Site Administration

ALM Site Administration enables both on-premises and SaaS admin users to create and maintain projects, users, servers, site connections, license usage, and server parameters. It also provides a set of tools for admin users to run activities for multiple projects in parallel.

Note: Starting from ALM 16.0.1, the web interface for Site Administration is available for both on-premises and SaaS environments. It replaces the previous Site Administration and SaaS add-on. For details about the legacy Site Administration, see Site Administration (legacy version).
