What traceability exists between RTC and RQM?

It looks like the 2.0 products will allow us to have a single Defect Work Item workflow that can be tracked and managed in a single tool (RTC), i.e. a Tester identifying a Defect within RQM, and generating / managing the defect in RTC.

The only thing that was unclear is what traceability exists between RTC and RQM. For example, how would a Tester/Test Lead be aware of defects that exist for Test Cases within RQM? How would a Developer known which test case is associated within the Defect in RTC?

Within RQM, a Tester could see blocking defects related to their Test Execution Records, not Test Cases as such. In a TER view, if you select one of the records, it will show its related blocking defects in the Related Information section. You could group by Test Case in order to see the TERs and their errors related to each test case. (Though I can think of enhancements that would make this easier to do.)

From RTC, a developer looking at a Defect generated in RQM would currently see the Test Case and Test Script name listed in the Description. There is an enhancement requested for 2.0 to make these into links on the Links tab instead.

Please let us know if you have further questions. Thanks.
