Creates a simple PLM-ALM integration using GitLab as ALM. The goal is to provide an integration which will allow the project managers to capture a specific tag/release/version in a product structure, controlled with the CMII change management process. It leaves the developper the possibility to mainly work with GitLab which could be their preferred data management environment.

How it works

With this project, Aras has a few federated object which are querying Gitlab through its REST webservice interface.
