You must configure and deploy the ALM Projects process app with SBM Composer.

For more depth and context related to the following SBM procedures, see the Serena Business Manager SBM Composer Guide.

The specifics of this procedure vary depending on whether you are implementing Requirements Manager alone or along with Development Manager. Be sure to follow only the steps appropriate to your scenario, as noted below.

Configuring and deploying ALM Projects:

  1. Log in to SBM Composer and open the ALM Projects process app in the repository.

    If prompted, choose to Overwrite the version in local cache with the version from the repository.

  2. Set the value of serviceUser and serviceUserPassword:

    1. In the All Items tree, select Event without Reply under ALM Projects | Orchestration Links.

    2. In the Event without Reply tab, find the section: Additional data to send with event.

    3. Set the values of serviceUser and serviceUserPassword to match those of the user you created for Create a Service User.

      Ensure that designMode = false.
