How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Micro Focus ALM and Modern Requirements4DevOps
OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Modern Requirements4DevOps and Micro Focus ALM (Formerly known as Micro Focus ALM / QC and Micro Focus ALM Octane) 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 Modern Requirements4DevOps automatically synchronize to Micro Focus ALM and all the defects associated with the ‘requirement’ synchronize back to Modern Requirements4DevOps.

Use Case: Modern Requirements4DevOps integration with Micro Focus ALM
Problem statement: The product management team doesn’t have insight into the quality of work from the development team.
Solution: When Modern Requirements4DevOps is integrated with Micro Focus ALM (Formerly known as Micro Focus ALM / QC and Micro Focus ALM Octane), 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 quality of work.
- The Product Manager creates a ‘user story’ in Modern Requirements4DevOps, defines its priority as ‘High’, and adds descriptive comments for the development and quality control team.
- The ‘user story’ synchronizes to Micro Focus ALM along with the priority and description.
- Based on this user story, the quality control team writes a ‘test case’ and links it to the corresponding user story.
- When the development team completes the work on the user story, the quality control team runs the defined test case and as the test case fails, logs a failure in Micro Focus ALM. The quality control adds further insight into the defect by adding descriptive comment.
- In Modern Requirements4DevOps, the status of the ‘user story’ changes to ‘failed’. The related defect also shows up under this ‘user story’.
