Test Tool Integration

Test Tool Integration

You can integrate the HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tool with TDM. You can then copy flat file target results in TDM to a project in the integrated HP ALM server. You can copy results of subset, masking, and generation operations that have flat file targets. Use this feature to directly copy and maintain flat file results in an HP ALM server. You can then use the data to create and run test cases in HP ALM.
You can also integrate an HP ALM server that uses an HTTPS connection. TDM runs a separate job in the same workflow to copy the flat file to the HP ALM server in addition to the TDM server. You cannot export a flat file if you enable version control on the HP ALM server. You must disable version control and then run the TDM workflow.
You must run the workflow from Test Data Manager. The test tool integration job does not run when you run the workflow from the PowerCenter client.
To copy flat file results to an HP ALM server, you must configure the server information in TDM. Configure the server settings from the
Test Tool Settings
tab in the
Administrator | Preferences
view.
