Requirements tree bug. Duplication of requirement trees

Thursday, March 14, 2013

Good morning,

Just a quick side note before I get to this issue: You really need a forum SEARCH function, so that people can see if an issue has already been raised.

Bug: Go to the requirements tree (ideally with plenty of requirements already inside), then click to show all levels. Now click to contract the root requirements, one at a time. Watch as there are many duplicates of all of your requirement trees, with the same requirement IDs appearing in the list.

Version: In both Spirateam 3.1 and Spirateam 4.0.

Duplicatable?: Yes

Hi Peter

There is actually a global search at the top of the page that searches both forums and knowledge base articles. Have you seen that?

Could you please log a support ticket with this issue so that we can better assist you?

Thanks Adam :)

Top search works great, thanks for that. I am not used to site searches covering forums, so there you go.

I will ask our tools support to raise a support ticket for this issue.

I got the following email to alert me that I have a reply on the forums: (exactly as you see below. Seems it's not filling in the $tags with information?). (I got the idea from the topic in the email though, and I only have the one post, but thought you may want to solve it.)
