Synchronization of Defects between Sharepoint and ALM. Possible?

Hi,

 

I am currently studying the possibility of raising defects from Sharepoint and synchronize it to Defect module in ALM 11. 

Wondering if any of you have any experience on this? Is this actually feasible? 

 

In my organization, sharepoint is a more centralize application where you can find the latest documents, project pipeline, calendar, etc. Thus, came out with this ... 

 

Pls assist. Thx. 

 

 

Regards,

Jimmy

REST API is a good choice for this purpose. Once raising a defect in Sharepoint, sending a REST request to ALM server and create a defect in ALM project as well to make them sync.

Re: Synchronization of Defects between Sharepoint and ALM. Possible?

Hi Jimmy,

 

I would simply have your SharePoint admin create a page which displays a report from a query to quality centers database.

 

SELECT * FROM BUG

  

You can then decide to query all ALM projects or the individual project to the individual SharePoint site. Simple reports, graphs, requests from Quality Center / ALM can easily be imported and extracted from ALM to SharePoint.

 

If you are looking for a seamless process integration from Microsoft SharePoint and ALM, I would integrate SharePoint to TFS to ALM. The following should help:

 

SharePoint to Microsoft Team Foundation Server

ALM to Microsoft Team Foundation Server

I hope this helps,

Thanks for the suggestion. 

 

REST API is something new to me, I've experience in OTA API only...
Just tried on some of the REST API example in the net, was quite amazed on its simplicity. 

Now, the problem is triggering the REST API upon a record update in Sharepoint. 

 

Just talk to my sharepoint admin, she advised Sharepoint out-of-the box, can trigger email / internal site job, but triggering external job may need customization. 

 

So, I am still exploring first before proceeding... anyway, thanks for the suggestion... it helps to a good start. 🙂

Hi Jimmy,

 

She may also want to use Microsoft InfoPath with SharePoint. Just another way to help illustrate the information you are pulling from QC / ALM.

 

Best regards,
