Baseline Support for SCTM Integration

SCTM's support for Caliber integration enables you to select the current baseline or existing user-defined baselines. When user-defined baselines are selected, the Map Requirement button is disabled (under Requirements > Properties ) and requirements are not updated in the integrated Caliber project.

Modified Baselined Requirements Can Not be Imported into Test Manager

Requirements that are not of the current baseline can only be changed in Caliber if the version of the requirement that is used for the baseline is changed. Such changes are only updated within SCTM requirements when a manual or scheduled synchronization is performed.

Baselines Can be Changed After Import into Test Manager

It is possible to change the configured baseline to a different user-defined baseline or the current baseline. After such a change, the next synchronization of the baseline (either manual or scheduled) will update the SCTM project and update/create/delete requirements as required. When a baseline is changed, you will be presented with a message stating that the changes will take effect after the next synchronization. When a baseline is changed from the current baseline to a user-defined baseline, a message is displayed informing you that, for user defined baselines, upload of requirements is disabled.

Using the Same Requirement Type Within Different Projects

You can use the same requirement type of a Caliber project more than once when used with user defined baselines. There is however a restriction of allowing a requirement type of a Caliber project only once within the same SCTM database when current baselines are in effect.
