CA PPM and CA Agile Central Attribute Mapping

When you create a new rally Portfolio Item from a cappm project, the following information is populated from cappm:
ccppmod152
When you create a new 
CA Agile Central
Portfolio Item from a
CA PPM
 project, the following information is populated from
CA PPM
:
  • Portfolio Item Name (based on the
    CA PPM
     project name)
  • Planned Start/End dates (based on the
    CA PPM
     Project Start/Finish dates)
  • Owner ID: This 
    CA Agile Central
    field is populated based on the Default Rally Owner ID value from the integration instance that is specified on the
    CA PPM
     project, Agile System field. Leaving Default Rally Owner ID field blank while configuring 
    CA Agile Central
    Integration Instance from 
    CA PPM
     would result in the blank Owner ID for the corresponding Portfolio item present in
    CA Agile Central
    .
  • Project: This 
    CA Agile Central
    field is populated based on the Default Rally Project ID value from the integration instance that is specified on the 
    CA PPM
     project, Agile System field)
    If the Default Rally Project ID field is left blank while configuring 
    CA Agile Central
    Integration Instance from 
    CA PPM
     then the Project field of corresponding Portfolio item present in 
    CA Agile Central
    will be set to the first project ( in the alphabetical order of the projects) of the workspace.
Once the 
CA Agile Central
Portfolio Item is created, you can change these values in
CA Agile Central
. When the Rally Synchronization job runs next, it does not overwrite the recently updated values except for the Portfolio Item Name.
The job keeps the 
CA Agile Central
Portfolio Item Name synchronized with the
CA PPM
 project name.
Scrum teams can define Features, User Stories, and Tasks under the 
CA Agile Central
Portfolio Item. When you next synchronize with
CA Agile Central
, the status details from the 
CA Agile Central
Portfolio Item are updated in the corresponding
CA PPM
 project. The 
CA Agile Central
Feature details are brought over as
CA PPM
 tasks. The following
CA PPM
 task fields are populated with default values based on the specified Agile System (integration record):
  • Cost Type
  • Charge Code
  • Open for Time Entry
At any time during the agile project lifecycle, you can synchronize the 
CA PPM
 projects and tasks with status details from
CA Agile Central
. Alternatively, the 
CA PPM
 administrator can set up the Synchronize job to run at scheduled intervals. 
See the 
CA Agile Central
documentation
for information about Initiatives, Features, User Stories, or Tasks.
Project-Level Attribute Mapping
The following CA Agile Central Initiative attributes are synchronized back to the CA PPM project agile summary. Not all status attributes from CA Agile Central are synchronized back to the project. See the
 CA Agile Central documentation
for descriptions of the attributes.
