Subversion – Rally Software – Jenkins 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 helps the teams get complete context of the business requirements.
Best-of-breed systems such as Rally Software, Jenkins, and Subversion bring rich functionalities to the ecosystem. When Subversion is integrated with Rally Software and Jenkins, all stakeholders have real-time visibility into the commits made by the development team. It is also easier to enforce authentic commits against each work item and access the changes/edits made to the commit files from Rally Software itself.
How Subversion – Rally Software – Jenkins integration is beneficial for an enterprise
- 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
- Eliminate manual effort to close Rally Software workitem by automating the state transition on Subversion commit
With Subversion + Rally Software + Jenkins integration, enterprises can:
How OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Subversion, Rally Software, and Jenkins
OpsHub Integration Manager integrates Subversion, Rally Software, and Jenkins 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 the details related to a commit made against a work-item in Rally Software can be tracked from Rally Software itself.
Popularly synchronized entities
Use Case: Subversion integration with Rally Software and Jenkins
Problem statement: After the commit is done in the version control system, someone must manually trigger the build.
- A developer works on a ‘defect’ in Rally Software and runs a test case against it. The test case passes.
- The developer then commits against the ‘defect’ in Subversion.
- The build is then triggered automatically. After successful completion of build, the ‘commit entity’ linked to the specific defect id synchronizes to Rally Software.
Benefits of integration for Subversion and Rally Software users
- Each commit can be traced back to its respective workitem at any given point in time from Subversion itself
- Enforced checkpoints ensure that no mandatory steps/checks are missed while making a commit – this leads to high success rate for commits
Rally Software Users
- Traceability for business requirements throughout the ALM tool chain
- Direct visibility into customer issues and their priorities
- Visibility into the volume, quality of commits, and commit trends in real-time
