Attributes

Each requirement in Caliber can be fully qualified with a set of attributes. All requirements share a common set of attributes. Those include:

Additionally, the project administrator defines custom attributes (user-defined attributes) and assigns them to each requirement type in the project. For all requirements of that type, users can set values to these custom attributes.

Caliber provides a wide variety of attribute types:
