Set up Digital Lab integration

You can configure ALM for running tests of your mobile applications directly from ALM. These tests access the mobile devices and applications from your Digital Lab server and post the test results in ALM.

Note: When working with the Digital Lab extension from ALM, the ALM server needs to align with the Digital Lab server time.

Set site parameters for Digital Lab

Open Site Administration > Configuration tab, and define the following parameters for the integration with Digital Lab.



MOBILE_CENTER_SERVER_HOST Enter the Digital Lab server IP address or FQDN (fully qualified domain name).
MOBILE_CENTER_SERVER_PORT Enter the port number of the Digital Lab server.
MOBILE_CENTER_SSL_ENABLED If Digital Lab uses an SSL connection (starting with https:), set this parameter to "Y". If SSL is not in use, set it to “N”.

If the communication between the ALM server and Digital Lab is enabled after authentication by a Single Sign-On (SSO) token, enter the appropriate value.


  • The same value must be set in Digital Lab (Administration > Settings > General > Single Sign On Init string). For more details, see the Digital Lab Help.

  • Digital Lab's multi-project early access feature. If you are using the multi-project feature, the same value must be set in Digital Lab > Project Management > Global Settings > General > Single Sign On Init string.

For details about configuring site parameters, see Set configuration parameters.
