Deleting a Requirement Type

CAUTION:
To prevent data loss in the current project, as well as other projects, you cannot delete a requirement type that is in use in any project. This is a resource intensive operation if there are many requirements in the type you are attempting to delete. You should not perform this on an active system since users may be affected.

To delete a requirement type:

  1. Click Administration.
  2. Click Requirement Types. The Requirement Types dialog box is displayed.
  3. Select the requirement type to delete.
  4. Click the Delete button. A message is displayed verifying that you want to delete the requirement type.
  5. Click Yes to delete the requirement type, or No to save it.
    Note: If the requirement type is in use in any project, you cannot delete it. You can, however, remove it from use in a project (see “Setting Requirement Types Within a Project” below).
  6. Click Close in the Requirement Type dialog box. The requirement type is deleted.
