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 Connect 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 Connect bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem and make the work of the product and development team easier. When Jama Connect and GitLab are 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 Connect 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 Connect

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates all commit related information from GitLab to Jama Connect. 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 Connect in various ways, following are a few examples:

Use Case: GitLab Integration with Jama Connect

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 Connect.
  2. The development team works on the requirement, tests it, and then commits it in GitLab against the ‘requirement id’ specified in Jama Connect.
  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 Connect. 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 Overview

In the multi-tool ecosystem, the choice of systems and the collaboration between cross-functional teams play an important role. While the choice of systems impacts a team’s productivity, cross-functional collaboration enables teams to make better decisions faster.

Best-of-breed systems such as GitLab and Jira integration leverages the overall functionality of the ecosystem. Moreover, it makes the development team’s work easier and faster. With GitLab and Jira integration, it’s easier to keep track of the commit trends and meet the compliance requirements at the same time. Additionally, it reduces the dependency on manual communication to update cross-functional teams.

How GitLab – Jira integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Shortens the delivery lifecycle, streamlines manual processes, and improves team’s performance
  • Track commit volume, commit trends and changes to commit files in real-time
  • Authenticates commits to make sure each commit is happening against a scheduled and open work item

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates GitLab and Jira

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Jira and GitLab bi-directionally. As a result, all data is available to the users, in their preferred systems, with full context, in real-time. The project management team can track all the details related to a commit made against a work item in GitLab from Jira itself. OIM syncs the commit details to Jira in various ways:

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

The development team using GitLab can also use advanced features such as the Issue Board feature to streamline all issues coming in from Jira.

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: OpsHub Integration Manager integration for GitLab and Jira ensures that the user can only commit on a defect present in the 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. The status of the commit synchronizes to jira.
