By default, Polarion installs and uses a Subversion repository. But what if you have some codebase in an external repository… a Git repo, for example? And if you’re new to Git, how do you set up a repository? This post provides a few practical tips to help you get Git, and once you’ve got Git, get going so you can link Git revisions to Polarion Work Items.

We’ve just released a new free “ALM Easy Start” custom configuration for the Polarion ALM platform. When installed to the platform, users are taken to the Wiki on first login, rather than the dashboards, as in the default configuration.
The Wiki on the Repository level contains a Wiki space with some handy tips for Getting Started with Polarion ALM. (You can of course modify or delete this.) Note: If you already have Wiki pages in the Repository ‘webhome’ space, don’t install this configuration – you will overwrite your content on the webhome page!
The configuration is mainly intended for new users and evaluators. Existing users may still want to install the configuration for the project template it contains… projects based on it will start project users out in the Wiki when they first log in. And of course, this serves as an example of how you can customize Polarion ALM. The distribution comes with a PDF installation guide.
