IBM Engineering Workflow Management (EWM) Integration (FREE)
This service allows you to go from GitLab to EWM work items mentioned in merge request descriptions and commit messages. Each work item reference is automatically converted to a link to the work item.
This IBM product was formerly named Rational Team Concert(RTC). This integration is compatible with all versions of RTC and EWM.
