Use Case: Micro Focus ALM Integration with Jama Connect
Problem statement: The Product Management team doesn’t have visibility into the status of development work and associated QA reports.
Solution: When Jama Connect is integrated with Micro Focus ALM, 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.
- The Product Manager creates a ‘business requirement’ in Jama Connect, defines its priority as ‘Major’, and adds descriptive comments for the development and quality control team.
- The ‘business requirement’ synchronizes to Micro Focus ALM along with the priority and description.
- Based on this requirement, the QA team writes a ‘test case’ and links it to the corresponding requirement.
- 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 Micro Focus ALM.
- The QA team adds further insight into the defect by adding a descriptive comment.
- In Jama Connect, the status of the ‘business requirement’ changes to ‘failed’. The related defect also shows up under the associated ‘business requirement’.
