How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates HP ALM/QC and Jama

OpsHub Integration Manager integrates HP ALM/QC and Jama bi-directionally. 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 Jama automatically synchronize to HP ALM/QC and all the defects associated with the ‘requirement’ synchronize back to Jama.

Use Case: HP ALM/QC Integration with Jama

Problem statement: The product management team doesn’t have visibility into the status of development work and associated QA reports.

Solution: When Jama is integrated with HPQC, the product manager will have real-time insight into the types of defects logged by the quality control team, the priorities of these defects, and the overall progress of a requirement.

  1. The Product Manager creates a ‘business requirement’ in Jama, defines its priority as ‘Major’, and adds descriptive comments for the development and quality control team.
  2. The ‘business requirement’ synchronizes to HP ALM/QC along with the priority and description.
  3. Based on this requirement, the QA team writes a ‘test case’ and links it to the corresponding requirement.
  4. When the development team completes the requirement, the QA team runs the test case. As the test case fails, the QA team logs a failure in HP ALM/QC.
  5. The QA team adds further insight into the defect by adding a descriptive comment.
  6. In Jama, the status of the ‘business requirement’ changes to ‘failed’. The related defect also shows up under the associated ‘business requirement’.
