Export Word Doc Requirements to Spirateam - Into existing Project Hierarchy - Bespoke Position.

Monday, June 22, 2015


We have an existing Project that has been manually input. This has many existing requirements with some place holders for import of my requirements that exist in a MS Word document in separate sections.

I can successfully import the sections of word document requirements utilising the export addin and Style mapping. However ...

My problem is how do I direct the import to chain into the existing project structure. Just doing an import seems to Tag the imported requirements to the end ? (Which is not where I want them to be)

Is this possible to target the existing place markers ? For instance a particular "Component" ?

Or is it possible to move a chain of requirements from the end to a specific place ?

Many Thanks.

Hi Nicholas

The MS-Word Add-In only has the ability to append the requirements at the end of the hierarchy rather than import them at a specific point.
So you'd need to import them into SpiraTeam and then once they are in the system, you can then drag and drop (or use Edit > Cut, Edit > Paste) to move the branch into the correct location, post-import.
