Automatic Workspace Provisioning with HPE ALI

If your HPE QC / ALM or HPE Agile Manager (AGM) server has ALI 1.1 or higher installed, you can automatically create queries and check out source code for a release. ALI allows you to define links from releases in HPE QC / ALM to projects stored in an SCM repository. Once ALI is configured, the HPE QC / ALM connector can use these links to automatically check out the projects associated with a chosen release (supports SVN only). The HPE QC / ALM Connector can also automatically create queries for the release and add the release plan to your task list (see Task Based Planner for information about the task based planning tools). With ALI 2.x or higher, you can also automatically connect to build plans.
