Using ALM Entities

This section describes the request types, workflows, portlets, reports, and special commands (the "entities") provided in ALM content bundle to facilitate implementation of ITIL processes. Some of these entities are used by the integrations with other Micro Focus products.

Several ALM entities that are used only for integrations of PPM with Micro FocusQuality Center or its new version Application Lifecycle Management are described in Integrating PPM Requests with QC/ALM Defects or Requirements .
