Traceability Report

The Traceability Report provides the trail of Requirements - Test Cases - Issues. By default, the Traceability Report is generated on the basis of Requirements that exist in the current Project. When traced by requirements, the report displays traceability of issues with their associated test cases and associated requirements, and vice versa.

You can redefine search for specific Requirements / Test Cases / Issue to view the corresponding report. Three filters are provided to let you select the entities on the basis of which you want to generate the report:

  • Trace by Requirements

  • Trace by Test Cases

  • Trace by Issues

  • Trace by Test Executions

The report shows the hierarchy of issues (Requirement > Test Case > Issue) for the current Project as well as across Projects displaying linked test assets from other Projects.

Click on the Requirement Key / Test Case Key / Issue Key/ Test Suite Key to open the detail page in a separate tab.
