What's New in Helix ALM 2017.1?
TestTrack is now Helix ALM.
TestTrack has joined the Perforce product family, with a new name and product logo: Helix ALM.
Improved integration with Helix Versioning Engine
The Helix Versioning Engine integration now has more functionality, more flexibility, and better performance. When working in Helix ALM, you can:
- Add Helix Versioning Engine as a source control provider. See Adding Helix Versioning Engine source control providers.
- Attach changelists to items. See Attaching source control changelists to items.
- View changelists in Helix Swarm
You can also attach changelists to Helix ALM items by including the item tag in comments when submitting changelists from Helix VCS clients.
View Helix ALM items that issues are attached to in JIRA
If you use the JIRA integration to attach issues to Helix ALM items, you can now view the items an issue is attached to in JIRA. This saves time switching between applications as you work. For example, when a tester is working with a JIRA issue, they can quickly see Helix ALM test runs it is attached to. See Working with Helix ALM items in JIRA.
Before users can view Helix ALM items in JIRA, an administrator needs to configure the Helix ALM for JIRA add-on, which is available in the Atlassian Marketplace.
Simplified source control integration configuration
Configuring integration with source control applications is more streamlined and flexible. User source control settings are now configured per project instead of for all projects.
Copy item number
You can now copy the number of an issue, requirement, requirement document, test case, or test run to the clipboard. For example, this can be helpful when writing an email to a team member about an item or when including an item number in a comment when working with source control files.
