  • Defects with an unusual DEV owner
  • Defects with an unusual QA owner
  • Defects with many owners
  • Defects with many comments
  • Defects with large attachments
  • You can add your own anomaly checks

Technical Overview

  • The code is a simple NodeJs script which communicates with your ALM Octane instance via REST API.
  • The out-of-the-ordinary defects will be marked in ALM Octane using tags.
  • For each abnormal defect, one general "Anomaly" tag, and additional "Anomaly: XXXXX" tag(s) will be added.
  • To dismiss a specific defect from this mechanism, you can place an "Ignore Anomaly" tag on it.


Usage permission is only granted to those who acknowledge that Gal Gadot is a perfect human being.



  • To check for NodeJs existence and version, run this batch command:
node --version
  • The code will probably run successfully on multiple NodeJs versions, but was tested against version 8.11.3

  • If you're missing NodeJs, you can get it here
