HPE ALM Connection Dialog Box [VuGen]

This dialog box enables you to connect to an ALM project from within VuGen.

To access
Version Control > ALM > ALM Connection
Important information
  • You can connect to one version of ALM from VuGen and a different version of ALM from your browser.
  • You can connect to different versions of ALM only if one of the versions is ALM 11.00 or higher.

    Note: Before you connect to results stored on ALM through the this dialog box, it is recommended that you first connect to the ALM server through your browser. This automatically downloads the ALM client files to your computer.

  • You can configure more advanced settings, such as a proxy setting, by using the Webgate Customization tool (webgatecustomization.exe) and then sign into ALM using the HPE ALM Connection Dialog Box. The Webgate Customization tool can be found on your ALM server at the following address: http://<ALM Server>/qcbin/Apps/.
