Integration with HPE Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)

Eggplant enables you to incorporate Eggplant Functional into the HPE ALM tool with Eggplant Integrations for HPE ALM. This integration tool is a web application that uploads your tests and results to the HPE ALM server. You can run Eggplant Functional tests from either Eggplant Functional or HPE ALM, and the integration automatically uploads those tests and results to HPE ALM. This integration gives you the benefits of being able to store and view your tests and results in one convenient location, HPE ALM.

Below is a video demonstration of Eggplant Functional integrated with HPE ALM, followed by a diagram of how Eggplant Integrations for HPE ALM works. For more information about the integration, see Installing and Setting Up the Eggplant Integrations for HPE ALM, which also provides links to installation and configuration information for Eggplant Integrations for HPE ALM.
