Enable Dimensions CM requests

To use Dimensions CM requests with commits in a PulseUno Git repository, enable the integration with a Dimensions CM repository connected to PulseUno.

Prerequisite: Connect to Dimensions CM repository

Integration with external requests

Review these guidelines if you are integrating with a Dimensions CM instance that uses external requests:

  • If a Dimensions CM repository is mapped to other request providers, such as ALM Octane or Jira, you can use tasks and issues from those external providers in PulseUno.

  • If a Dimensions CM repository uses native requests and then switches to external requests, restart PulseUno to make it recognize the change.

Enable Dimensions CM as request provider

To enable a Dimensions CM connection to provide requests, you need administrator or owner permissions.

To enable Dimensions CM as a request provider:

  1. From the spaces list at the top right, select a space.

  2. On the Products page, open the Git repository in which you want to use Dimensions CM requests.
  3. In the sidebar, navigate to Settings > Integrations.

  4. On the Integrations page, in the Requests section, select the connection to a Dimensions CM repository.

  5. Select a Dimensions CM product to provide requests.

  6. Specify the branch patterns to match request labels. Enter a regular expression to extract the Dimensions CM request label from the branch name.

    PulseUno checks the expression against requests to find the matching labels. By default, PulseUno assumes that the branch name matches the Dimensions CM request label.

    Example: This expression matches typical Dimensions CM requests: PROD1_TYP1_\d+

    This expression matches typical defects from an ALM Octane request provider mapped to Dimensions CM: D\d+

    You can use groups in regular expressions. For example, to match commit messages containing the phrase Fixes D1234, where D1234 is the request label, you could use this pattern: Fixes (D\d+)

    Pull requests are automatically related to Dimensions CM requests that match the regular expression.

    To add more regular expressions, click Add .

    Note: When referencing a Dimensions CM request in a commit, place the request label in square brackets, for example, [QLARIUS_CR_44]. Using this commit pattern ensures that the PulseUno Git server recognizes CM requests.

  7. Click Save.
