Reporting in ALM Octane

As you work, you may want to prepare reports using ALM Octane data. These reports enable different people to view relevant information and perform analysis.

Create dashboard views

In the ALM Octane dashboard you add widgets to perform release and product quality analysis. Configure the necessary graphs and layout. Then, save the configuration as a private or public favorite.

Filter and export items

In each ALM Octane module, create filters to display the relevant items.

Once you have set the filter, save the filter as a favorite for yourself, your team, or as a public favorite.

To share this information, in the toolbar, click the Export to Excel button and export the displayed items to an Excel file. In addition, for certain Dashboard graphs, click the menu button and select Export report to view the items highlighted in the graph.

For details on filtering, see Filter items.

Get items using the REST API

Use the ALM Octane REST API to retrieve information about Backlog items, tests, and test suites.

ALM Octane sends the data on these items to your API client and you extract this data as necessary using your tool.
