Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) tools help development team stakeholders communicate and keep track of development work, such as features, defects, and test cases. Integrating SD Elements with your ALM tool allows your development team to track and update the status of security tasks using the ALM environment they are already familiar with.
To enhance security for your ALM integration with SD Elements, create a client-side certificate at the global connection level. These certificates are stored securely within SD Elements.
Integration with an ALM requires two configurations:
A system connector must be created for each ALM tool, such as JIRA and CA Agile Central.
A project connection is set up at the project level, and is tied to an established system connector.
