Enabling Integration with CA Agile Central

To enable integration with CA Agile Central:

  1. In the menu, click Projects > Project List.
  2. Select the project to which you want to establish integration.
  3. In the menu, click Project:<Project Name> > Project Settings .
  4. Click the Requirements Management tab.
  5. Click New Integration.
    Note: You can enable creating, editing and deleting requirements through Silk Central, rather than only allowing modifications through the integrated tool. You can allow modifications directly in Silk Central's UI, and/or through Silk Central's web services by checking the respective Allow requirement create, edit, and delete... check boxes.
    The New Integration dialog box opens.
  6. Select CA Agile Central from the list and click Next. The Edit Configuration dialog box opens.
  7. Type a Name for the new profile. This is the name that is displayed in lists where the profiles are available for selection.
  8. Type the URL.
  9. Type valid Username and Password credentials for CA Agile Central, or type a valid API Key instead. An API Key can be used to access your CA Agile Central subscription data without using your username and password. For more information about CA Agile Central API Keys, refer to the CA Agile Central Application Manager page.
  10. Optional: If direct access to the Internet is restricted, and the CA Agile Central REST service is located in a machine outside the scope of the internal network, use the Proxy Host and Proxy Port fields to specify a proxy through which Silk Central can connect to CA Agile Central.
    Note: To connect to CA Agile Central by using a proxy, you need to fill out both fields, Proxy Host and Proxy Port.
  11. Optional: If you want to synchronize custom fields, type their names into the Custom Fields field, separated by commas. The internal field names must be used, not the display names.
  12. Click Test Connection to confirm that the host and user credentials you have entered are correct. A Connection successful message box displays if the settings are correct. Click OK to continue.
    Note: Consult your system administrator if you are not able to establish a connection.
  13. Click OK.
  14. Click Load. The Project list box is populated with all the projects from all workspaces in CA Agile Central that you have permissions for.
  15. From the Project list box, select the external project with which the Silk Central project is to be integrated.
  16. Click OK to save your settings.
