Alerting on Changes
You can instruct ALM to create alerts automatically and send emails to notify those responsible when certain changes occur in your project that may impact the application lifecycle management process. You can also add your own follow-up alerts.
To generate automatic notification alerts, your ALM project administrator must activate alert rules in Project Customization. Alert rules are based on associations you make in ALM between requirements, tests, and defects. When an entity in your project changes, ALM alerts any associated entities that may be impacted by the change. The alerts can be seen by all users. ALM also notifies the person responsible for the entity at the time of the change of any associated entities that may be impacted by the change.
ALM also enables you to add your own follow-up flag to a specific requirement, test, test instance, or defect to remind you to follow up on an issue. When the follow-up date arrives, ALM sends you an email reminder.
