Defining Validation Procedure

When you create a requirement, it is often helpful for testers to know how to verify that the requirement is implemented properly. Therefore, you can enter in a validation procedure for each requirement if you want. The validation procedure is “free form,” meaning the procedure can be any form you want, from a paragraph to a numbered list of steps.

To define the requirement validation procedure:

  1. Select the requirement for which you want to define the validation procedure.
  2. Click the Validation tab. The tab is displayed.
  3. Type the validation procedure in the Validation Procedure field.
  4. Save your changes by selecting Requirement > Save Changes from the menu.
  5. To delete changes, select Edit > Cancel Changes from the menu.
  6. If the Comment dialog box is displayed, enter a comment about the change and click OK.
