Integration with HP Application Lifecycle Management (ALM)

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

Note: You can also run eggPlant Functional scripts in HP ALM without the eggIntegration for HP ALM. However, the test results are not automatically uploaded to HP ALM. See Other HP ALM Integration Methods for information about using HP ALM to run scripts.

Below is a video demonstration of eggPlant Functional integrated with HP ALM, followed by a diagram of how eggIntegration for HP ALM works. For more information about the integration, see Integrating eggPlant Functional with HP ALM using eggIntegration for HP ALM, which also provides links to installation and configuration information for eggIntegration for HP ALM.

    • By running eggPlant Functional and starting a test run.
  2. eggPlant Functional runs the test on the system under test (SUT).
  3. eggPlant Functional uploads the test results to eggIntegration for HP ALM using the HTTP protocol.
  4. eggIntegration for HP ALM uploads the test results to the HP ALM server via HP ALM's Open Test Architecture (OTA) API.
