Exporting Requirements


QMetry allows its users to export selected/all requirements out of QMetry in XLSX and CSV file format in a single click. Users can save the file on to the computer drive. Users with User Role that has “Export” rights assigned for the Requirement module can export requirements. Role based user access control for the module is managed under Administration > Roles. If the role assigned to the user does not have rights to export requirements, the  Export option will appear in disabled mode for that user.

Why would you export requirements from QMetry?

Bulk requirements for a particular project are being maintained in QMetry. A change request comes from the customer, which require corresponding modifications in multiple requirements. QA Manager decides to update requirements in Excel file. So the team exports the requirements to Excel, makes required changes in the file and imports that excel file back into QMetry through the Requirement module.


1. Go to the Requirement module.

2. Select the folder on the tree.
