DCO - HP Agile Manager integration
Is it possible to extend DCO so that requirements/specifications etc can also be saved in HP Agile Manager (AGM) via HP'sREST APIs? we use HP AGM to store the user stories which then get synchronized with HP ALM for test case management?
Is the reverse integration possible i.e document user stories in HP AGM first but use DCO APIs (if any) to save to requirements/specifications?
This is a duplicate post that Tom answered on the PDN last week - https://pdn.pega.com/forums/implementation-methodology/extending-dco-integrate-hp-agile-manager. Quoting Tom here: "Yes, you can build integrations to/from DCO assets. For example, we support product management functionality on an application (PMF–DCO integration) by configuring project tracking (e.g., connection URLs) as a system setting. However, we do not ship anything to support automated integration of requirements and specifications to/from non-Pega products. You can also use the OOTB Excel import/export functionality to manually integrate requirements and specifications."
It's true that there is no out of the box integration between PMF and DCO these days, but the SOAP APIs still exist if you'd like to use them as a starting point for building integration between Pega and HP Agile Manager. See pxCreateORUpdateRequirements and pxCreateORUpdateSpecifications. These APIs, like PMF-rule-check-in integration, rely on the system setting Tom refers to.
