Int4 IFTT – Simple Integration with ALM

Are you using Micro Focus ALM (formerly HP ALM/Quality Center) to manage application delivery, lifecycle and testing in your company?

We have great news for you – Int4 IFTT can be easily integrated with ALM without installing additional components or libraries. Test execution is automated using VAPI-XP test script and doesn’t require Unified Functional Testing (UFT) to be integrated with ALM.

You can leverage ALM test management capabilities and execute Int4 IFTT test cases directly from the tool. Result reporting is fully automated and you have instant access to executed test details, status and Int4 IFTT results report.

We deliver parameterized test script template which can be used to create new Tests in ALM.

When creating new Test in ALM Test Plan select VAPI-XP-TEST Type:

Test Plan ALM Int4 IFTT

Choose JavaScript as Script Language:

VAPI XP Wizard

Replace generated script template with script provided with Int4 IFTT:

Create two parameters:

  • TestCase
  • TestScenario

These parameters will be specified during execution and determine Int4 IFTT test case(s) to be run.

That’s it! You are ready to start testing Int4 IFTT test cases with ALM.

Create Test Configurations specifying Int4 IFTT Test Case or Test Scenario ID(s):

After creating Test and Test Configurations you can include them in Test Set in Test Lab module:

Overall status of each Test is visible directly on Automatic Runner dialog:
