Version Control Considerations

You can upload requirements or tests from Microsoft Excel to a version control enabled project in ALM.

Consider the following when uploading to a version control enabled project:

  • When you upload a new requirement or test, it is created in ALM, with a checked in status.

  • When you upload an existing requirement or test that is checked in, it is automatically checked out and then checked in during upload. ALM adds a comment to the version history specifying that the requirement or test was updated by upload from Excel.

  • If you upload an existing requirement or test that is checked out by the same user that you use to upload the data, the data is uploaded. If the requirement or test is checked out by another user, the upload fails and an error message is displayed.

For more information on version control, refer to the Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management User Guide.
