Micro Focus Connect Core is a synchronization technology that provides data and relationship synch between products across the software / DevOps lifecycle. With Connect, teams can achieve tighter communication while stakeholders gain greater transparency.


Micro Focus Connect Core is a data synchronization technology that provides data and relationship synchronization between products across the software development / DevOps lifecycle. It is available in two different editions - a utility (this item - Micro Focus Connect Core) and an enterprise commercial product for purchase (Micro Focus Connect). This Marketplace page contains the Core utility for enabling synchronization. Individual connectors are available from the Micro Focus Connect Connectors marketplace page.

Micro Focus Connect Core allows you configure the information from this connector any way you like. Starting with an AutoMap of your information, you can quickly start synchronizing content across products, even splitting information up into more granular projects and teams.

Whether its sharing information with your Test team in the Tool of their choice, reporting on the progress of Requirements or teams managing their release backlog, the information can be shared across products, teams, and configurations.

Please visit our connector community.

NOTE: Micro Focus Connect Core is available at no additional charge for customers on active maintenance (for each connected Micro Focus product). When the Micro Focus product being synchronized is no longer under paid maintenance, Micro Focus Connect Core is no longer free to use. The commercial Micro Focus Connect product can be purchased to synchronize products no longer under an active maintenance agreement.
