Synchronization rules

Synchronization rules specify how IBM® Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) item properties map to ClearQuest® record fields.

EWM provides a framework for proxy items, which correspond to external object types (in this case, ClearQuest objects). The proxy item connects the EWM item with the ClearQuest record and enables replication of data from ClearQuest records into the Jazz™ repository.

Each proxy item references a synchronization rule. Within a synchronization rule you map ClearQuest record type fields to EWM item properties. The mappings are directional. Incoming synchronization defines how changes to a ClearQuest record are propagated to a EWM item. Outgoing synchronization defines how a change in a EWM item propagates to a ClearQuest record.

Synchronization rules also identify the synchronization managers that execute synchronization operations. The ClearQuest Synchronizer provides the synchronization managers for connecting ClearQuest record types and EWM items.

A unique synchronization rule is required for each mapping of a ClearQuest record type to a EWM item type.
