New ALM VC Alignment Tool

We have a new version of the ALM Version Control Alignment utility.

The previous version would effect all VC items regardless of their VC status or only effect items which are checked out.

This newer version allows us to effect a single entity type. Simply specify the entity and type in it's ID. Only that item will have its VC data aligned and its status checked-in.

You can download the utility and the documentation from here: https://softwaresupport.hp.com/group/softwaresupport/search-result/-/facetsearch/document/KM01810473

Re: New ALM VC Alignment Tool

@PhilTrostel , Hi Phil, 

I totally understand this tool was built long back. But, now MF has ALM 15 with SSO supported. Any plan on enhancing this tool to support SSO authentication mechanism?

Re: New ALM VC Alignment Tool

No plans for SSO. As an alternative can you use with the API key functionality? See: https://admhelp.microfocus.com/alm/en/15.00/online_help/Content/Admin/api_keys_overview.htm?Highlight=api%20key

Re: New ALM VC Alignment Tool

@PhilTrostel There is a reason why it even does Not work with API. 

That's cause ALM 15 SSO Enabled authentication only works with "LoginWithApiKey" in SA and "InitConnectionWithApiKey" in Client.

Re: New ALM VC Alignment Tool

Perhaps two radio objects on the gui, one for standard login like we have currently, the second radio to use the API key login. Thoughts?

Re: New ALM VC Alignment Tool

Would be nice, if we have a VC tool compatible with ALM 15 SSO enabled.

I'll be adding API Key functionality to the utility. The API Key feature is in ALM 12.60 and higher.

Re: New ALM VC Alignment Tool

Thanks much, Phil!

This is a great tool. Waiting for it. So, I can use in ALM 15 SSO enabled instance.
