View an item's history

You can view history for many ALM Octane items, including the requirement backlog, epics, features, user stories, defects, tests, test suites, test runs, test suite runs, releases, and teams.

Click the History tab to see the history for the item:

Date Date of each set of changes. The newest changes are at the top.

The name of the user that made the changes.

  • If an API made the changes, the authenticated user when the change was made.

  • If a business rule made the changes, the user that ran the rule.

  • On-premise: If the site admin made the changes, @System User, which is the default. (Your site may have renamed the site admin user.)

Set of changes

Set of changes made at the same time.

Expand / collapse the group to see the changes.

Note: SaaS: If the creation time in History differs from the Creation time field in the Details tab, this is because the Creation time field represents the actual creation time of the entity, even if it was not created in ALM Octane. For example, if the entity was created in ALM, and then synchronized with ALM Octane a week later, the Creation time displays the original date, one week earlier. History displays the date it was created in ALM Octane, meaning the synchronization date.
