Overview for developers
ALM Octane's open integration lets you connect to any testing, management, Ops framework and CI system.
ALM Octane is an entity-relationship application. Using the ALM Octane REST API, developers can retrieve and perform CRUD (create, read, update, delete) operations on the entities that are available in the ALM Octane graphical user interface. For details, see The REST API.
ALM Octane provides a built-in client that lets you make API calls from within the ALM Octane UI. For details about how to use the interactive API client, see Interactive API client.
|SDKs||You can also work with ALM Octane SDKs, instead of working directly with the REST API. For details, see ALM Octane SDKs.|
|OData for developers||You can also work with ALM Octane using the OData (Open Data Protocol) OASIS standard. For details, see OData for developers.|
|Entity Relations Explorer||
In the ALM Octane Help menu , click Entity Relations Explorer. This provides you with a graphical interface which shows you the relations between entities, helping you create API calls and OData reports.
For example, if you want to create an OData report on feature quality you can use this to see which entities are relevant, and what are the relations between them.
Note that you can use presets which provide out-of-the-box sets of related entities, or enter your own entities in the From and To fields. You can drag nodes to change the layout, and hover over an entity to see only that entity's relations.
