ECT Server for Rally allows you to manage ECTs in Rally, as Defects. To benefit from this integration your Rally Edition should include Defect Management capabilities.

ECT Server for Rally Installation

You should publish ECT Server for Rally in a stable environment of your infrastructure (e.g. if in your QA environment you periodically refresh the database with production data, you might not want to have the ECT Server for Rally component there. If you don’t take precautions, you might lose ECT information previously recorded). We recommend you to publish it in the same environment where you have Lifetime.

Next, you must configure the site properties below (check each site property description for further instructions):
  • ECTRallyIntegration eSpace:  RallyDefaultWorkspacerefRallyServiceURL and RallyValidWorkspaces;
  • ECTRallyConnector eSpace:  DefaultECTUser and ServerAddress.

Finally, follow the steps presented in the ECT Server for Rally Overview.

In Rally create the following Custom Fields, in the work item “Defect” (Workspace Admin or Subscription Adminprivileges needed):
