HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions'

'New member, so please be gentle'

I have inherited a ALM test instance which is in a bit of a mess, and have been tasked with developing a set of procedures for its configuration and use.

The current user 'Groups and Permissions' seem to be a total mess.

Does anyone know of a method to export the Groups and permissions against the current roles to a usable single format (excel etc) as workingh through the GUI is very time consuming.

 Thanks in advance,

 R.

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions'

You're in luck!

I created a utility that does just this. The ALM Groups/Users Audit Utility.

The utility and instructions can be downloaded from: https://softwaresupport.hp.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/KM02225326

Cheers!

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions'

I for one am glad of that because I looked at this query last week, dug into it for a bit and concluded it was "way" too hard!

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions'

Is there a secret to the permission to view this after accessing it via passport login?  I'm receving "does not have permission" to view when accessing your link.  This is after signing in with a valid passport login.

Do you have a SAID attached?

You may have to ask @PhilTrostel for a copy..

For some reason the KB was marked "Internal Only". I've changed that credential. Give it another go.

@PhilTrostel
Thanks for this tool.
Basically this tool provides info regarding user & associated group in all or a given project.
Is there any tool which provides an extract of the permissions associated with that specific group in all modules ( management,req,test plan,testlab,defect etc)

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions'

Srihari,

I could probably alter the utility to collect the data you're requesting but its also a time thing.

What you might try in the meantime is QC Insight, a new tool we have.

Details here: https://marketplace.microfocus.com/appdelivery/content/qc-project-insight

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions'

@PashkAAYou need to login with Microsoft Focus (pka HP) Passport Login which is often an email address and different from the login used in this forum.

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions' - Support or hint?

Hi Phil,

worked perfectly until last week with our ALM 12.55 P1. I don't know exactly what changed, but when I open "ALM Groups Users.exe" I get a .NET Frameworl exception: (sorry is german).I can continue, but when I try to login, the excepation reappears and I can't login.

Do You have a hint, what it could be, what changed? .Net did I check, is from january. Is the highlighted path from your system necessary?

Re: HP-ALM export 'Groups and Permissions' - Support or hint?

Hi,

IN Control Panel  -> Add & Remove Programs or Installed Updates.

Check whether any .NET Framework Software got installed on your machine recently.

That recent updae might be the cause of this issue.
