Configuring Silk Central Test Manager with Caliber

You must have the SDK installed in order to integrate with Silk Central Test Manager. Refer to the Caliber Installation Guide for installation instructions.

To configure Silk Central Test Manager

  1. Launch Caliber Administrator, select Project > view . Open the External Traceability tab. Select SCTM integration.
  2. Click the Edit button. The Edit Integration dialog appears.
  3. Click the Modify button for configuration. Check that Configuration for SCTM integration text editor appears.
  4. For first time, it is empty. Enter <FrontendServer version='2008'>http://<hostname>:<port>/AlmServices1.0/services</FrontendServer>.
    Note: If the server address or port is invalid, an error message appears when you attempt to connect to SCTM. If you enter the server address of the SCTM server that is switched off, the message “Server is not available” appears. For SCTM 2010, the <FrontendServer> version attribute should be '2010'.
  5. Click OK to configure the SCTM server.
  6. Choose File > Save > Changes from the menu.

For SCTM 2008 onwards, traces can only be created in SCTM and published from SCTM to Caliber during project synchronization process. There is no functionality within Caliber to create traces to SCTM. Therefore, one must have a synchronized project between SCTM and Caliber before creating traces in SCTM to Caliber. See related procedures on “Enabling Integration between Caliber and SCTM
