About the ALM Robot

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) Robot is a mass upgrade tool that streamlines and automates the ALM upgrade process, enabling a user to upgrade any number of ALM projects. Using the tool results in a shorter upgrade process and resource savings.

When a new version of ALM is released, it is necessary to upgrade all projects created in ALM to be compatible with the new version of the product. ALM project upgrade is a challenging and complicated process, especially for a large number of projects. Today, each project is upgraded separately. This is a long process that requires much time, knowledge, and resources.

ALM Robot uses existing ALM APIs to automate and streamline the upgrade process. ALM Robot automates the system validations to determine system readiness before starting the process. The tool identifies missing or incorrect information, which the user can update before the process begins, avoiding errors that cause the process to fail. The tool provides a wizard that aggregates every piece of information required for the process. The last step of the wizard is the system validation engine, which performs dozens of automated validations, such as permissions, machine availability, and ALM availability. After validating the user information, the tool upgrades the projects concurrently, considerably reducing the upgrade time and resources.

Note: ALM Robot is not officially supported. No support will be provided for this tool.

Note: ALM Robot enables you to update projects from the following versions:

  • Quality Center 10.00 to ALM 11.00 and 11.52
  • ALM 11.00 to ALM 11.52, 12.00, and 12.20
  • ALM 12.00 to 12.20
  • This tool is unavailable for ALM 12.50. To upgrade multiple projects to ALM 12.50, use ALM Robot in ALM 12.50 Patch 1.

Note: ALM Robot no longer supports cancelling the check-out status of version controlled projects.
