HP ALM/QC Integration with CA Agile Central (Rally)

HPQC Integration

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 helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements. Best-of-breed systems such as HP ALM/QC and RALLY bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem. Integration of HP ALM/QC with RALLY ensures that the development and QA teams are on the same page when it comes to delivery timelines and have complete visibility into each other’s tasks.

HP ALM/QC CA Agile Central Integration Overview

The integration of HP ALM/QC and RALLY helps in bringing the product development and Quality Assurance (QA) team on the same page. As both the teams have visibility into each other’s task and complete context of customer expectations, the quality of product is better, and the delivery cycle is shorter.

How HPQC – CA Agile Central integration is beneficial for an enterprise

  • Access to QA plans and defects in real time
  • Real-time updates on the status of a story, its estimated time of delivery, and any risks that might delay the impending release
  • Complete context of the customer requirement and visibility into codes written by the development team & test cases
    written by QA team
  • Coordinate on the delivery timelines seamlessly with concurrent updates on changes

With HP ALM/QC + CA Agile Central (RALLY) integration, enterprises can:

How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates HP ALM/QC and RALLY

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates HP ALM/QC and RALLY in a bidirectional manner. It ensures that all historical and current data is available to each user, in that user’s preferred system, with full context, in real-time. All ‘requirements’ from RALLY automatically synchronize to HP ALM/QC where they are broken down to ‘stories’. The completion of the story and the status of test results against it automatically synchronizes to RALLY.

Use Case: HP ALM/QC Integration with CA Agile Central (Rally)

Problem statement: The development team creates sprints, and requirements in RALLY – which is the development system and replicate the same in HP ALM/QC – which is used by the QA team. The defects are created in HP ALM/QC and then replicated in RALLY. Manual replication of data takes a lot of time and effort.

Solution: When RALLY and HP ALM/QC are integrated, there will not be any duplication of efforts and the data between both the systems will synchronize in real time.

  1. The development team, then, creates ‘sprint’ in RALLY with basic attributes, which synchronizes to HPQC as a ‘cycle’.
  2. The development team then creates ‘User Story’ in the already created sprint in RALLY. The ‘requirements’ sync to HPQC with traceability of cycle and release.
  3. The developer then works on the ‘User Story’ and updates the status of the ‘User Story’ to ‘Completed’ in RALLY, which again synchronizes to status of the ‘requirement’ in HPQC.
  4. The QA team, then runs a quality test and finds a ‘defect’. They log the defect in HPQC, which synchronizes to the ‘User Story’ in RALLY.
