Are you a user of Polarion ALM? Are you looking for solutions to your problems and are curious to exchange experiences with experts like you? This year’s Polarion Autumn Conference offers you presentations and experience reports from users for users. This year’s conference focuses on “DevOps in adapting, deploying and using Polarion”.
From 13:30 – 14:20, Dr Janine Hofmann, QM/RA at BECOM AG and Sven Wittorf, Managing Director of Medsoto GmbH will speak on the topic of “Parallel use of Azure DevOps and Polarion — ensuring end-to-end traceability to test results”: Azure DevOps supports software development and offers all functionalities to fully map testing as well. However, the tool has weaknesses when it comes to exporting test results, especially when human-readable, traceable and long-term archivable documentation has to be generated in a regulated environment. The same applies to tracing the tests to requirements. Polarion ALM has clear advantages in these points, which is why many companies use both tools. In this article we present a project in which a seamless integration of the two tools was implemented up to the synchronisation of test runs and test results. We will first look at how the process requirements were mapped in the respective tools and what this means for the connection of the two tools. Finally, we show the solution that was created and report on the experience we have gained so far in this project.
