Defining Requirement Types

Note: This procedure can only be performed by Server administrators.

Atlas organizes requirements by type. A Requirement Type defines a logical grouping of requirements that will share common User Defined Attributes.

The key properties of a Requirement Type are:

  • A name (displayed in the Requirement tree).
  • A set of User Defined Attributes on the user interface.

Atlas makes it easy to reuse requirement types among Projects. Once created, a Requirement Type can be assigned to any Project, minimizing the time it takes to create Projects.

Server administrators can follow the steps below to create and modify Requirement Types.

After creating them, associate User Defined Attribute Groups with the Requirement Type.

Watch how to do it: Adding New Requirement Types and Associating Requirement Types with a Project.

  2. Click (Home).
  3. Choose a Project from the Available Projects list.

  8. Add/remove User Defined Attribute groups using the Available User Defined Attribute Groups list.
