where we can find the actual ALM domain and ALM project of a given ALM CR.

In the context of preparing migration of defects from ALM CRs to Jira Bugs, we discovered that

The ALM field Domain:Project of a CR may be empty or not consistent with the project where the CR is actuallyWe observed that this can occur when for example we imported CRs from Excel to ALM, as this field is not a required filed, if this columns is not specified in the Excel file imported, the field is empty.

And when CRs have been transferred from one project to another one, the Domain:Project is the one of the initial project, not the one of the actual project.

So we realize this field doesn’t contain a reliable information.

Re: where we can find the actual ALM domain and ALM project of a given ALM CR.


ALM out of the box does not have Change Request (CR) items - and the standard ALM types do not have the fields Domain / Project. Therefore I assume your ALM project contains a custom type CR with your own customer attributes? And it seems these fields do not have workflow (rules) how to set and modify the values.

In that case it might be necessary to correct the values in ALM or during the migration or synchronization to JIRA. If you need help doing that please describe what you want to correct.
