Example of mapping field values: ALM Octane Phase and ALM or JIRA Status

ALM Octane Synchronizer lets you map specific field values in one endpoint to specific values for the corresponding field in the other endpoint. A good example of when you might need to do this is when mapping defect phases.

ALM Octane and ALM or JIRA have different defect phase or status options.

  • The ALM Octane Phase field has the following values: New, Opened, Fixed, Proposed Closed, Closed, Deferred, Duplicate, Rejected

  • By default, the ALM Status field has the following values for defects: New, Open, Fixed,Reopen, Closed, Rejected.

  • By default, the JIRA Status field has the following values for defects: To Do, In Progress, Done, Closed.

Because these are standard fields, ALM Octane Synchronizer provides a default mapping for these values, shown in the table below.

You can modify the mapping as needed for your link.
