Create domains

This section describes how to create domains, view and edit the details, and delete domains.

Overview of domain

Projects are grouped by domain. A domain contains a group of related projects, and assists you to organize and manage a large number of projects. Each domain contains a Projects folder and a Template Projects folder to organize your projects and template projects.

Note: Some functionality in Site Administration is limited per edition. For example, ALM template projects are not available to Quality Center Enterprise Edition. For more information about ALM editions and their functionality, see ALM editions.
