CollabNet's DevOps Lifecycle Manager solution is here to improve application delivery through integration, automation and continuous feedback. It uses tools such as DLM and ActionFlow to create rules and workflow systems to invoke actions based on specific events in your software development life cycle.


DLM is the next generation platform for integrating and automating software development tools used in the entire software development life cycle. These tools include planning, version control, continuous integration/build, code review, test, deployment, monitoring and more.The DLM platform is rules based, so the first thing you must do is create rules to invoke action based on your processes. A few examples of rules to drive process include invoking a build job in Jenkins based on a commit message to a specific branch in a repository, invoking a workflow in CollabNet ActionFlow to deploy a build based on a successful build message from a Jenkins job, and opening a defect in a project based on a health event from a monitoring tool like New Relic.

ActionFlow works as the orchestrator on the TeamForge solution. It is integrated with TeamForge and connected on DLM for the creation of different workflows. The workflows fire actions that will do almost everything you need to automate your development environment.

Alerting and Value Stream Activity Console

DLM 17.4 (and later) is equipped with the ability to set up alerts. You can define alerts while creating rules and all such alerts, when triggered, are listed in the Home tab’s Value Stream Activity Console.

For more information, see Create Rules and Value Stream Activity Console.
