General Settings

General Settings contains settings such as:

Configuration 

The Configuration section allows the administrator to set the change detection intervals of the connected repositories and to create a label for their Tasktop instance identifying the environment name and type (testing or production).

Learn more here.

Email Notifications

To facilitate troubleshooting, you can configure automated email notifications for new errors and issues encountered in Tasktop.

License 

This feature is not applicable to Tasktop Cloud.

A license is required to run the application. Upon initial log-in, you will see that your product is currently un-licensed.  You can apply a license and see license details here.

Master Password Configuration 

This feature is not applicable to Tasktop Cloud.

The Master Password is used to encrypt the credentials used in your repository connections and proxy settings, along with any other configuration values that are considered secret, which could include API keys and tokens.

Storage Settings

This feature is not applicable to Tasktop Cloud.

Tasktop automatically stores operational data to a pre-configured Derby database.  This is suitable for evaluation purposes only, and is not supported for production environments.  Configuring Tasktop to utilize an external database will enable you to perform frequent back-ups without having to stop Tasktop Integration Hub, and ensure that your Tasktop Integration Hub practices are consistent with your existing disaster and recovery process.

Advanced Configuration

Advanced Configuration contains the following settings:

Logging 

For troubleshooting purposes, Tasktop logs various events that the application performs.  You can change the logging level from the Advanced Configuration screen.

Move Routes Between Integrations 

There may be rare scenarios when you must move routes from an existing integration to another integration.  For example, you may have configured Tasktop incorrectly and mistakenly created multiple integrations which should be combined into one.  Or you could be upgrading Micro Focus (HPE) ALM, which requires moving projects from an instance running an old version of ALM to a server running a newer instance of ALM.  You can move routes between integrations on the Advanced Configuration screen.

Import Artifact Pair Information

Importing artifact pairs allows Tasktop Integration Hub to know about existing artifact pairs that were created by Tasktop Sync. This prevents duplicate artifacts from being created when you switch from using Tasktop Sync to Tasktop Integration Hub to administer your integrations. Please contact Tasktop Support for additional information on how to use this capability.

Upgrade Backup Files

Upgrading backup files enables you to download and upload artifact data in cases where integrations were resumed individually during an upgrade. The downloaded data corresponds to artifacts that may have been modified while migrations were still running. These files capture any synchronization activity that occurred on individually running integrations, so that you can ensure no updates are duplicated if restoring from backup.

Extensions

Extensions contain the following settings:

Extensions 

Extensions add to Tasktop's basic functionality by facilitating processes such as custom data transformations, payload transformations, advanced person reconciliation, and state transitions.

Learn more here.

Custom Data Transformation

Custom Data Transformation Extensions enable you to map fields to one another which do not have out-of-the-box transforms, and to create custom transforms for comments. You can apply this extension when updating your transform on the  Field Configuration screen.

Payload Transformation 

Payload Transformation Extensions enable you to take the payload sent in by your Gateway Collection and transform it into a format that Tasktop can accept. Once you have saved your extension, you can select it on the  Gateway Collection screen.

Person Reconciliation  

Tasktop comes with a default person reconciliation strategy ("Copy with Default Matching"), which matches based on name, ID, and/or e-mail. This strategy should cover most use cases.  If needed, you can also configure a custom Person Reconciliation Extension to match 'person' fields from one repository to another.  You can select the extension on the  Person Reconciliation screen during the Collection configuration process.

State Transition 

State Transition Extensions enable you to transition artifacts from one state to another according to a set workflow. The extension can be applied from the State Transition Sash on the Collection Configuration screen.

Key-Value Stores 

Key-Value Stores manage and securely store value mappings and confidential data that can be used in Tasktop Integration Hub's Extensions.
