GitLab Integration

The integration of GitLab with Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) ensures the development team does not have to manually update their systems after successful commit against a work item. With this integration, the development team can easily track commit trends and volume from the development system itself.

GitLab – Digital.ai Agility Integration Overview

In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration brings in collective wisdom to take better decisions, faster.

Best-of-breed systems such as GitLab and Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem and make the work of the development team easier and faster. When Digital.ai Agility and GitLab are integrated within the ecosystem, it’s easier to keep a track of the commit trends and volume and therefore fulfill the compliance requirements.

How GitLab – Digital.ai Agility integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Shorten the delivery lifecycle, streamline manual processes and accelerate team velocity
  • Track commit volume, track commit trends and edits/changes to commit files in real time
  • Enforce authentic commits to make sure each commit is happening against a scheduled and open workitem
  • Automation to close workitems in Digital.ai Agility after a successful commit in GitLab

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates GitLab and Digital.ai Agility

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) and GitLab bi-directionally. It ensures that all data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All the details related to a commit can be synced to Digital.ai Agility in various ways. Following are a few examples:

  • Synchronize every commit as a separate workitem linked to the workitem against which commit happens
  • Synchronize commit details as comment to the workitem against which commit happens
  • Change workitem field like ‘close a workitem’ when commit comments contain a pre-defined identifier

Use Case: GitLab Integration with Digital.ai Agility

Problem statement: As development and code commits are happening on two different systems, development team must manually update their systems after successful commit against each work item. They will also have to manually keep a track of commit volume and commit trends.

Solution: When Digital.ai Agility (Formerly VersionOne) and GitLab are integrated, status change for a work item can be automated on the code check-in GitLab. This way, development team can also keep track of the volume of commits as well as details of each commit from the development system itself.

  1. QA team creates a ‘defect’ that synchronizes to Digital.ai Agility.
  2. The development team works on the ‘defect’ in Digital.ai Agility and commits the defect against the corresponding ‘Issue ID’ in GitLab. Once the commit is successful, the status of the ‘defect’ in Digital.ai Agility changes to ‘Resolved’.
  3. Commit Information also synchronizes to the ‘defect’ in Digital.ai Agility a comment. The comment includes information such as ‘who did the commit?’, ‘when was the commit done?’, and ‘which part of the code was committed?’.

Benefits of integration for GitLab and Digital.ai Agility users

GitLab users

  • Each commit can be traced back to its respective workitem at any given point in time from GitLab itself
  • Enforced checkpoints ensure that no mandatory steps/checks are missed while making a commit – this leads to high success rate for commits

Digital.ai Agility users

  • Complete traceability from Digital.ai Agility to source code in GitLab
  • No manual intervention required to close workitems in Digital.ai Agility after a successful commit in GitLab
  • Reduced dependency on manual communication to track the completion of a task

GitLab – Jama Integration Overview

In an Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between the cross-functional teams play a great role. While the choice of systems impacts the productivity of a team, the cross-functional collaboration brings in collective wisdom to take better decisions, faster.

Best-of-breed systems such as GitLab and Jama bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem and make the work of the product and development team easier. When Jama and GitLab integrated within the ecosystem, the teams have real-time visibility into the progress of development work & commits made by the development team.

How GitLab – Jama integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Shorten the delivery lifecycle, streamline manual processes and accelerate team velocity
  • Track commit volume, track commit trends and edits/changes to commit files in real time
  • Enforce authentic commits to make sure each commit is happening against a scheduled and open workitem

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates GitLab and Jama

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates all commit related information from GitLab to Jama. It ensures that all data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All the details related to a commit can be synced to Jama in various ways, following are a few examples:

  • Synchronize every commit as a separate workitem linked to the workitem against which commit happens

Use Case: GitLab Integration with Jama

Problem statement: Lack of commit traceability means product and development teams must manually communicate about the changes and updates for each requirement.

Solution: When Jama and GitLab are integrated, there is end-to-end visibility for a requirement from ideation stage to the commit stage.

  1. The Product Manager creates a ‘business requirement’ in Jama.
  2. The development team works on the requirement, tests it, and then commits it in GitLab against the ‘requirement id’ specified in Jama.
  3. For each commit that happens from the development team, OpsHub Integration Manager synchronizes a ‘commit entity’ linked to the specific requirement id back to Jama. Each ‘commit entity’ includes information such as ‘who did the commit?’, ‘when was the commit done?’, and ‘which part of the code was committed?’.

GitLab Jira Integration ensures complete commit traceability for all work items in the Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) ecosystem. When Jira and GitLab are integrated, notifications are automatically sent to the relevant stakeholders in project management as well as the development team when changes are made to the status of a bug or any changes are made to the code base.

Use Case: GitLab Integration with Jira

Problem statement: No control on backlogs getting committed – therefore, anyone can commit on a defect that is not even present in the active sprint.

Solution: If Jira and GitLab integrated using OpsHub Integration Manager, then OpsHub Integration Manager can put a check that user can only commit on a defect that is present in active sprint.

  1. A developer works on a ‘defect’ in Jira and runs a test case against it. The test case passes.
  2. The developer then commits against the ‘defect’ in GitLab.
  3. As the ‘defect’ against which the developer has committed is not in active sprint, when Jenkins runs a pre-scheduled test on it, the commit fails.
  4. The status of the commit synchronizes to Jira.
