be set in Mobile Center (Administration > Settings > General > Single Sign On Init string). For more details, see the Mobile Center Help.

    Mobile Center's multi-project early access feature: If you are using the multi-project feature, the same value must be set in Mobile Center > Project Management > Global Settings > General > Single Sign On Init string.

  1. Set email addresses for authorized users

    2. In the User Details tab, make sure to define an email address for each user. The email address must match the email address defined in Mobile Center(Administration > Users).

      For more details on setting users in Site Administration, see Adding a New User.

      For more details on setting users in Mobile Center, see the Mobile Center Help.

  1. Enable the Mobile Center extension

    Create a project and enable the "ALM Mobile Center Extension". For more details, see Creating Projects and Enabling Extensions for a Project.

  1. Customizing a Mobile Center enabled project (optional)

    You can customize the settings of a Mobile Center enabled project by overriding the configuration parameter values defined in the Site Configuration tab. For example, you may need to set a project with a server IP address that is different than your other projects.

    You customize you project using the Mobile Center Configuration page in Project Customization. For more details, see Configuring a Mobile Center Enabled Project.
