HP ALM Tutorial

Tutorial #1: Introduction to HP ALM (QC) Tool

HP ALM is a software that is designed to manage the various phases of Software Development Life Cycle(SDLC) right from requirements gathering to testing.

Earlier, it was known as HP Quality Center (QC). HP QC acts as a test management tool while HP ALM acts as a project management tool. HP QC is named as HP ALM from version 11.0. I am sure that this tutorial will really be a guide to those who are new to this tool.

Advantages of using this tool

The list given below explains the various advantages of using this tool:

  • Easy to understand and easy to use.
  • Provides integration with external tools such as HP UFT for automation testing and HP Load Runner for performance testing.
  • Visibility of the project status to all stakeholders of the project.
  • Reduces risk associated with managing several artifacts of the project at various phases.
  • Reduces cost and time.
  • The flexibility of usage.


The following are the list of features provided by this tool:

  • Release Management: To achieve traceability between test cases to release.
  • Requirement Management: To ensure if the test cases cover all the specified requirements or not.
  • Test case management: To maintain the version history of the changes done to test cases and act as a central repository for all the test cases of an application.
  • Test Execution management: To track multiple instances of test case runs and to ensure the credibility of the testing effort.
  • Defect Management: To ensure if the major defects uncovered are visible to all major stakeholders of the project and to make sure the defects follow a specified life cycle till closure.
  • Reports Management: To ensure if reports and graphs are generated to keep a track of the project health.

QC Versus ALM

HP Application Lifecycle Management tool provides the core functionality of HP Quality Center along with the following features:

  • Defect Sharing: This tool provides the ability to share defects across multiple projects.
  • Project Reporting: This tool provides customized project reporting across multiple projects using pre-defined templates.
  • Integration with third-party tools: This tool provided integration with third-party tools such as HP LoadRunner, HP Unified Functional Testing and REST API.

HP ALM Version History

HP QC was earlier known as Test Director, which was a product of Mercury Interactive. Later, Test Director was acquired by HP and the product was named as HP Quality Center.

HP Quality Center was named as HP Application Lifecycle Management from version 11.0.

The below table explains the version history:


1Test DirectorV1.52 to v8.0

2Quality Center

V8.0 to v10.0

3Application Lifecycle Management

V11.0 to v11.5x

HP ALM Architecture

The below diagram explains a high-level view of the architecture.

ALM Architecture

The following are the list of components:

#1) HP ALM Client:

HP Application Lifecycle Management tool uses Java Enterprise Edition (J2EE) technology and Oracle or MS SQL server at the backend. HP ALM Client is the browser using which a user can access this tool.

When a user tries to access ALM using its URL, HP ALM client components will be downloaded to the user’s local machine that helps the users to interact with HP ALM Server.

A load balancer is also used to cater multiple requests from the users at the same time.

#2) Application Server:

Application Server is the ALM Server that a user interacts with. The application server uses Java Database Connectivity(JDBC) to cater to the user requests.

#3) Database Server:

Database server includes the following sub-components:

  • ALM Database server
  • Site Administration database server

ALM database server stores all the project related information such as project reports, project users etc. Site Administration database server stores all the information related to the domain, users, and projects.

HP ALM Editions

This tool is available in four different editions, which include:

  • HP ALM
  • HP ALM Essentials
  • HP Quality Center Enterprise Edition
  • HP ALM Performance Center Edition

HP ALM is the main product with all available ALM features. HP ALM essentials edition provides the basic features to the users such as requirements, test plan, and defects. HP QC Enterprise edition is for the users who want to integrate ALM with HP Unified Functional Testing to drive automation scripts through ALM.

HP ALM Performance Center edition is used for the users who want to integrate HP ALM with HP LoadRunner to driver performance tests through ALM.

Import Test cases from Excel to HP ALM

Creation of test cases directly on this tool is a time-consuming process. Hence importing test cases from Excel to this tool can be done using an Excel Add-in.

Defect Lifecycle in HP ALM

A defect is raised when there is a deviation between the actual result and the expected result. Defect lifecycle defines the phases through which a defect has to go through during its lifetime.

The number of phases and the phase description differs from organization to organization and from project to project.

In general, a Defect in ALM tool will go through the following phases.

Defect Life cycle

#1) New: A defect will be in New status when a defect is raised and submitted. This is the default status for every defect initially on HP ALM.

#2) Open: A defect will be in open status when a developer has reviewed the defect and starts working on it if it is a valid defect.

#3) Rejected: A defect will be in Rejected status when a developer considers the defect to be invalid.

#4) Deferred: If the defect is a valid defect, but the fix is not delivered in the current release, a defect will be postponed to the future releases using the status Deferred.

#5) Fixed: Once the developer has fixed the defect and assigned the defect back to the Quality Assurance Personnel, then it will have Fixed status.

#6) Retest: Once the fix is deployed, Tester has to start retesting the defect.

#7) Reopen: If the retest has failed, a tester has to reopen the defect and assign the defect back to the developer.

#8) Closed: If the defect fix is delivered and is working as expected, then the tester needs to close the defect using the status ‘Closed’.

HP Quality Center Introduction

Hp Quality Center Tutorials

This tutorial covers HP ALM Quality Center introduction, installing ALM, and understanding different components.

Introduction to HP Application Lifecycle Management/Quality Center:

HP ALM formerly known as Quality Center is a Test Management tool to manage entire Quality Assurance and testing process for an organization. Before being called HP Quality center it used to be Mercury Test Director.

In my experience, I have come across very few projects (Manual and Automation) that did not use Quality Center software. It is a very simple tool to use, extremely user-friendly. Even if you have never used it before, chances are you will be able to figure out how to in a really short time. However, there is a lot of difference between being able to navigate through the tool and being able to exploit its potential to benefit your project.

So here is a tutorial to easily learn Quality Center capabilities and use them successfully.

Download HP ALM/QC Trial (Now Micro Focus Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) software): The current latest HP ALM version is 12.

=> Here is a detailed tutorial on HP ALM Quality center download and installation.

It is a little tricky to install it on your local machine. But you will be able to do so if you have a compatible machine and understand the components ALM has.

Briefly, the following are the components:

  • A server
  • A client
  • Database

Each component has a certain version that is compatible with ALM.

For system requirement please refer to the page: HP ALM System Requirements

Why is ALM/QC used?

ALM helps make project management, from requirements to deployment easier. It increases predictability and creates a framework to manage projects from a central repository.  With ALM you will be able to:

  1. Define and maintain requirements and tests.
  2. Create Tests
  3. Organize tests into logical subsets
  4. Schedule tests and execute them
  5. Collect results and analyze the data
  6. Create, monitor and analyze defects
  7. Share defects across projects
  8. Track progress of a project
  9. Collect metrics
  10. Share asset libraries across projects
  11. Integrate ALM with HP testing tools other third party tools for a complete automation experience.

Application Lifecycle Management (ALM) flow:

HP Quality Center

How to start ALM

Step #1: To start ALM type the address HTTP://<ALM Platform Server Name>[<:Port number>]/qcbin

Step #2: Click “Application Lifecycle Management” in the below window.

 HP Quality Center

Step #3: Enter the username and password. “Authenticate “button gets activated. Click on it. The Domain and Project fields get activated. Depending on your login credentials you have access to certain projects. (This information is set by your ALM Admin). (Click on image to enlarge)

HP Quality Center

Step #4: Choose the Domain and Project as required and click “Login”. Once you are logged in, ALM window opens up and displays the module in which you were working last.

The domain is nothing but a logical division of departments for your organization. Example: Banking, Retail, Health Care etc.

Projects are the different teams working within the domain. For example in a Retail project, they could be working on the front end store Point of sale app or the back-end inventory module.

The Domain and Project information is set by the ALM Admin.

HP Quality Center

Step #5: The user domain, Project, and user information is displayed in the upper right-hand corner. Also, notice the sidebar. It contains the components from the ALM flow.

  • Dashboard
  • Management
  • Requirements
  • Testing
  • Defects

ALM is all about these components and we will learn what each one is for.  Even though Dashboard is the first in the list, we will discuss it last in our series, simply because it is an overall monitoring feature and it will be more practical to see the data that we actually create.


I hope that this tutorial would have given you a great insight of HP Application Lifecycle Management tool.

HP ALM is one of the most widely used tools among testers. The simplicity and ease of using this tool make it the ideal choice for many organizations worldwide.

This tool can be used in two ways either as a desktop application or on a cloud. As desktop application requires a tedious process of download and installation of HP ALM on local machines, an on-premise cloud is generally preferred for business purposes.

In next tutorial #2, we will cover HP Quality center installation. Later, we will continue HP ALM QC training by taking an example of Gmail application. This session will cover what this tool can do for your project and how best you can manage all your testing related activities in one place.

Are you aware of other interesting facts about this tool apart from the ones mentioned above? Feel free to share your thoughts.

#26 Swati Seela

@Mahesh: ALM client is compatible with Windows 7 but the server is not. So, I am guessing you encountered this error while you were configuring the server. Is that right?
