Issue/Introduction

If ALM is not used, is there a way to disable the ALM integration?

This is to avoid errors similar to:

Environment

Release : 4.10

Component : TDM Web Portal

Resolution

To disable ALM, comment out the following line in C:\Program Files\CA\CA Test Data Manager Portal\conf\application.properties:

#Endpoint URL to ALM
#almservice.endpoint.url=http://localhost:8095/ALMService

Note that the TDMWeb.log shows:
