Traceability Requirement - Design Element

Tuesday, July 2, 2019


In order to reach an end to end traceability I would like to associate the Design elements with the requirements. Is this possible  with this tool? I found this article about this issue: ,  

but I don't have an Artifact called Design Element, and I dont think I can create new Artifacts. Do I have a wrong version of Spiratest (I am useing a demo version)? And if the traceability isnt reached through associate artifacts, how is it planned in this tool to reach the end to end traceability?

Best regards

In this example "Design Element" is just the name of a requirement type, not a separate artifact.

So use the specific requirement type 'Design Element' and link your Use Case, and System Requirement to that.

All three items in this example are requirements, just different requirement types.
