CI server integration flow

The following flow describes how to collect information from your CI server and use it in ValueEdge to measure your release and product quality and to follow your build progress.


ValueEdge integrates with your CI/CD processes, enabling you to:

  • Collect data from your CI server.
  • Connect the CI data to the application modules and backlog items defined in ValueEdge.
  • Reflect the product quality based on the automated test run results in ValueEdge's dashboards and grids.

Step 1: Collect data from your CI server

Install and configure the Application Automation Tools plugin or the Application Automation Tools Jenkins plugin on your CI server, and create pipelines in ValueEdge.

ValueEdge pipelines collect build and test run results, as well as SCM data and code coverage reports from your CI server. For more detail on what you can do with pipelines, see Pipelines.

Alternatively, use the Test Result Collection Tools to send your automated test run results to ValueEdge. For details, see Push results to ValueEdge.

Based on the collected test run results, ValueEdge creates automated test and test run entities. For details, see Create automated tests.

Step 2: Connect the CI data to ValueEdge entities

Assign tests to application modules, backlog items, and ValueEdge users. You can assign items manually or set up rules to automatically assign automated tests to specific application modules and test owners. For details on application modules and the backlog tree, see Build the application module tree and Build the backlog.

The automated tests results are then incorporated into your product and release quality reports.

You can then use these results to analyze the quality of your product or release in ValueEdge in dashboards and grids.

Note: We also recommend associating user stories and defects with features and application modules. The association of SCM commits with features and application modules is made via the user story or defect mentioned in a commit's message.

Step 3: View integrated data in ValueEdge

After you create, configure, and run pipelines, ValueEdge reflects your build, product, and release quality based on the collected information.

What can I do? Where

View graphs and charts that reflect your product and release quality based on automated test run results.

Use pre-defined widgets from ValueEdge's widget gallery, or design your own.

In ValueEdge's Dashboard module, and in Overview tabs in each module of ValueEdge.

Study your pipeline results, including code changes and failures they may be related to.

If available, you can also see code coverage reports and newly discovered security vulnerabilities.

In ValueEdge's Pipelines module.
