ALM integrations overview
To extend ALM capabilities, ALM offers integration solutions with other Micro Focus products and third-party products. This topic lists the tools that ALM integrates with.
Micro Focus Connect
When used with Micro Focus Connect, connectors provide synchronization of assets like Stories, Requirements, and Tasks across Micro Focus products (for example, ALM and ALM Octane) and third-party products such as Atlassian Jira, Atlassian Confluence, CA Agile, SAP Solution Manager, and Azure DevOps.
Testing tool integrations
ALM incorporates tests and results from various sources into the overall product and release data.
Store and access tests, components, application areas, and resource files in an ALM project, when UFT One is connected to ALM.
Run your UFT Developer tests from ALM.
Run tests of your mobile applications directly from ALM. These tests access the mobile devices and applications from your UFT Mobile server and post the test results in ALM.
|ALM Test Runs Injection for ALM Octane||
Run tests in ALM and automatically inject test sets and test runs from ALM to ALM Octane.
LoadRunner Analysis works together with ALM. ALM provides an efficient method for storing and retrieving scenario and analysis results. You can store results in an ALM project and organize them into unique groups.
|Quality of Things (QoT)||
On-premises users can use QoT to download planned manual runs and suite runs, run them offline, and upload test results to ALM.
Run ALM manual tests in Sprinter.
See Configure Sprinter.
Store your Service Virtualization projects as test resources in ALM. This can facilitate the use of the virtual services by other users, or by testing tools.
The integration with ALM is provided as part of the Application Automation Tools plugin.
For a list of plugins that must be installed on the Jenkins server to enable ALM integration, see Jenkins integrations.
ALM introduced a post-build action for the Micro Focus Application Automation Tools plugin (short for plugin): Upload test result to ALM using field mapping. This post-build action allows you to upload test results from an XML file to ALM. The test results can come from tests running in any frameworks or tools, not limited to JUnit, NUnit, or TestNG. After the upload, the plugin will update or create tests, test sets, test instances, and test runs of corresponding types in ALM. See Integrate with external tests.
Integrations with Commercial Off the Shelf software (COTs)
ALM integrates with the following COTs:
|Test management for Jira||
Enable Jira users to continue planning and working in Jira, with immediate visibility into the quality processes being managed in ALM. This plugin helps Jira users understand test coverage and pass/fail status, while providing QA with full visibility and alignment to the development process being managed in Jira.
Upload requirements, tests, and defects from Microsoft Excel directly to ALM.
Export requirement data or test plan data from a Microsoft Word document directly to the ALM Requirements module or Test Plan module.
Upload requirements, tests, and defects from Google Sheets directly to ALM.
See Google Sheets add-on.
Integration with project management tools
ALM integrates with the following management tools:
|Project and Portfolio Management (PPM)||
Integrate PPM requests with ALM defects or requirements. Integrate PPM projects or tasks with ALM releases.
Integration with collaborative tools
ALM integrates with the following collaborative tools:
Send instant messages to users working on ALM entities.
Integration with AutoPass License Server (APLS)
The AutoPass License Server (APLS) helps you organize and manage ALM licenses, by providing better visibility and control over license consumption. This section describes how to install the license file and use the ALM AutoPass License Server.
Additional integrations using REST API
Expand your integrations to applications of your choice by using ALM's REST API.
