Version control considerations
When you export data from Microsoft Word to a version control enabled project in ALM, consider the following:
When you export a new requirement or test, it is created in ALM, with a checked in status.
When you export an existing requirement or test that is checked in, it is automatically checked out during export. ALM adds a comment to the version history specifying that the requirement or test was updated by export from Word.
When you export an existing requirement or test that is checked out by you, the data is exported. If the requirement or test is checked out by another user, the export fails and an error message is displayed.
For more information on version control, refer to the Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management User Guide.
