Example of mapping field values

ALM Octane Synchronizer enables you to map specific field values in one endpoint to specific values for the corresponding field in the other endpoint. A good example of when you might need to do this is when mapping defect phases.

ALM Octane and ALM each have different lists of defect phases or statuses, and even different numbers of available statuses.

  • The ALM Octane Phase field has the following values: New, Opened, Fixed, Proposed Closed, Closed, Deferred, Duplicate, Rejected
  • By default, the ALM Status field has the following values for defects: New, Open, Fixed,Reopen, Closed, Rejected.

Because these are standard fields, ALM Octane Synchronizer provides a default mapping for these values, shown in the table below.

You can modify the mapping as needed for your link.
