3.11.1. Data Synchronization

SpiraTeam® is capable of synchronizing its data with a variety of other systems, including but not limited to requirements management systems and standalone bug-tracking tools. The various integration plug-ins for SpiraTeam® and the steps for configuring the data-synchronization settings are described in the SpiraTest External Bug-Tracking Integration Guide.

If you are synchronizing data between SpiraTeam® and one of these other systems, you can click on the ‘Data Synchronization’ administration page at any time and view a list of all the data-synchronizations taking place, together with the status and date/time of last synchronization:

In the example above, we have four plug-ins active, with incidents being exported into JIRA, Bugzilla, FogBugz and Microsoft Team Foundation Server. The data of last sync and the status indicate if there are problems with the plug-in.

The ‘Refresh’ button allows you to refresh the status of the page to ensure that you are seeing the most up to date information. In certain circumstances you may want to reset the date of last sync and force a particular plug-in to examine all the records in the system to see if any were not synchronized - clicking on the ‘Force Complete Re-Sync’ button will achieve this. The recommended procedure for forcing a re-sync is to temporarily stop the SpiraTeam Data-Sync background Windows service, click the button to reset the last-sync date, and then start the service. This will ensure that the resetting doesn’t happen mid-sync.
