Associating requirements from different projects

Wednesday, September 28, 2011


I would like to know if the following functionality is available or planned for Spira:

For requirements one can define "Associations". Unfortunately,  the "Add new Association" dialog only allows to choose from requirements in the current project.

For our development setup it would make sense to have the respective requirements in separate projects and allow to link between those requirements. (Example: A national standard provides a lengthy list of requirements that some - not all - projects needs to fulfill. Since I don't want to copy all requirements from this national standard into each project it would make sense to define them once in a separate project and only link to the individual project requirements.)

Thanks for your response!

Currently SpiraTest is based on the model of independent, separate projects where data cannot be linked between them. One workaround would be to use the URL Attachment option to link the items together.

This was extended in v5.1 a while back to allow cross-project associations:
