Searching Requirements

You can match a text string to one in the requirement description to search for a requirement. You can search the entire project or you can narrow your search to a requirement type or a requirement sub-tree.

To search for a requirement by name:

  1. Click Home.
  2. Click Find In Tree. The Find in Tree dialog box is displayed.
  3. Enter the name of the requirement you would like to find, or any portion of the name in the Find What field.
    Note: The Find function only searches for text in the requirement list. It does not search requirement descriptions.
  4. If you want to search for a requirement by name, select the Name option button. If you want to search for a requirement by ID number, select the ID number option button.
  5. If you want the search engine to find requirements that match exactly, select the Match whole word only check box.
  6. If you want the search engine to match requirement names by case, select the Match case check box.
  7. Select the direction in which to search (Up from the currently selected requirement, or Down).
  8. Click the Find Next button until the requirement you are searching for is selected.
