Disable Status Synchronization and Enable Status Field Mapping

You can disable the PPM defect workflow driven synchronization between PPM request status and ALM entity status by setting the server configuration parameter REQUEST_LINK_ALM_ENTITY_STATUS to false from the Administration Console. As a result, the Status field is available in the QC/ALM Entity Fields list in PPM for defect status mapping purpose, allowing you to view the real time status of an ALM entity in PPM.

This feature applies to PPM integration with ALM 11.00 or later.

To disable status synchronization and configure the Status field mapping for a selected integration configuration,
