Hello Surabhi,

There are multiple ways to migrate data from HP ALM to Azure DevOps, depending on the complexity and size of the data. Here are a few options:

Azure DevOps Data Migration Tool: Microsoft provides a data migration tool for migrating data from various sources to Azure DevOps, including HP ALM. The tool supports migrating requirements, test cases, test runs, defects, and attachments. You can download the tool from the Azure DevOps Marketplace and follow the instructions provided in the documentation.

Custom Scripts: You can also create custom scripts to extract data from HP ALM and load it into Azure DevOps. This method requires a good understanding of both HP ALM and Azure DevOps data structures and APIs. You can use HP ALM REST API or OTA API to extract data from HP ALM and Azure DevOps REST API or SDK to load data into Azure DevOps.

Third-Party Migration Tools: There are multiple third-party tools available in the market that specialize in data migration from HP ALM to Azure DevOps. These tools provide a more comprehensive and automated approach to data migration and can handle complex data structures and relationships. Some popular tools are OpsHub, Tasktop, and Kovair.

Regardless of the migration method, it is important to perform thorough testing and validation of the migrated data to ensure that all data has been migrated correctly and without any data loss. It is also recommended to involve all stakeholders, including developers, testers, and project managers, in the migration process to ensure a smooth transition.

Hope this helps Mate!,

Kind regards,

Hello Surabhi,

Migrating data from HP ALM (now called Micro Focus ALM) to Azure DevOps can be a bit tricky, but it's totally doable!
I've use a tool called Exalate for this type of synchronisations in the past ant it worked great!

I suggest you take a look on that tool seems that it can be great for your use case
