OIM Sync Bridge is a software module that connects TFS and other applications in your ALM ecosystem. It can set up as Uni or Bi-directional and operates in the background, synchronizing desired information at user defined times. Support for Defects, Requirements, Work Items, Test Cases, Test Plan, Test Results, Tasks, Suggestions, Features, Use Cases, User Stories, and many more Custom Entities can be established in the mapping file. Relationships/ links between entities are maintained during synchronization. Change History is preserved during synchronization. No additional requirements for TFS are needed for support of this integration.

OIM supports both Unidirectional and Bidirectional synchronization between integrated ALM systems:
Unidirectional enables data to flow one direction, such as in a master/slave model, where you want one system to be the master and distribute information to other systems for read-only consumption.
Bidirectional synchronization allows changes to be made in any of the integrated systems, ideal for allowing functional groups to use the ALM system that best meets their individual needs.
OpsHub Integration Manager has deployment options to fit the needs of your business:
On-Premise: OIM can be installed as an on-premise solution to become a fully integrated component in your infrastructure.
Customer Cloud: OIM can be installed in customer’s cloud environment, including Windows Azure or Amazon EC2.
Hosted: OpsHub can host OIM on behalf of the customer to offer OIM as a SaaS
Web Based Administration
OpsHub administrators will be able to manage their OIM environment via the web based administration tool.
The web based administration tool enables administrators to:
Define entity synchronization between ALM systems
Define business rules
Define workflow management
Perform failure management
OIM ensures that a complete history is maintained of your ALM activities as the entities flow between your integrated ALM systems, ensuring that you always have a complete picture and are compliant with applicable regulations.
History is maintained even when one of your individual systems becomes unavailable and once the system is again operational, all transactions that occurred during that time will be reflected in operating system.
