Any ideas about PPM and Quality Center bi-directional update ?
I'm trying to find out if it's possible to integrate PPM and Quality Center for bi-directional data flow ?
For eg. say I want to trigger some work-flow task in PPM, when a defect state changes (in its life-cycle) in QC ? Like this there could be many QA life-cycle activities that happen in QC, which would be useful to integrate with the over-all testing project work-flow in PPM.
I'm aware of CM4QC (Center Mgmt for QC) and MAC for PPM & QC integration and I'm not quite positive if these (ie.CM4QC & MAC) components support bi-directional flow in a way it's extensible to suite our needs.
If anybody has any thoughts, ideas, I'd appreciate if you can share.
Re: Any ideas about PPM and Quality Center bi-directional update ?
I had seen the other posting (and in fact, I had responded to it) and my understanding is, CM4QC supports some data flow from QC to PPM, but it's not triggered by actions that happen in QC. Rather I believe it's initiated from PPM, which in turn talks to QC using the available interfaces.
Reg MAC, I'm not too sure if it supports what I'm looking for...but I'd take a closer look at it.
btw, is it possible to invoke PPM web services from QC to achieve this ? (probably that's what MAC already does...)
