Add new requirements package

Thursday, April 13, 2017


I'd like to add a new Requirement Type = Package.  However, under Planning > Requirements, clicking Insert will automatically add a req Type=Feature.  If I Edit the newly added req type, options are: Design Element, Feature, Need, Quality, Use Case, User Story.  There is no type=Package.

Note: I have administration permissions with role as Project Owner.  Do I have the correct permissions, and how can I add Req Type=Package?

Thank you.

The 'Package' is a special reserved type for requirements that are 'parent' requirements and have other child requirements. Only those requirements can be 'packages'

That's exactly what I 'd like to create.... a parent requirement so that several children requirements can branch off it.  How do I create the "parent" requirement?  Thanks.
