2.11.2. Artifact Naming Conventions

On various screens in the system, you will see lists of artifacts (requirements, test cases, etc.) together with a unique identification number. In order to make it easier to recognize at a glance which type of artifact the identification number refers to, SpiraTeam® uses a system of two-letter prefixes which help identify the type of artifact being displayed. The current prefixes used by the system are:

ArtifactPrefixArtifactPrefix
ProjectPRProject GroupPG
UserUSIncident TypeIT
RequirementRQIncident PriorityIP
Requirement StepRSIncident SeverityIV
Test CaseTCWorkflowWK

Test RunTRCustom Property ValuesPV

In addition, certain artifacts in the system are displayed with an icon that helps distinguish them from each other, and provides additional context on the state of the artifact:
