Analyze development in your SCM system

If your CI server is set up to work with a Source Control Management (SCM) system, ALM Octane can help you track committed changes, branches, and pull requests that are related to your backlog items.

The Development tab includes the following sections:

Commits

ALM Octane pipelines display the commits associated with each run of the pipeline.

You can associate a commit with specific backlog items (user stories, quality stories, or defects), and track committed changes and their affect on release and build quality. For examples, see Use cases for tracking commits.

For details on how to work with commits in ALM Octane, see Track changes committed to your Source Control Management system.

Branches

ALM Octane enables you to track branches in your SCM system via Jenkins, and get details on their impact on release and build quality.

For example, you can see details on branches in the context of a feature and its user stories, and whether it was merged to the master branch.

For details, see Track branches in your SCM system.

Pull requests

If your Jenkins server works with a Source Control Management (SCM) system using pull requests, ALM Octane can help you track pull requests that are related to your backlog items.

For example, if QA wants to verify that a feature is complete, they can check that all pull requests were merged and that there are no open pull requests.

For details, see Track pull requests in your SCM system.
