Shared WorkspaceOpen in a New Window


I am new here.  Any suggestion of other subscriptions are greatly appreciated.  I am new to AGM and would like troll this one and others to increase my understanding of AGM and the intergration with ALM.

Now to my question: Shared Workspace

I went to Vegas and heard that shared workspace is coming to AGM.  It is my understanding that this workspace sits above all of the worspaces.  It could be used for reporting, queries, etc. that would include the data from all of the workspaces.

Change mail addressOpen in a New Window


Due to some internal changes inside HPE Belgium, some of us here received a new mail address (still an HPE mail address, but a different one). So now I would like to update my Agile Manager account and replace my old HPE address with my new HPE address.

But I have the problem that this isn't possible or supported from the Agile Manager website itself. Or I can't find that option? I can find the form to change my name, password etcetera, but not my mail address? Which is probably because the mail address is also the login username.

I asked my account administrator to change this, which sent my request forward, and they forwarded it again and again. In the end, I guess I'm now in touch with the right people. But they aren't sure if the mail address will not result in any weird problems. For example losing my history on my current account?

Is there anyone with experience in changing of mails in Agile Manager?
How did you manage to do this? Did you have any problems afterwards with your new account? Was there any information lost (issues, tickets...) in the process?

Any help is appreciated.

Kind Regards

Rest API helpOpen in a New Window


I have gone through all of the online API documentation I can find as well as spent a fair amount of time in the Interactive help in AGM. I have been tasked with integrating AGM with one of our existing dashboards to assist our managers.

I am able to get almost all of the information I need out of the releases and backlog_items apis but I am currently stuck trying to figure out how to get information about sprints. I can relate sprints and items in the backlog_items api but unforunately on our dashboard I can only identify the sprints by their id, which is not very readable by our managers as they need to manually keep a map of what ids map to what sprints. Can someone help me Identify an api that will allow me to extract the following information:

    1. sprint id
    2. sprint name
    3. sprint start date
    4. sprint end date

Thanks in advanced for your assistance!


ALI Dev Bridge - Host on its own server?Open in a New Window



We are in the final stages of purchasing AGM on SaaS. It is my intention to use the ALI Dev Bridge to connect it to on-prem installations of QC Enterprise and Subversion.


As far as the installation location of the ALI Dev Bridge goes, are there any recommendations? I had an ALI Dev bridge installed on an on-prem test environment for QC Enterprise which then pointed to a trial of AGM SaaS but an external person had told me that they generally recommend the ALI Dev Bridge is hosted on its own server.


I thought creating a new on-prem virtual server solely for ALI Dev Bridge might be a bit of overkill as we generally only have around 70 concurrent users on QC Enterprise and AGM wise, we will start off with 20 licenses.


Any thoughts are greatly appreciated.

Build Server - Authentication is happening but for specific usersOpen in a New Window


We are facing a strange issue with Build Server configuration in "Build Management".


We have setup Jenkins server with LDAP authentication. When configuring ALI AGM is accepting username and passwords selectively. Generally speaking all users are able to login to Jenkins using there NT login credentials but in AGM only some users' NT login creadentials are able being accepted by AGM. Even admin login credentials are not being accepted.


Please see attached image for a visual on the specific issue.


Any help would be great.
